One shot- one less threat to my babies!
After what Ollie went thru after her snake bites, and you watching her decline and making the decision to euthanize, I have no problem with you getting rid of the snake, especially the kinds you get. Hopefully Henry will ward off other snakes by hanging on the fence faceless. Good job guys!
I rember it was very sad
I totally agree! I was swimming and a snake was swimming side by side with me, close to my face! I’m not really a fan of snakes sinse then…
Ollie is missed. But if you can't remove a snake humanely then you're left with the disposal action. Think if a child besides the animal's getting bit. Safety first
Agreed! I remembered when it happened. It was heartbreaking!
Good shot Lester
Hey Lester and Jake
Looks like a red belly water snake but I'm not a expert 😉
Just bust out the 12ga and blow them clean out of the water 💧
Good job Lester
Snakes ain't. Good not around other animals and children. Keep snakes away from home
I agree you have to do what you have to do !
Like I said kill anything that kills your babies if it is a threat to your animals it’s gotta go
You have to do what you have to do
When I was young I help my Grandfather kill the snakes in his rice fields
You have to do what you have to do to take care of yourself and your babies
I happy you where able to protect your babies and not have repeat of olie
Make sure the snakes head is still not in the water. Great shot and good job. Don't worry about the haters, your family, friends and animals come 1st and need protection. Snakes can travel a long way. I am from Australia and believe if a snake catch is going to take awhile to get to me or cost me money and the snake is going kill my kids, animals, wildlife and myself and it's on my land then it's a dead snake. Only way for me to kill it now I am out of the service's is with a shovel so yep up close and personal, cause we have gun laws here and I haven't gone and got mine yet.
Great shot, Lester! Keep on keepin' on!
So glad you got the snake, you need your babies safe. Congratulations on getting it.
How to repel snakes: There are many scents snakes don't like including cinnamon, cloves, onions, garlic, and lime. You can use oils or sprays containing these fragrances or grow plants featuring these scents. Vinegar is effective at repelling snakes near bodies of water including swimming pools. Pour white vinegar around the perimeter of any body of water for a natural snake repellent. ... Snakes don't like the smell of the mixture and the fumes are also itchy on their skin.
@Kate P The vinegar could be placed where there is no grass, near the shoreline.. It would soak into the ground so animals wouldn't be digesting it. The other scents could be placed in bags or sprayed higher up in the trees away from the goats. I chose the idea because it is a natural solution and thought it might help to ease Lester's fears and keep the babies safe. Thank you.
Yeah the vinegar is a good idea. However, I don’t think growing any of those plants will stand a chance. The goats eat everything and anything that grows green. But the vinegar may work.
I don't have any Mercy for snakes
Glad you got him Lester one got per Okie in the face and we lost her over the bite in the face Great Shot Lester so proud of you for defending your babies
This is the reality of having a farm. Anyone offended should get real.
Well as you said you were protecting the babies 😉👍 I agree it was the right thing to do 🤗
Water moccasin poison
Good job guys! So proud of you for getting these water moccasins out of your pond. Oldy got bitten by one and no other pigs needs to be bitten by water moccasins. Big Trudy or Tiny Tim of even Little baby girl Lola and the other babies that hang around the pond. I love you guys and I glad that you and shirtless Jake took care of it.
Good job kill all poison snakes on your property I hate poisonous snakes
You and Jake crack me up! Thank you Jake for the gun guide protection. Lester good shot 🔫
I agree it was a very good shot and the video was funny but unnecessary if the snake was not poisonous there would be no reason to kill it because it was harmless. It was just another living being trying to live out it's life in a safe environment which in his case found out he was not safe. I just think snakes should be identified better or have someone come out and relocate the snake somewhere away from the farm where they can live freely also
Do what u got do to keep the bbys safe
Personally I am glad you are such a good shot and THAT snake is a goner!!!! 👍☝🏻😀
Glad you got 'em!!!
Glad you got 'em
Rat snake pointy tail means non venom
YEA! ANOTHER DEAD SNAKE. I listened to one guy say don't be fooled the head doesn't always mean it is poisonous or non poisonous AND he said since one snake is there there will be another. Thought I would pass this along. YEA ANOTHER DEAD SNAKE.
LESTER!!!!!! Get a bait net and get that snake head out of the pond and throw that snake away so the goats will not eat it and QUIT worrying about what people think about that darn snake. Stand up for what you believe in by not addressing what people may think. We get tired of hearing you do that. Just do what you do and what you know is right for your animal and just stop . Someone may step on that head in the pond.
Great shot Lester. I don't blame you for shooting that snake to protect your babies
If that picture is correct, it’s a broad band watersnake.
I surely wouldn't call that small
Lmao 🤣🤣🤣 kill them all ( snakes 🐍)
Dead eye shot vs one handed on the move both impressive
Sometimes you just gotta do what's necessary to keep you and your family safe ❤ Ps and the animals are a part of your beautiful family, Good job!! God blesses those who bless His animals,
The snake was trespassing in your lake. So you did what you had to do to protect your herds. To those who are going to complain about the kill. Farmers live a hard truth they take other lives in their hands. Each life is like having another kid to care for. Each snake is capable of killing ever animal and human on their farm. So by killing one snake he is saving so many lives plus he is protecting pawpaw's and sister Kim's animals and family. Do not get me wrong I am prolife when it comes to animals and snakes but if killing one snake means saving that many lives then the snake has to go. I know it is a hard truth to to understand
I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND BUT Being scared of snakes myself .. I decided to educate myself. Lester & Jake , WOULD IT HURT YOU TO EDUCATE YOURSELFS? PLEASE!!! YOU guys are so loving & caring. Please educate yourself then educate us ! I know you really don't want to kill & display a being that just wants to survive! 💗 Please do it on behalf of my Tommy dog 🐕 , the love of my life . We had to let him go with God today. One of the hardest days of my life! I really do love you guys & your family! 1) facebook.com/groups/22137638452/?ref=share 2) facebook.com/groups/SnakeRemovalAndRelocationNationwideNetwork/?ref=share 3) facebook.com/groups/national.snakebite.support/?ref=share 4) facebook.com/groups/snakeED/?ref=share

I'm glad you posted this video it's a part of farm 🚜life protecting the babies that's all it matters🐕🐱🐴🐃🐄🐮🐗🐖🐷🐄🐑🐏🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐐🐰🐾🐾🐾🦚🦅🦆🦢🪶🪶🪶🪶🪶🪶🐸🐢🐟🐌🐸🐥🐤🐣🐓🐔🦃🐿🐈⬛🐕🐶
Great shot, it was a one shot humane kill
:) Nice shot Lester!
Hell of a shot Lester , and with a 22 … wow
Great Shot Lester keep everyone Safe!❤️❤️
Looks like a juvenile water moccasin.
Awesome shot! Get rid of the snakes.
Thank you guys for riding the pond of snakes 🐍that just scares 😨the crap right outta me for them babies I remember poor olie went through and that was devastating thank you for making the pond a safe place to live
As long as nobody talked you into a "snipe" hunt!
Great shot! Thank you for protecting your babies.
So the pupils in the eyes just tell ya if the snake is nocturnal or daytime snakes. Search snake discovery for some cool videos that help explain the difference between the venomous and not. I get why you did it. You have to protect the babies.
Awesome results! (I won’t say the S word)
Thought maybe you had to shoot a coyote. I would scoop the head out of the water away from the animals. Stay safe & take care of you all. Thanks for sharing eh :))
Great shot. Take care of the babies 💞💞
You did what you had to do to protect your babies.
Just a question is the poison now in the water
No it was just a water snake non venomous
I hate guns but good on you lester . To save family and animals good on you lol.
You 2 are too funny! Great job I would’ve done the same thing. I live in the city and I have seen a coyote in my back yard but luckily my dogs weren’t outside but if I needed to shoot I would’ve done it too. To protect my babies. I have read that if you hang the dead predator over the fence you’re sending a message to the rest of the predators. 🐍
That's a broad banded water snake 🐍
Great video. Sweet Ollie says thank you dad from above. I say thank you Lester. You do not need to lose anymore babies from a snake bite.
Protect those babies. Good job Lester.
That looks like a broad banded watersnake,awesome shot lester!!! So glad you did what you had to do,I’ve seen you and jake lay traps to catch turtles that invaded your pond and you rehome them back in the wild,sadly this can’t be done with watersnakes so this is the reality of it,you have a job to do to care for,love on,and protect those babies,their lives are in your hands so of course it’s not what anyone’s wants to do but it must be done regardless,you couldn’t allow an watersnake of unknown species to free roam around your home and babies,it’s another disaster waiting to happen and after everything poor olie went through there’s no way you’d allow that to happen again. Again though awesome shot! 👏🤩💯🐍☠️💪 Snakes be travelling up the driveway and say “there’s headless Hank,yup im not staying here if ima survive” 😂 see what I did there 😉😂 so glad you finally caught and got it,at least no one’s going to ask “hey lester whatever happened to that watersnake you filmed in your pond” 😂 At least yall can sleep safely again for a while. God bless yall 🙏
Nice shot Lester snakes have to go. It the way it is protecting your farm is not wrong it is a have to do. I had to shoot a bear that wondered into my chicken pen. The way life goes in a farm
Should have title this , “I shot a snake’s head off!”
Great shot, Lester
SNAKE LIVES MATTER
So happy to know your babies can enjoy the pond without those danger noodles in there.
It was a TX Glossy snake, not Venomous.
Great shot Lester! This is for Ollie and her pain and suffering. No one should ragtag you for protecting your babies. Any country boy or girl would have done the same thing.
Oh. I'm so glad you got the snake. Good eye Jake. Great shot Lester. You gotta do what ya gotta do to protect your animals and anyone going near the pond. From you guys to the children who play next door, protect and defend. ❤🙏
Coral snakes are the most colorful of the venomous snakes, with bands of red, yellow, white, and black wrapping around their bodies. The colors are the focus of a popular rhyme that's used to distinguish them from similar-looking species, particularly the harmless king snake: “Red touching yellow will kill a fellow.🐍🐐🦙🐃🐂🐂🐎🐎🦃🦆🦢🐖🐖🐖🧔🧔
Lester I watch all the videos and your Dad you guys are my hero I love it we kill all snakes in Missouri
Great shot Lester. Poor Ollie, I'm glad you got that snake 🐍. Good job 👍🏾
Definitely need to keep the babies safe from snakes. Doing a great job 👍 It's actually illegal to kill snakes here in Australia. You have to leave them be or pay a registered snake catcher to come relocate it for you. 🐍
Glad u killed that snake he could get in your barns or house proud of u
I don't blame you Lester.
When Jake was bent over to show you the snake I saw Brinlee. Now we see where she got it, he he he he
Good bye s are.
You sure are a good shot Lester.!
Real good shot, Lester! It’s sad, but safer for the babies.
Lester's voice over lol 😆😂🤣 I'm not offended at all... guns are not the enemy. They are meant for protection. I'm not opposed to saving my family if I have to 🤷🏼♀️ Great job taking out that snake, nice shot Lester! 👌
Way to GO!! I would have shot it or had someone shoot that thing too. You have to look out for the babies, the kids, and yourselves. A snake will not think twice before biting you or any of the above. Kudos to Jake and Lester (great shot Lester). 👍👍
Protect the farm babies and not only the farm babies your own children who go out on your land at all costs. Who cares if someone gets upset you’re doing what a man who loves his family and animal babies is supposed to do ❤️🥰
you did mighty good today Lester 😉👍🏼💜
Broad-banded Water Snake. They prefer heavily vegetated lakes and ponds, though both are occassionally seen along canals and streams. They eat fish and frogs. So u may get more around. They are none venomous.
Lester excellent shot, glad to see the possible predator terminated. In respect, firearms may be a farm tool.
Tango down. Peace restored in Morrow Bay. Well done, Lester.
Not only your animals you younger sons and the nieces!
