It's the second time I've seen on there, really cool. It was getting a bit fucked off after I'd stuck the camera in it's face a few times!

You wouldnt want to shoot any wild life at Bisley. It would get you banned from the camp. Its in the Bisley rule book

The only 2 occasions that I've seen a snake in the wild were both at Bisley: once outside Melville and the other next to sheds in Short Siberia...

I met this Aussie once who said he kept a short barrelled 9 shot pump as his snake gun - short as in shorter than the mag tube

Two years ago I was guiding a newbie through a stalk and we were belly crawling along a hedgeline when he stopped. I tapped his heel to get him moving. He didn't and indicated out toward the hedge where I saw we were paralleling a rather large Mrs Adder. I think they always look bigger when you're on their level..

Tastes like chicken.................................

See adders twice at Bisley now, first time was during the Services meeting in 2004, unfortunately a squaddie took exception to the little bugger and stamped on its head. The second time we were getting some scran at Jennies and we noticed one going into one of the out buildings of one of the lodges, getting ready for hibernation.

Get to see loads of them up in Cumbria, especially on the Sellafield site, where we often have to stop traffic while a CNC plod escorts the snake accross the road

Oh and if you get caught interfering with this type of UK protected wildlife theres a £5000 fine to be had.

Stop tramping about like a herd of elephants then, can you remember the scene in Kung Fu when Caine walks across the rice paper?

Ok Grasshopper.

That's cuz after growing up near Sellafield it's twenty foot long and glows in the dark

(the snake, not the plod)

I spent six months in Australia and didn't see many in the wild.... only three IIRC..... and they reckon you are never more than 50 yards from a venomous snake out there..  Bloody scary when you are 500 miles from the nearest hospital.

Sounds like a good time to trample around like a herd of elephants.

Totally unnecessary so we grassed him up to range control, who took a very very dim view of it (especially as killing protected species on Govt land is a federal offense.
They took him and made him get in a stress position on the rocky ground for what seemed an eternity, and his suffering was only broken by a roll call.

Bastard


What a cnut

Saw some adders recently in Devon warming themselves on top of a wall, 3 together, then just along a little way another 2...

Must be why they took my Glock knife away...................well, that and the voices.


I donate page 2 in memoriam to the brutally slain Arizonian rattlesnake.
