 A python hunting competition starting on Saturday is drawing hundreds of amateurs armed with clubs, machetes and guns to theFlorida Everglades

The Everglades is not a typical hunting ground. Both the flora and the fauna are dangerous and slogging through saw grass up to you arse in  swamp water takes a lot out of you. This has been a warm winter, so the bugs are a factor too.

I used to paddle a kayak in the 'Glades all the time and never had any problem with bugs. never could figure out why (and didn't care).

I'm honestly shocked that we didn't get a Fark team together for this event. This seems like the kind of stupidity that is right up our alley.

FWC spokeswoman Carli Segelson said the number of registered contestants reached about 500 this week and was growing, with people coming from 32 states.

I read that as "white people coming..."

Probably not too far off.

But the idea of luring weapon-wielding amateurs into the harsh environment of the Everglades has raised some alarms.

Alarms? no. Hopes of some awesome footage to laugh with great gusto at? Oh hell ya.

Not sure why we're being so harsh on the hunters....anything that helps curb an invasive species like that should be appreciated by the granola munching tree hugging variety on Fark. Many native species have all but disappeared in the wake of the pythons in the swamp - deer, foxes, rabbits, birds, etc.

I would be most worried about the cottonmouths, they are territorial. Growing up down there, those scared me the most. My dad had one drop down from a bridge right next to him, the thing went out of it's way to try to attack him for being in its home turf....

Naples resident here. Reminds me of a story from a couple of years ago. This city slicker was lost in the swamp for 5 days, stripped down to his undies (why?), drank swamp water, ate raw catfish, and basically lost his mind...and all the while he was about 3/4 of a mile from one busiest highways in the country. Fully expecting a repeat of this incident to occur with all these wannabe Steve Irwins on the job.

"I was hoping there would be a lot of machetes and not a lot of guns," said Polster, the retired salesman. He said he worries "these idiots will be firing all over the place."

So I guess in his retirement, he became a ninja. Because I would think if you plan to sneak, in dense swamp, up on a 150lb apex predator and dispatch it with a quick machete chop you must be a ninja.

Or an idiot.

Not sure which this guy is.

I am so rooting for the pythons.

Hopefully, the swamp, gators, rattlesnakes, cougars and rabid bobcats will take some of these idjits, too.
 
2013-01-10 03:49:25 PM
On one hand it sucks that they have to do these kinds of hunts. But, what can you do when animals that are not indigenous to the area start eating all the ones that are?

I'm just glad that no one has taken this approach on the non-indigenous humans that just walk in and kill everything that is indigenous. Well, I guess they have tried in the past. But we have better guns.

Where was I? Oh yeah... Don't be an idiot when you buy a snake. Know how big it will get. And don't set the damn thng free when you can't take care of it any longer. Either kill it yourself, of donated it to a zoo.

Man, people are stupid.

I don't understand how this works. Aren't gators aggressive and fast? Do they just lie around while a python snuggles up and starts constricting?

Well, gators are pretty lazy. Their offense is opportunity sneak attack based. And their defense ... well, you saw what happened in the bowl.

justanotherfarkinfarker: Sounds like a good time to me. I've spent some time out there in the swamps.


Me and two others in a 12' rented johnboat (college days) out fishing in the Florida swamps.

Ooh, look, here comes a pretty bird. Oh, cool, it's a heron!
Whoa, it's going to land right next to us!

*blub*
Gator's underwater diving wake rocks the little boat ferociously.

Nothing but silence in the attempted landing, just disappeared on the opposite side of a patch of hydrilla.


And yeah, sawgrass is mean.

I love Burmese pythons. Almost was an owner- it just was the thought that when it grew too big to handle, I'd either have to kill it or find a zoo.
Glad I didn't contribute to this problem, but I'd love to hand-club me a pair of boots.
Hopefully I can find someone that will make some with their catch.

I'm guessing it will be the people from out of state that will get in the most trouble. I'm from Minnesota and I can guarantee I would probably be dead with 20 minutes of entering the swamp.

No why would you wish that?
Sure the majority are most likely going to get their asses kicked by the swamp.
But I would think that would happen from the start, so most of the show will be over rather quickly.
But so what? They choose it, its what they wanted to do. Nobody is marching them out there at gun point.
It is pretty much a good thing that they are trying to do. Perhaps a bit misguided depending on your view point. But still, they're not hurting anybody, except maybe someone by an errant shot and hopefully some snakes.

What model do you have? I've been putting it off for a while, but I am definitely planning on getting a 1911 in 2013. I'd love to get a Kimber TLE.

I also wish that Beretta would come out with a 1911 model, but that's just fantasy.

Auto Ordnance. Used. Bare bones, no bells or whistles. Parkerized. I got (what I consider, given the current market, post-Newtown) a good deal. And yes, I would love to have a Kimber or a Colt but like you said--steep. You might want to look into a Taurus .45 because it  doeshave some bells/whistles and retails (IIRC) for a bit over $700.

This insane plan just might work.

Back in the 60's, growing up in Florida, I rarely saw an alligator, even when camping in the swamps. I could swim in most lakes and rivers without having to carefully check to see if a gator was lurking there.

See, hunters had all but made them extinct. The hides were sold for leather and handbags, babies caught and stuffed for tourists, the meat sold, gator heads were preserved by taxidermy and sold like wild fire.

Then the eco-nuts stepped in and we had to stop killing off this nearly brainless eating machine. Now, we have gator farms, processing the hides and meat, while returning a percentage to the wild that they raised in captivity and they're all over the freakin' place now.

Maybe they'll hunt the snakes to extinction. We lost a lot of morons during gator hunts, so it's kind of a win-win situation when battling the Florida Everglades.
The 'Glade's aint no place for amateurs either. They're hot, nearly 100% humidity, usually full of dark water in which lurk assorted poisonous snakes and the ever nasty gators. It's bug City, with mosquitoes there so thick, especially at night, that they can just about cover you, assorted huge spiders with webs seemingly made from wire and a whole lot more critters with nasty stingers attached.

Water moccasins are poisonous and will chase your arse if you bug them. Under the waters lay layers of mud, rotted branches, snags, bogs and tangles of roots. The saw grass will eat you alive and grows head high at times. It tends to obscure anything nasty you might be walking towards.

We have short tempered wild boar there and snapping turtles big enough to remove your toes -- even through your boots. Camp on a hummock and you need to watch for scorpions, Coral Snakes, Rattlers, the Florida Panther and the ever present gator. It's best if you camp in one of those survival hammocks, the things you sling between two trees, that have a roof, mosquito netting walls and roll down canvass sides.

The heat and humidity is oppressive. The place reeks of rotting vegetable matter. If you don't carry enough fresh water, you had best know how to treat the scummy swamp water and make it safe to drink. I'd suggest you also carry salt tablets because you're going to sweat like crazy.

Many will go in but some might not come back out.

If they go in during mating or nesting season for the gators, things will get a whole lot more entertaining. It's safer to play chicken with a Mac truck than fool with a Momma gator guarding her nest.

My preferred weapon for the swamp? An RPG.
