Every year our pond becomes invaded by snapping turtles that eat the fish and frogs from the ponds. A few weeks ago we found where some varmint had found several turtle egg nests on the farm on the side of a mountain spring that runs through the farm to Sinking Creek.
You can see the shells along the side of the hole and below it.
But with that being said we don’t like having them in our pond so we set “trot lines” (heavy nylon thread with a huge hook on the end ) to catch the beast that eat our frogs and fish. We caught one night before last and our dinner that night was chicken fried turtle. fried potatoes, cantaloupe and asparagus. So good!!!
