My experience with snakes particularly lg constrictors. I prefer a blade than a bullet they have small heads compared to their bodies and always moving that head. It sure looked like a lg healthy snake hate to see that running loose in our woods for sure. :proud: :old_glory:

the hunter had walked right past that spot in the dark and noticed a really rank smell...could have been him who got entangled.
