I had a problem with a seriously bad critter that was nothing but trouble.  Mean as a snake, fast as lightning, I knew it had to go.  Day after day I waited patiently, still as death I hid in my blind waiting for it to show itself, but it was a sneaky, and cunning beast, it smelled a trap.  I had all but given up when one day I detected movement out of the corner of my eye, just a hint at first, then slowly the beast moved into view.  Very slowly, inch by inch, I moved my weapon into position, took carefull aim as I knew I would only get one chance a this shot.  Cocked back the hammer ever so slowly as to make no noise, and shot that f***in mouse with my .32 revolver I keep in my desk out in the tool shed, blew that American Rifleman magazine chewing son of a bitch right to hell.  That thing was using my desk for a toilet, chewing everything, and evading the cat with ease.  If there was anything left of it's head I would have mounted it on the wall.  I hunted it down and killed it, it counts  (?^

I had to replace the strip of plywood from that part of the floor, seems the mouse body failed to stop the little .32 bullet, I went and sprung for some 3/4" plywood and fixed the floor sag while I was at it.  Figured one day the floor might fail to stop my feet from going right through.  No stuffing, not enough skin left.  I should have used shorts in that gun rather than the longs, but I hadn't expected to hunt critters with it while still inside the shed.

We got the copperheads here, good for eating bugs in the garden, I try to leave them be, and for the most part they run away when they feel you coming.  The water moccasins, and especially the rattle snakes are pure mean, they are removed with extream prejudice.  Never stick your hands and feet, or anything else were you can't see because that's were the sneaks live.  We have this guy from Brazil who comes in for parts sometimes, one time he needed a lawnmover part and I sent him to that pile.  Now in Brazil everything kills you, fast, so he afraid of snakes, frogs, and bees, terrified, we got the sort of place were you come to look for all three.  He lifts the lawn tractor hood and there is a snake coiled on top of the engine, probably something harmless, he scream like a little girl, drop the hood and stumbles back into another machine were the bees start coming out.  He gets to runnin, trips over some crap, falls on the ground face to face with a small frog.  Hard to tell from the puddle water he fell in, but I think he pissed himself, and it was five months before we saw him again.
