I've found one a couple times. This guy takes the prize though.

That's a lot of snakes. There's some people here that would've loved to catch all of em.

I stepped into a pop up once while dark and found one in the chair. Very close encounter, to close.

Spent about 2 hours in the blind with them before I stood up and kicked some cedar leaves and dirt to fill in a gap where light was coming thru, and as I kicked the dirt I uncovered and kicked out in the head. Luckily it was cold enough they were slow moving. I've been bit by one before, I'd rather not do it again.

Have had one rattler in a popup. Now if setting one up for bow season that will leave there for the season it gets sulphur pellets from Tractor Supply under and around it. Doesn't seem to bother the deer and haven't seen a snake around or in a blind since.

I don't mind any snake as long as I see it in advance. I'm not sure I'd of made it through the actual door in my hurry to get out if I was in there and discovered I had company that close.

I got into a pop up early one morning before the sun came up, as it finally got bright enough I looked up to see the entire roof lined with red wasp. I am horribly allergic, luckily it was early enough and cool enough they were still slightly lethargic. Ruined the hunt and almost hurt my self trying to get out of there

Had the same thing happen to me. Looked up about a foot above my head and there was at least 20 of them but they were so slow moving them couldn't do anything.

Yea it was two. What ruined the hunt wasn't them being in there, but the putrid musk smell they made when I killed them. It made the pop up rank for the weekend.
