Hey, fellow prospectors:
I wanted to get your opinions on this, which might be a touchy subject.
Take a gun along with you?
My thinking is this... if you're going to take a gun with you to
save yourself from human scoundrels, then I think that is acceptable.
However, if you're going to use it on snakes and such,
then I think you should stay home. The creatures are in their own environment
and they don't want to bother you at all. I bet a good sized nugget that in turn the creatures would rather you stay away from them. Besides, most creatures hear you way before you get near them. Then they scurry away as fast as they can.
Now, I know what you're thinking! You're saying. "Hey, what about snakes??"
I think snakes are not there to hunt you down and bite you! In fact, most deadly snakes will warn you if you tread too close.
In that case, you would be smart to move along. Again, I believe I know you're thinking... what if those slithering creatures are in my spot? Where I want to be? Can't be in the same dang place, can we?
Now here is my simple answer to that: don't shoot the
creature. Just try to come to a non-violent conclusion of co-existence.
Like, let them know you're there with a long long stick or something. Say, a really good weapon is a nice, long walking cane.
Be careful out there! And always remember that they were there first!
Please leave a comment good or bad, cuz I would like to use them on my new website FAQ.
