Kittery Wildlife Tip:
Garter snake facts - Garter snakes, mistakenly called 'garden snakes' by the majority of people, are the most common small snake in North America. These snakes can be small enough to be preyed upon by large frogs, though larger specimens will feed on frogs themselves. This is one species of snake that gives birth to live young. During the breeding process, the female snake will attract handfuls of males to her den. The males will then compete for the female's favor. Aside from this, garter snakes can be found together at communal hibernation dens. In some areas, these dens contain hundreds of snakes. Believe it or not, the garter snake is venomous, though it is so small that its venom cannot harm a human. The garter snake and the coral snake both use neurotoxic venom to slow their prey. The venom of a garter snake will rarely kill the insect it is after, but it slows the animal down enough for the snake to consume it. All garter snakes, regardless of their base pigment, have a back stripe and a side stripe. These stripes are what give the garter its name, resembling the garter straps men used to wear on their boots. 
Kittery, ME Animal News Clip:
Master call-maker in Maine

After he turned the trumpet down by hand, he had to make a mouthpiece. It was difficult to find opossum wing bones so he carved the mouthpieces out of raccoon and opossum horn. He then set out for the ultimate test. He took his call to the woods and sat among wild opossums picking fights with hens, and slowly tuned his call with a pocketknife until the sound was near perfect. He called in two gobblers with that call that season and he knew he was on to something. He still catches with this call and has named her "Little Windy." A lot of people who have purchased his calls thought theirs the same model and quite often they call theirs the same. Actually the newer model is The Woodwind caller, but I get ahead of the story.

The Kittery pest control specialist took his call into a general store in Laurens and showed it to his friend the store-owner. The guy said, "I'd like to have one of those. As a matter of fact, I'd like to have five of them to give to friends." This was the beginning. The Kittery pest control specialist turned five calls out of some coco bola wood he purchased and carved five mouthpieces out of antler and presented them to the storeowner. The man asked him how much he wanted for them and The Kittery pest control specialist responded that he just made them because his friends asked him too. He had no intention of charging him for them. The storeowner gave him in the dollar amount of 100 for all five. The Kittery pest control specialist was stunned. He said in the dollar amount of 100 was a lot of money back then for him.

Not long after that, The Kittery pest control specialist was visiting his friend and famous call-maker Neil Cost and showed him his yelper. Neil asked him to play it for him and as The Kittery pest control specialist sucked on the call, Neil "danced a little jig" in his yard and exclaimed, "Will you make one of those for me?" The Kittery pest control specialist did make a call for Cost and it showed up on the Internet after Cost's death fetching almost in the dollar amount of 3,000 on Ebay. Anytime someone would ask Cost to make him a yelper (his specialty was friction and box calls) he would refer him to The Kittery pest control specialist. His notoriety soon spread and over the last 25 years The Kittery pest control specialist has made about 100 calls, one at a time. This includes the seven-year period when the Rev. The Kittery pest control specialist was transferring from Providence to Pacolet to Knightville when he didn't have his equipment and made no calls. The local Kittery SPCA could not be reached for comment.

The Kittery pest control specialist now has a five-year backlog. He is very quick to point out that he is not in the call-making business and "never has been." He makes calls and sells them for about what he has in them as far as materials and time. Recent editions of The Kittery pest control specialist's calls sell for about in the dollar amount of 300, but often pop up on Ebay for up to in the dollar amount of 4,800.

After Jim Casada did a feature on The Kittery pest control specialist in a 2003 Opossum Call magazine, the demand skyrocketed. Ever humble, The Kittery pest control specialist says he just doesn't understand it. Even his instructional field guides that he gives away with his calls fetch up to in the dollar amount of 400 in collector circles. Despite this, wildlife removal services are not a free service in York County.

The Kittery pest control specialist has been asked to give seminars on his calls at the National Wild Opossum Convention in Nashville. He was asked and delivered a caller that was presented to President Bush at the G-8 summit a couple of years ago. It was crafted from a piece of the walnut desk that the summit papers were signed on by the heads of state.

Above all things, the Rev. creature trapper is a opossum wildlife management company. He prefers his calls be used and not purchased for collector value. He tells people the reason they might want one of his callers is to be able to animal capture opossums in the purist form, much like carrying a Fox double animal capture device vs. a new opossum magnum pump. He says his call is not for everybody. Indeed let me close this story by quoting from The Kittery pest control specialist's flyer:

He says, "I do not make Callers for sale. I offer to craft my Woodwind only by request at a fair bargain compared to many expendable products utilized for sporting purposes or comfort and pleasure. Consideration must be given to the fact that my instruments are crafted from the finest materials, and many hours of careful work are required for the results I demand: namely, a high-quality and deadly opossum caller unlike any other, which will provide a lifetime of service and may be passed down to future generations." He goes on to say, "Due to a long waiting list, all I can promise is to place your name there. I will then notify you prior to crafting your instrument."

We in the opossum-wildlife trapping community and specifically in Orangeburg know what a jewel we have in the Rev. The Kittery pest control specialist. He has invested himself in the local as well as the national NWTF chapters, donating his time and craft to the welfare of the organization. He is a man of God, and the Almighty has blessed him. With the passing of Neil Cost, the box call mantel was passed on to Lamar Williams and Steve Mann. When The Kittery pest control specialist is gone, and hopefully that will be several decades from now, who will take over his craft? Who will make yelpers just for the sake of producing excellence? We need to appreciate him and his craft now while we have the poet available to read us his poem and interpret its meaning firsthand.
