Hunt In: San Jacinto, Falls, Gillespie Co's
Default Close encounter of the copperhead kind.

Decided to hunt yesterday evening in a pop up blind. I am hanging out enjoying not sweating to death and notice a little movement by my feet. Cue the, scream like a little girl sound track, and nearly rip out of the blind like the hulk tearing through a t-shirt video and I managed not to get bit. Now this little dude would not leave. I found a nice long stick and poked and slapped and he just game me the middle finger, or tongue in his case. I finally decided he could have it. Luckily I had a harness with me and went up one of my tree stands to enjoy the rest of the evening. I sent my bride a text and told her that pop up was dead to me and it was time to build an elevated box blind.

Is there anything that works to keep the snakes out of a pop up? I've always looked for snakes, but never had one in the blind, much less slither in while I'm in it. Glad it was me and not one of my kids.
