Do you all see many box Turtles ? While I was in KY last weekend we ran across alot of them . It got me thinking how I don't see them in my Ohio travels as often as I used too . In fact , I couldn't remember the last time I saw one . Perhaps it's just the area of the state I am in now .

I see a few while shed hunting Jake. They seem to be on the move with a purpose rather just bumfuggin along. Wonder if it’s mating season?!? Cool pic too.

I seem to find more shells then turtles. Maybe have something to do with these late winters? Seems the last few years winter hasn’t started till January and has stayed later.

Nine times out of ten times I hear them hiss before I see them, and to this Southern boy it is ingrained in my bones that a hiss means water moccasin, close. I about shit my pants every time

Never seen one here in Crawford county. Put in plenty of miles in the woods over the years and have yet to find one up here. Plenty of snappers, soft shell, and pond sliders.
