I stepped out of my blind in the dark and he was waiting. He let me know immediately who he was, problem was, I couldn't see him in the dark. Once he moved I had him, he was less than two feet away. I'm sure it would have been comical if someone had been watching, I was back tracking like crazy. Luckily I had a t-post that I tripped over trying to get away from him. That's my blind he's up against, very close call.

Last night, Young County. Last thing I expected when I stepped out. Problem was I had deer under the feeder and I was trying to back out quietly. That plan went to hell real quick.

You should probably tilt your blind over and look under it as there may be more.

I planned on doing that this morning. I couldn't get out of there fast enough last night.

That's why I wear snake boots 90% of the time. Very rarely do I switch to my warmer hunting boots. By the looks of this season I may wear them the whole time.

I would have shot myself in the foot! That is scary!

Like DLRZ said, I also wear my snake boots almost all the time when hunting or working on my place. Knock on wood that I haven't had a problem, but they are there and it only takes one to mess up your day.

Glad you got him with no injury to yourself.

Found a den in mid December on a rocky ( big rocks ) just to the south of Ranger hill in Eastland county about 40 years ago. Climbing hill and spotted one coiled up on top of rock and got to looking and found 5 more on top of rocks soaking up the sun. Killed all of them as they never got excited, it's amazing what a 130 grain 270 bullet will do aimed about 1" outside of the coil and rock explodes, not much left.The rancher had another pasture that had a large den on it and let the snake hunters thin them out. rifle
