A Gold Mine In Garbage: how to catch more snakes in the field

There's a gold mine in garbage, if you're looking for snakes that is. Not just in any garbage, but in junk heaps and piles of old trash that include things that offer a lot of cover, like metal siding or tin sheeting laying on the ground. Hunt out these kinds of sites, turn these pieces over (carefully) with a strong snake hook, and you'll soon find some scaly friends to brighten your day.
