    Do you ever keep the snakes that you find? I’d like to get some of the Crotalus viridis nuntia. never been on a snake hunt before maybe i can join you next time?

  2. Bryan says:

    I have indeed collected a few, but almost all of them are left exactly where found after I get some photos. C. viridis shouldn’t be difficult to find if you look anywhere in the N.E. part of the state, but make sure you have both an AZ hunting license and permission from the Navajo nation, if you will be in that territory.
