You know, if you really want to focus on the big picture, do you really believe that participating in and promoting these types of roundups does anything to bolster your status in the eyes of those that seek to outlaw what you 'love' doing? I'm sure you have been up in arms with the road collecting ban. Do you think when the general public sees stories about rattlesnake roundups that it makes them want to give you the right to road collect back, or to make more laws to prevent you from doing it? Seems like you should be careful about how you would like to have your hobby portrayed in the eyes of the average Joe. Ask yourself if TP&W and legislators in general would be more likely to want to listen to your concerns about reasonable hunting/collecting regulations if they saw you collecting and slaughtering several hundred rattlers, or if they saw a diamondback that you bred giving birth to 15 babies.
