  1. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    some time ago I saw a great trap used mainly in the South East Asia made out of simple pieces of common steel/iron wire. it seems to be very effective and they use it also for squirrels, snakes, birds and other small/medium games. it can easily be set hair sensitive or very firm simply moving...
  2. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    I found this guy warming up under my ag tarp, this afternoon. It looks like a juvenile black rat snake. It didn't want anything to do with me, but I picked it up, showed it to the kids and taught them how to determine if it's poisonous or not. This is the second snake, in 4 years, I've found on...
  3. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    Found this little guy on the driveway today. Anyone have a guess as to the species? I looked close (as I dared) and could not see any pits behind the nostrils. It's about 8-10" in length, about 3/8" diameter. Of course I left him (her?) be, and go about the divine mission of turning bugs into...

    I am currently taking a Wilderness First Responder course; and on learning about how snakebite kits work (or rather, how they DON'T) I employed my super-google skills to see the study. First result. Thankfully someone advised this on amazon, for...

    While walking along a creek taking stock pictures for a Thrunite flashlight review I heard leaves rustling behind me. I turned around and saw a snake slithering down the bank and into the creek. Upon reaching the water the snake stopped and was looking straight at me. I have heard that the...

    I found this article, it's relevant for Australian snake species and I'm sure for many others around the world so thought I would share: I'm about to head into the bush and was wondering if anyone has further advice regarding...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've seen more snakes out in the woods and fields this year while turkey hunting than ever before. It's really quite amazing - we've yet to be out there, for almost a month now, where we have not run into at least one, usually more than one and as many as a half dozen, snakes of some kind - I...

    I'am posting this in the urban survival section, because this snake was found under of piece of tin. My wife and I picked up a piece of tin to move it, and out crawls this snake.

    Any close encounters? I live in Arizona and come across them often, the closest "accidental" encounter came as we were climbing over a small rocky hill, we were about 1/2 way up and stopped to rest, after about 10 min, I stood up , there on the rock next to me was a "BIG" diamondback...

    For people that do not get into the woods very much, getting a copperhead and a water moccasin mixed up might be an easy thing to do. So what this article is going to do is give a basic run down on both types of snakes. The examples that...
  11. General Discussion
    I realize this has nothing to do with survival but does it? I was headed to my truck and walked past the back door and I heard a commotion and not 2 feet away a black rat snake falls from the guttering onto the back steps and old diary milk can. Had I proceeded to go into the house the snake...

    These pictures were taken up at the camp. My son in law and I were going to check on a Jeep of mine, when TJ almost stepped on this snake. The trailer hitch of the jeep is visible in the first picture. If you came across this snake in the woods, would you have anything to worry about? The...
