Default Snake Breaking Clinic--May 6th

Heads up! This will be Dr. Hugh "Bud" Calderwood's last clinic. He is retiring from the 'bidness. It will be at Forest City Gun Club, Savannah. Once we get closer to May, I will make another announcement with the particulars. Save the date. Gil

Have you ever ask him how many dogs he does in a average year? He did a clinic at Dog Pond kennels around the corner from the house this spring. Years ago I had a 6 foot rattler that we named Leroy Brown that I kept in a buried 55 gallon drum on my farm that we used for snake breaking our dogs. Would rather pay now. My snake handling days are over. Hope he enjoys his retirement.

Probably a good move to have ended your snake handling days, especially Leroy Brown who could easily kill a junkyard dog. Gil

And it's bad, bad Leroy Brown
The baddest snake in the whole CensoredCensoredCensoredCensoreded town
Badder than old King Kong
And meaner than a junkyard dog

Leroy was pardoned after staying with me for a while. Released unharmed a long way from the house in a undisclosed area way down in a national forest in a place that has the greatest population of eastern diamondbacks in the world.

Years ago, Nat Geo's Explorer did a feature on EDB's being studied at Little St. Simons Island. A scientist had implanted telemetry devices in the snakes and would track them with a Yagi directional antenna. The island was loaded with huge EDB's. Gil

The shortest job I may ever have had was working a summer gig in college days in the early 80's tracking EDR's on Tall Timbers with Dr. Means. Made it about 3 weeks. There is a great documentary on Nationsl Geographic about Dr. Means and his life with Rattlesnakes. Good footage of him and I believe his son on Alligator Point fla finding snakes in the sanctuary there.

For those familiar with the location, is there anywhere to work a dog before/after their turn?

There are several ponds nearby. Drew Ambos is a member and he oversees the clinic. He can direct you to a location that may be suitable. What type of dog work do you mean? Gil

You'll have plenty of room for that. Last year Timberdoodle brought down his 5 Cockers for the clinic. I believe he traveled the farthest. Gil
