troy,

thanks for sharing! i might just try the fresh salmon trick, if i have the need this season. i have a couple girls that will hopefully breed! excited to possibly produce a few hogs of my own i downsized my collection and am down to just my dozen hogs for snakes. they are awesome though!

it does seem to be a much better idea to use fresh fish then canned with all the preservatives. i have had numerous guys tell me canned tuna, salmon, or spam juice. never understood why canned, but evidently is works in some cases. in the wild, i don't see why they wouldn't eat a small fish if given the chance. i have found a southern chowing down on a frog on the side of a pond. why not a fish if it could grab it? i think it's pretty narrow minded to not even entertain the idea.

i live in florida, so i have a year round supply or fresh frogs and lizards. i still like to hear about the other things that have worked successfully for others though. personally, i am a little nervous about using wild frog and lizard scent because of possible parasites.

thanks for sharing... great topic!

jonathan
