Was checking a den and as usuall there was a couple right at the mouth of the den, problem was I walked past a few very well hidden ones 20 to 30 ft away from the den. I'm done for this year.

Be extra careful. They probably haven't fed since they went in several months ago. Venom sacs are most likely full and would deliver a heavy dose.

Great photos. Be careful out there.

They love to get in a spot with dappled sunlight. Keeps them just about the right temperature and makes them almost impossible to pick out.

Dang, I'd prolly step on one of them suckers. They're well hidden, and all fat and sassy looking. They don't bother me as long as they aren't no where near me eek
:Awesome pics!

I kill every one that I can. I hate the darn things. You'll never thin 'em out anyway, about like hogs and 'yotes.
