Observed Individual(s) in Hand or Close Range
While returning from s grouse lek location on 4/23/11 observed sink hole with sheds that appeared to be other than rattlesnake - returned on 5/12 and observed gopher snakes - see photos. One unlucky individual that had already left the den managed to get crushed on the two-track due south by a truck hauling water to the tank due east (so actually 11 individuals seen).
