I have always referred these particular turtles as loggerhead but some do call them snapping turtles as well....

Loggerheads are sea turtles >> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...Sea_Turtle

Snapping turtles are freshwater >> en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...ing_turtle

Starting to sound like D, aren't I ... Shocked

That loggerhead must have been running around a fair bit to corner your bassett hound

Might want to make sure to use the term "snapping turtle"....as far as I know Federal law protects loggerheads. Sure hate for you to do time on a bum rap!!! The PETA idiots are liable to try to make the case of "well, he called it a loggerhead." Shocked

You know I hear when you catch these your supposed to let them soak in a tub of clean water for a couple of days to get the taste to clean up.

Still haven't caught one though, but everytime I go to a place to fish where I can legally catch them and they are there believe me I try to get them. Laughing

snapping turtle is pretty good eatin, not so easy to clean. A buddy of mine back in PA used to catch hundreds of them and sell them to fancy restaurants in NYC. Float an airtight bottle in a pond with a large hook hanging down a few feet with chicken liver or beef spleen on it. Works pretty well. Snapping turtles are very hard on geese and ducks.

Deer Sniper,

There is nothing wrong with getting yourself a turtle, unless I'm missing something ?? Confused

You have some good eating there and if you let me know when dinner is served I might be on my way to Texas to see kin and could stop in and help you get rid of the evidence!!!! Laughing
Now, I am wondering if someone can tell me why I am seeing the front end of my barrel through my scope. Gun is zeroed in but this is a whale of a distraction!!! Confused
