    What an snake hunter with a club may look like
  • The Everglades is not a typical hunting ground. Both the flora and the fauna are dangerous and slogging through saw grass up to you arse in  swamp water takes a lot out of you. This has been a warm winter, so the bugs are a factor too.
  • I got one, I got one!

    *nggggggghhhh*

    One gots me!  One gots me!  Little help?
  • I'm really looking forward to Sunday's aftermath reports. We're gonna wear the pixels off the Florida tag! :-)

    never realized how much their snake drawing skills resembled mr burns and kearney before :P

    I used to paddle a kayak in the 'Glades all the time and never had any problem with bugs. never could figure out why (and didn't care).

    /Sawgrass hurts, lemme tell ya
  • Look at them, wasting all that good meat.
  • Yeah...I got your python **crotchgrab** RIGHT HERE!

    Tampa has 24 inch pythons.
  • God... 500 people enter... 50 leave... It ain't the pythons you need to worry about skippy.. You tenderfeet are gonna get yo' ass chomped by a gator, bit by a moccasin, or cut yourself to ribbons on sawgrass..

    Please Darwin and God.. Rain fire down upon these dumbasses...

    If ever there was an excuse for a reality TV show it has to be this.
  • I'm honestly shocked that we didn't get a Fark team together for this event. This seems like the kind of stupidity that is right up our alley.
  • FWC spokeswoman Carli Segelson said the number of registered contestants reached about 500 this week and was growing, with people coming from 32 states.

    I read that as "white people coming..."

    Probably not too far off.
  • But the idea of luring weapon-wielding amateurs into the harsh environment of the Everglades has raised some alarms.

    Alarms? no. Hopes of some awesome footage to laugh with great gusto at? Oh hell ya.

    /cant laugh too hard, we have had a rattlesnake roundup every year in Texas since 1958.
  • Eddie Bauer probably has one heck of a python hunter clothing line sale this week.....
  • Not sure why we're being so harsh on the hunters....anything that helps curb an invasive species like that should be appreciated by the granola munching tree hugging variety on Fark. Many native species have all but disappeared in the wake of the pythons in the swamp - deer, foxes, rabbits, birds, etc.
  • Probably not as good as a great cat massacre.
  • I would be most worried about the cottonmouths, they are territorial. Growing up down there, those scared me the most. My dad had one drop down from a bridge right next to him, the thing went out of it's way to try to attack him for being in its home turf....

    /no way I would do it
  • I'm not going to waste my time arguing with a man who's lining up to be a hot lunch.

    As long as you go with a Hattori Hanzo katana through their entire yakuza gang, things wouldn't be that tough...

    You obviously don't get the National Geographic channel.

    Now they will know why they are afraid of the dark. Now they will learn why they fear the night."
