For decades I’ve looked forward to when the water warms up, and snapping turtles are on the move. It means it’s time to set out turtle lines and nets with hopes of catching a few. I always bring home just enough to get me through the year until it is time to catch more.

I always hear be careful when going to pick up a snapping turtle. A snapping turtle can be very dangerous if he happens to get a hold of you. But, being cautious, and knowing how to pick up a turtle properly you will remain safe, and the turtle will not feel discomfort.
