Dan,
Thanks for the feedback:-) It seems that the bloodlines from Montana (atleast those I am hearing about) are from central Montana and the more mountainous areas there. The "dwarfism" of these bloodlines would make sense as to shortened seasons... Where I live there have been numerous sayi around and over 6 foot. As for patterns and colors? that remains to be seen... I hoping to find a pair or 2 late this season or next season that have strong patterns and colors... if I cannot find them then the project will be on hold till I can.
The last thing I want to do is introduce "weak" snakes...

:
::Here is a question...
::I have seen locality specific bulls/gophers from Kansas, Texas, Canada etc... However none from Montana. There are numerous Bulls and Gophers in the area I live in and throughout eastern Montana. Does anyone work with bloodlines from Montana??
::I am going to be contacting Fish & Game here in Montana to find out about restrictions on capturing wild specimens of Bulls/Gophers. What do you all feel about the capture of wild specimens for future breeding? Ethics and morals type thing.
::Also if noone is working with Montana bloodlines and the laws in Montana allow it I might get (if Lucky) a pair or 2 of wild caught with the intentions of future breeding in a few years, any opinions or thoughts???

::Thank for input,
::Charles

:i had a pair once......the pattern on them was sort of 'scratchy', not real clean and they didn't grow very much either. i didn't particularly care for them myself.
