Don't let Ranger go in after that turtle either. I don't think Mrs. Ranger could put up with him underfoot again so soon!

Or just have another excuse for hanging out by the watyer with a beer. "Going turtle hunting, gang. Not sure when I'll be back!"

Good point! Ranger, I'm thinking you shouldn't have beer and firearms at the same time. A grinder without beer wasn't such a good idea.

Steve thought he had it yesterday afternoon when he found the line on the opposite side of the pond. It's a small pond so a 20' move is very noticeable. When he came back up to the house get stuff I tagged along for the laugh...I mean experience. It was a 15" hornpout that made a tangled mess of everything. We didn't think we had any that large left. Nothing this morning. The drama goes on!

This is a good point. Is this posted as of yet on the back of a beer can?
Do not mix beer with fire arms.

This shows how steep the banks of the pond are. Plants fill in every summer and provide habitat for the baby fish when the fall rains raise the water level. By spring most plants are gone. When the pond is full it's 15' on the shallow end, 22' on the deep end. The only thing on the bottom is a boulder too large to be taken out by the backhoe (Case 720).


This is not the snapping turtle we're trying to catch. It's a bull frog we caught as a pollywog in a bait trap from another pond three winters ago. This is the first year those pollywogs are old enough to breed. Bull frogs are pollywogs for two years! They were successful. We've seen a couple of huge pollywogs this summer.



Also not a snapping turtle. A 15" hornpout, aka brown bullhead, aka supper.


And again, NOT the snapping turtle. This is one of our rainbow trout skimming the surface to eat the floating food we toss in for them.


Maybe tonight we'll have turtle pics!

I've been told a neighbor would like to catch it and eat it. She wants to keep the shell though, and I'm not willing to part with the shell. It has killed too many of our trout to give up a souvenir we can use for educational purposes.
