    Never seen that in the woods. We do have a lot of box turtles on our place.

    Seen it a couple times. This year I found 2 males fighting. One killed the other. Bit his head up till it died, then walked off. Didn't think they were so vicious! Lol

    Back when I turkey hunted the MO Ozarks, I knew a guy who converted smaller box turtle shells that he found into slate turkey calls. They were very distinctive looking and sounded good, too.

    Found this guy the other day. I thought he was dead cause I was tapping his shell with my pole saw and he didn't move. Finally gave me a look and took off under the bank.

    Them boys up there just don't know what they missing. In La if you see one crossing the road you better stop right there and stop traffic because if you pass it up and think you gonna turn around and pull over to get it, someone will have beat you to it. Lol
    Got to open the door and swoop it up and toss it into the bed of the truck all in one motion without ever hitting the brakes!
