In Memory Of My Departed Sister

Beware of Lurking Hazards in your blind.

I believe this story & Information are definetly worth writing about. It happend to my wife Carol while hunting from one of our groundblinds, during the archery season this October 2009 season. We had set up groundblinds at various locations on Our property , just prior to the bow season. While this should be the last thing you have to worry about it should be on your mind anytime you set up & leave a groundblind in place and leave it. Carol was out hunting from this particular blind in the morning. while seeing no deer that morning , she knew deer were frequenting the area as we had seen them on our trail cams. She decided this day to hunt the same stand in the afternoon & give it another go . What happened next was not planned . After a couple hours in the stand she heard a hissing noise she thought that her pepsi bottle was leaking air so she pulled it out of her pocket & tightend the cap on it & returned it to her jacket pocket. A few seconds later she heard the same noise, again thinking it was her pepsi bottle.
Right then she felt something moving on her waist near her back  she then heard the hissing again. She stood up to look at her back & see what was there !!! & Saw that a tail nearly a 1/2 a foot long  was hanging out of the back of her coat!!! she immediatly grabbed hold of it realizing it was a snake hissing at that point  she grabbed it & threw it out the window of the blind .
Yes folks it was not the Pepsi bottle at all making the hissing noise, it was a Copperhead snake about 2 foot long & it had found its way up the chair & in between the back of her hunting coat between her hunting pants . She kept a level head comming from the land of poisoness snakes she grabbed it & flung it out of the blind window. Moral of the story? Well even though it was November & the snakes are supposed to be hibernating , The Weather was near the high 50's low 60's & snakes are just back out when the weather is that nice. So I thought it would be wise for me to write about this because if you set up & plan on leaving your blinds up!!! YOU should be very aware when the weather is nice snakes can & will appear at some point. Carol is a snake Person unlike myself  (he-he), she having owned  pythons etc. was able to keep a level head & deal with the snake , However Copperheads are poisoness & it could have possibly turned bad if she had got  bitten . So just a reminder for your own safety take your flashlight & inspect your blind before entering & at various times throught the day while hunting,, just to be safe. Also when building groundblinds out of wood/ sticks etc etc. snakes hide in wood piles etc. as we also found out, by finding a couple of shed snake skins in our wood pile we cut for firewood. If this story helps even one person , Its well worth the write just for safety sake.
 Take care until nextime
May You Have A Great Safe Hunt !!!
          May GOD Bless
