Can anyone give me any feedback about .38 special shotshells? I apparently have a LARGE snake living under my porch and am going to have to dispatch said snake.
I was not aware of that. Thanks. I have not seen the snake, but my 15 year old grandson tells me it is 9 feet long and about as big around as a half dollar. I would not feel threatened by a 3 foot garden snake, but this thing, if his report is correct, is huge. And my only livestock are my dogs. A Yorkie and a Maltese, either of which would be just a snack for a snake that large.Killing Native Snakes in Tennessee
It is illegal to kill any species of snakes native to the state of Tennessee, venomous or non-venomous. The only rare exception is made for a homeowner who feels genuinely threatened by a snake. This exception particularly applies to a homeowner who finds a snake inside of their home. It is also legal to defend livestock that are being threatened by a snake. This means that it is always illegal to go out into the wild and kill a snake in its natural Tennessee habitat.
Thought I would post this just in case you weren't aware of it.
Find someone with a good Rat Terrier or Dachshund and let the dogs handle it. If it's not poisonous don't let them kill it, if you can. Keep it around to scare your daughter's boy friend.Can anyone give me any feedback about .38 special shotshells?
