Most Folk's that I know of that hunt also use the meat.
Yeah, the Brown Tree Snakes from Guam are a real problem. Can't let them into Hawaii because they will decimate the native birds and animals there.

I've caught rattlesnakes and copperheads but never have killed them. I release them back into the wild away from the beaten path. I even changed the mind of a co-worker who would kill them until he got to know me and realized they aren't evil as people make them out to be.

A friend of mine and I went down to a quarry lake by our river and found 2 guys that had just killed an Eastern King Snake. They were so proud until we told them that they kept the copperheads at bay. I never understand why people kill snakes.

Why do you despise them?

I've no problem with hunting for food, though I'm not sure I could bring myself to kill them myself. Hypocritical I know because I eat meat. That is something I have to deal with. I try to thank the animal for providing me the food. It's something I should do more of.

Good one Rockdawg. I was a Laker fan myself. Bball no longer seems to me to be a team sport, I got out of it years ago. The Lakers are an embarrassment now.
LOL, I was wondering why it was in this section as well.

I prefer college b-ball, they actually look like they are trying to win. And yeah, I would imagine the Lakers lost some fans with their recent shenanigans during the Mavs game...pitiful.

.
I just don't like them and consider them dangerous around humans! Especially considering how many venomous snakes thier are! The only way Humans need to be around snakes is if
A-Their an expert or
B-Your killing them in a way that has minimum risk.
C-If you have no choice!
