Hey guys, for obvious reasons, I wanna know if anybody has seen Bulls in Hartley County Texas. I want to collect a pair in or near the town of Hartley TX. I know it sounds narcissistic, but I just thought it would be a cool addition to my locality Bull collection. I stumbled on to it while looking up Andrews County Texas. Anybody see them there?
By strange coincidence I traveled through that country a month ago for the first time in my life, in a general trajectory from Louisiana to Oregon. Timing from Baton Rouge had me in Hartley County just after dark, with lightning flashes to the the west. I saw one snake, several miles to the east of Hartley itself, but my flashlight revealed it to be a Prairie Rattler. No bulls I'm afraid, but on the return ten days later I passed through Hartley at dawn and saw that the area was high plains marked by big, circular plots of irrigated alfalfa, i.e., ideal for bull snakes. The next morning I did see a fresh roadkill bull in adjacent Colorado, but that had nothing to do with Hartley County, nor does anything else regarding my travels,
Late to the discussion, but finding a Bullsnake in that part of the panhandle would be almost unavoidable if you put any time into it at a reasonable time of year. They are pretty common animals in that part of the state.
