Oldmanelrod, I have looked upon that area where the picture was made a time or two or three :)

David Darnell,
You live in a very nice area. As you and I know there are lots of post card areas there.

I have been told by a Nashville bud that Cottonmouths are around Nashville with Spotted Owl Gore's warm spell.

I had a 3 foot Copperhead couple of weeks back in road near my house, that was the maddest snake I ever saw, was trying to bite any and everything. I've spent most of my off time in my life outside, and only ran into 3 rattlers

I was kicking around online and found this .pdf, with some interesting information on cottonmouths and how to identify them.

http://www.tennsnakes.org/Cottonmouth%20Brochure.pdf

The range map in the bottom corner of the first page caught my eye.  It lists an "introduced population" of cottonmouths in Coffee County.  WTF?  Who goes around stocking cottonmouths?  ???

bd
From 1990-1997 I lived in Tullahoma. I became friends one of the local TWRA Biologist and one day he mentioned that there was a population of water moccasins that had been introduced by a property owner on a small lake bear or in the Little Duck River near Old Stone Fort State Park. So there must be a few in that area.

Very nice.  I always like that view, and the one dropping into Grassy Cove.

Yes sir it is hard to beat.

Beautiful.
My drive down Snows Hill this morning was beautiful too. The clear cool air with no atmospheric haze made every thing in sight just pop. Even on my way to the car this morning I couldn't help but notice how nice it was. Birds singing, breeze blowing through the poplars, big bright white puffy clouds rolling across the ridge. I had to stop for a min and just take it in. Some days it feels like I live in paradise.
Nature is a gift from God that we can all enjoy for free and it was hard to beat when I took the pic.

You aren't going to like this  ;D, but it is my understanding (limited) that boat registrations fees (partially) go towards cleaning up gas from marinas. Since non-powered boats don't use gas, they don't need to pay boat registration.  Electric only boats are the ones that get screwed.  8)   Launch passes are used at some state ramps (like PA) but I doubt anything will be done on the Caney.

What really needs to be done is a capacity study.  Then set reasonable limits based on the carrying capacity; For example--so many commercial rentals, so many private kayak/canoes, so many drift boats etc.  It should also be done per hour, or restrict launch times (commercial launch only for 9-11 am or something). Once limit is hit, no more for the day.

There are 50 times more paddle craft on the waters than motor boats now. Why not pass this on to them? You know the ones who dump thousands of them into our public rivers everyday for profit....
