About 40 feet from the base of Rockfellow on the way to DoFP this guy took a shot at me from a shallow dugout under a rock only making contact with my pant leg as i pulled away. After cleaning out my drawers I moved him off the trail in case anyone was to come up soon after us. We also removed the rock from the trail that provided the ambush site for this critter.

Wow, that's one hell of an encounter. Now I have to go clean my drawers.

This was in December?!

Bizarre markings. It reminds me of one of my dad's ties back in the '70's. The buzz alone is always more of a thrill than I need, having it nick your pants from under a rock.....yeeeesh.
