A friend sent me this email. He says the photos are from this past June. I have never heard of letting Blue Indigo snakes loose but it is an interesting idea as Dove Season approaches.


BJ: This is exactly why I used to buy as many Blue Indigo snakes as I could, to turn them loose on my South Texas Ranches. THEY DO HUNT DOWN AND KILL RATTLESNAKES.
 
Larry:  Way Cool. I spotted this Indigo snake out getting his breakfast.  The rattler is about 2.5", the Indigo about 5'  As I sneeked up to snap a couple of pix, he reared-up and took off with the rattler's head in his mouth.  Yum, Yum.....I guess he thought I was gonna take the rattler away from him, NOT!!  I had heard for a long time Indigos did this, but have never seen it, now you have too.

This is my first hunting season in TX.  I've hunted plenty in Eastern Washington and we have our fare share of rattlers.  Do I need to invest in any snake proof "wear" if I'm going to be out during early dove and quail season?  What would you recommend?

Jason: Those photos are awesome. 

Jeremy: It totally depends where you're going to be hunting.  Dove season definitely is the worst time of year for hunters concerning rattlers.  Personally I've stepped on one going back to get a drink from the truck up in northwest Texas.  It all depends on where you're going to be.  Do you know where in Texas?

I wear snake guards whenever I dove hunt or walk in the woods in the summer in areas where I know snakes like to hang out. Probably overkill. I bought them at Academy and they clip on around my jeans. I think they were less than $20.

I plan on hunting within a few hours drive of Corpus if at all possible.  $20 sounds like it would be worth it if you can stand to wear additional layers during the hot part of the season.

I have seen or heard of no real evidence that Bull snakes do But have seen many instances over the years of Blue indigos eating them they were imported from India I think years ago to help with the rattlesnakes

The second amendment says nothing about "hunting"

About two years ago, I caught a rattler about 18" long and put it into a  aquarium.  The next day I found a couch whip about 48" long and put it into the aquarium.   The next day the rattler was gone.  I can only assume that the couch whip ate the rattler.

As many rattlesnakes I have stepped on and as much has I dislike them I don't really want them to be eliminated by an invasive foreign speices like as with the horny toad's by way of the fire ant.
