I was hunting 2050 in S.Texas(w/yet another rookie).
We had stopped to pick up a 4 foot Desert Kingsnake.
As we were stopped on the side of the road I was trying to
bag the animal when a sheriifs vehicle races up to us locks
it up and 2 deputys fly out. The first deputy is a woman
and she comes up to me, oblivious to the fact that I have
a 4 foot snake in my hands. "What are you guys doing out here
at this time of nite?" she asks... "snake collecting"
I reply..."can I see some ID?" .... I don't have a free hand
so instinctively I thrust the desert king into her hands and say
"here hold this..." Its at this point she realizes that
I have just put a large snake in her hands...."Never mind"
says the deputy, handing me my snake back....
Never had her stop me again....
