    Im more concerned with black widows than mice. Never fails I find them under the tongues of trailers that I haven't used in a while. Found one this afternoon under the angle iron on my 4wheeler trailer. Decided to check it for wasp before just grabbing it to lift up onto the ball and was glad I did.

    We have those along with the brown widow, and brown recluse spiders. Why they love barbecue pits is a mystery to me. Anyone have another interesting snake story?

    Well, my only other snake story is when I was about 13 or 14, I was helping my grandpa out for the summer in NW New Mexico. I got out of the truck to open a gate that was on top of a cattle guard and about the time I unlatched the gate, I heard the snake start to rattle. If you ever want to see a chubby white kid jump like MJ, put a snake under a cattle guard! I ended up hopping on top of the gate and "riding" it across the cattle guard. Of course, my grandpa was wondering what was going on at that point. I motioned him to come across, but he insisted I cross back over, not knowing what trouble was waiting at the cattle guard. Again, chubby white kid long jumped the cattle guard, which was a feat in itself for me. I grabbed the .22 rifle my grandpa always had with him and searched for the snake. He never rattled again, but I finally saw him about 6 inches away from the barrel of the gun when I was staring into the cattle guard. If I remember right, the snake was almost 4 foot and had a bunch of rattles. I actually still have the rattles today packed in a box full of keepsakes from hunts.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    Have the brown recluse too...got bit by one when I was 13 and it was not a fun experience. Someone shoving an industrial size q-tip with alcohol elbow deep into your arm then packing it with a softball size deal of gauze will scare you for life.

    Buddy decided to take his ranch truck into the city one day and had a rattler crawl out from behind his dash and into the floorboard while doing 75 down I-10. He claims he like to have wrecked.

    HA!! Yeah, that wouldn't be cool. That reminds me of a time I was in college and stopped at a gas station in town. There were a bunch of guys gathered around the front of a truck with the hood open looking at the engine compartment. All of a sudden it sounded like a bunch of high school girls started screaming. I looked over and saw a rattle snake crawling up over the grille of the truck. I guess that happens pretty often when its starting to get cool.
    Now therefore, please take your weapons, your quiver and your bow, and go out to the field and hunt game for me.

    It seems to guessing bc it's the warmest place they can find. Best case scenario is they keep squirrels from getting in there and chewing up your wiring.

    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."
