    Talking Results: Snake 0; RnG 1

    A Copperhead surprised me. That is the wrong thing to do. It was right by my ankle, very PO'd, and only our German Shepard taunting it prevented a strike.

    Results......Well.....I might have one of our fine leather artists make me a fancy BBQ rig for my BBQ Glock........


    Here it is before skinning:




    After Skinning:



    Coiled up for tanning:



    Here he sleeps......



    The tanning solution is 50% Alcohol and 50% Glycerine

    That's a nice skin there.

    That's one good thing about Vermont, not a lot of poisonous snakes. We have some, but not many.

    I think that would be a fine looking holster. Glad you didn't end up in the ER.

    Cool skin...how did you end its career?

    I took the head off one that thought he could beat the blade kit on my weedeater. I wish I had thought about skinning it. Of course someone else would have to do the skinning.

    Good thing is copperheads are not terribly aggressive.
