I think this is a pretty lame way of justifying what you do. Your comparisons in collecting snakes for a hobby and collecting snakes with the purpose of killing them is weak. Sure animals collected for personal collections don't always fair well and die but not in mass quantities like the hundreds of snakes you guys collect to kill. Making the comparison to commercial collectors is fine. Most of us do not agree with commercial collecting either so that doesnt help your case. One rattlesnake hunter catches far more rattlesnakes in one outing than all the alterna collected in a whole season. Most of us work with these animals because we care about them and enjoy keeping them. You guys collect and kill solely for profit. The small towns known for rattlesnake roundups could find other ways to support their economy. As for landowners who don't want snakes on their property.. i suggest they move to the city and out of the country. Those people kill me just like people buying houses built in the Everglades then want to complain when they come across an alligator or snake. Absolutely ridiculous. I don't think your views or going to win over anyone here.

Chris
