Judge: 1 snake: Nada


Recommended Posts

Thats About the average size we have around my area. They don't get as big as they do down south because they only get a few months to fatten up before hibernation.:drool:

With as much time as I've spent in NODAK since '99, I've never, ever even seen a snake of any kind!!! I hate snakes. I know they're good critters because they eat badder critters.........but they freak me out!!!!:ahhh::ahhh:

The only snakes I see are the big black snakes, they are harmless. Bad thing is they are always laying across the trails when I'm on my dirt bike and you can't tell if its a log or a snake until you are right up on it, then you don't want to run it over because theres always that thought in the back of your head that it's gonna strike really fast or something. Nevertheless, I can stop right in front of it and it acts like you're not even there and slowly moves out of the way, and I do mean slow, I think they think it's fun to know they're holding you up.

they freak me out too and we only have them like 2 feet long and harmless. Just being so slithering and quick, they creep me out when I see them, especially when they startle me:mad:

We get mostly Garter snakes around here. Black/brown and yellow strips and harmless... But what ever you do is don't pick it up bare handed. :nono: Garter snakes has a defense system of create a nasty stink through its skin and it doesn't wash off either. So hands will stink for days... :rolleyes:

From what I read of where you hunt in the eastern and east central parts of ND you will find nothing but bull snakes and gardner snakes. You need to get to the west side of the Missouri river and west 1/3 of the state to get into rattler country. You need to head west out of that flat lander duck pond area to really appreciate the state. I rarely ever go anywheres east of Bismarck as its way to flat and boring for this guy. I was born and raised and live in the river break hills along the south and west side missouri river where there is actually scenery and character to the landscape.:)
