Damn it I posted another pic twice.
Oh well, just wanted to show pics of my fierce bad hunting dogs, silly critters.
The pic of the device on the hood of the truck is my custom made Snake Dispatch Tool. My dad made this for me after an encounter I had with a Copperhead. At the time, I only had a rather short pair of hedge clippers as a weapon. The snake was in my garage and my dogs were right there, so I grabbed what I had available and whacked the shit out of it's head. Anywhoo, dad decided I needed something more effective, so he made this for me. It has already come in handy when I had to dispatch a half dead groundhog that Gracie found, and last night when I found a Black Snake sitting on top of one of my feed cans, I was able to ask it to leave, in a rather inpolite kind of way. I keep it hooked onto the back of Dolly with a bungy cord.
