A couple years back I got spooked when I smelled a big snake while crossing the creek at the main ford. Finally bumped into the snake and he was a huge cottonmouth moccasin. I killed him, mostly because I had smelled him so often but never been able to find him. Taking him out of the ecosystem was bound to shift the local pecking order- snakes are very territorial and not big travellers.
Today Lucie and I made the cam run and I smelled another big snake at the same crossing. Couldn't see him.
