You found Nell's hidey place.

Wow! That was something really cool to see... I bet not many people have seen anything like that.

My profile picture is the reason I found this forum. I killed the timber Rattler and possibly saved my dad from being bitten while checking a trail cam. Dad wanted to hang the snake in a tree (to make it rain) two days later I came back to check the camera again and found a king snake eating the rattlesnake suspended in the air. I have seen snakes eat other snakes but this was a new one for me.

I said he has caught a snake and pulled out my phone to take some pics. As I was standing there, I quickly realized something was wrong when the hawk tipped over. It was then I could see the snake, which looked to be a Southern Black Racer, wrapped around the hawk's neck. I knew I had to try and help the poor thing, so I cautiously approached with a dead pine limb and wiggled it under the part of the snake that was wrapped around the neck. He was wrapped so tight, I actually lifted the hawk off the ground 2 or 3 times. I kept on trying as the hawk just laid there motionless. Finally, the snake had enough and unwrapped himself from the hawk. The hawk laid there stunned for several seconds before getting up. He then flew up on a limb and stared at me for a second or two before flying away.

The hawk never made a sound at all. Makes you wonder how often something like this happens. Just glad I was there to help him out. I bet he's glad too!

Images are in order. First image is a crop to better show the snake. You can't see the snake around the Hawk's neck in every image, but he is there. The last image is after the snake unwrapped and left.














I bet that hawk was the one who started that fight and the snake was just finishing it!

Back in the early 80's I started hunting our family land down in Pine Mountain. I was sitting in the tree right at daybreak and I hear lions roaring, real lions. Made my skin crawl. It turns out the Wild Animal Safari that keeps lions among other things is just a couple of miles away and when the lions roar at daybreak that means it's feeding time.

Another time I was sitting in a tree at daybreak and there was heavy fog. Fog so thick I could barely see the ground at the base of my tree. I catch movement on the ground and look down. This big brown thing waddles up out of the fog, stops at the base of my tree, sniffs around, rises up on its' hind legs and sniffs my tree then waddles on off into the fog. First time I had ever seen a bear in the wild up close and personal.

Back in the late 70's me and a buddy were walking in to our stands on a logging road with more of that thick fog. A coyote ran across the road right in front of us. I had never heard of coyotes in Georgia back then and neither had my buddy. We both looked at each other with that wide eyed "What the....!!!!" look on our faces and asked each other "Did you see that? What was it?"

Thick fog bugs me to this day.

Not hunting, was out on an overnight deep water grouper trip in the gulf. Had been deep dropping 400’ all day and was chugging in to 200’ to anchor up for the night. We were around 120 miles off shore and noticed an abnormally bright amber light about 20 degrees off the horizon. It was blinking in sequence from right to left then all lit up at once. Then it dimmed into a small light and shot off faster than anything I’ve seen in the sky. Don’t know what it was but gave me a strange feeling. I’ve spent many nights offshore and that’s the only time I’ve seen anything odd. Later that week there were reports from the oil rigs in Louisiana of a UFO from the same afternoon and night. I’m not saying that’s what we saw but it was definitely an unknown object.

I was once hunting in a stand up in Tallulah Falls when I heard a loud crash and looked and there was about a 300lb black bear running as fast as he could about 40 yards in front of me. I threw my gun up and was tempted to shoot but I was a good 60 minute walk back on Gov land. But just as soon as I put my gun down 2 squirrels fell out of the tree right in front of me, they were about 25 to 30 foot up. I've seen a squirrel or two fall in my time but the circumstances just made it funny. I guess the bear scared them to death, I don't know.

Another time I was in the wood and seen a wild hawg being chased by a little Jack Russel, then when they came back by the hawg was chasing the dog so I eased the Jack Russel's stress level by putting a 7mm-08 in the hawg.

Also one time had a coon climb my tree while I was hunting. Scared the crap out of me when I felt the tree vibrating, thought a bear was on it lol. In this same spot also had a possum above me one time before day light, scared me when I looked up with my flashlight and he was just staring at me.
