Tales & Trails by Melissa Coakley

You never know what you are going to find in the Cane fields and this is one of the most alluring aspects of hunting there.  I often find snakes loaded with scars from controlled burn.  Last year Bill and I found one badly burned yellow rat snake that seemed to be doing quite well despite the burns.  One of the worst finds was a huge pile of dead frogs – there had to be several hundred – all missing their legs.  I have also found piles of dead fish and other trash and debris of just about every imaginable type.  The sugar cane fields seem to be a magnet for strange garbage – everything from beds to boats.
