i couldnt wait to go dig this labor day wknd, we had gotten permission to dig a 400+ acre land that hadnt been dug in over 25 years, but it was hard finding good patches. found many 4 prongs like in this pic along with this copperhead. now, i dont like to kill snakes in the wild, but this one had to go per land owners request...to be honest im more afraid of black racers than the poisonous ones, black racers are creepy..they will stare you down while acting like a cobra when startled.
i found this pop a top beer can near a patch. i took 4 biggest root and sealed it up in a qrt mason jar filled with moonshine from a good friend i know.
cant wait to go again

Down in a hollor....son
