It’s turkey season, so I thought a Public Service Announcement was in order.

So here it is: If you’re in snake country, be vigilant in looking for snakes.

Now, this might sound obvious, but as you can see in today’s video from Brent Cary, even a veterean turkey hunter can make a dangerous mistake.

Thankfully, Brent had the presence of mind to look again before he sat down at the base of a tree.



It’s amazing how well-camouflaged the snake is. You can’t blame Brent for not seeing him at first glance. Thank heavens he noticed when he came back.

And the craziest part? Brent had been sitting next to the snake for AN HOUR.

“Why he did not bite me is strictly a blessing from God,” Brent says. We agree.

So be careful out there.
