Frog Hunting

Would a sling shot/wrist rocket be legal for frog hunting?

This is the law: Frogs may be taken with long bow and arrow, including compound bows, crossbows, spears or gigs. Spears or gigs may not have more than five barbs and cannot be used in stocked trout waters. Here is more::It is unlawful to take, catch or kill a reptile or amphibian through the use of firearms, chemicals, explosives, winches, jacks or other devices.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

How would one use a winch or jack to take an amphibian or reptile? Snake hunting?? Must be a back story as to why that was put in the law.

I don't know Brownie, perhaps to move rocks and or logs away from where snakes are hiding or away from den openings.

Woods Walker, is it permisable to use a winch to move a frog away from where you harvested it?

Thanks

You would have to ask the PA F&B Comm. A frog big enough to need a winch to move it, would scare the bejesus out of me, they will eat anything they can get in their mouths.

IDK, I've heard tales of frogs the size of VW's down around Three Mile Island.

I am not allowed to talk about those things at TMI that don't exist!

Hey gang, the way them pythons are growing in the Florida Everglades a winch may be required equipment in a few years. Some C4 too.

For you reptile hunters; any good tips on how to prepare python?

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......
