Check out this video. I usually find a couple every year. I also have found quite a few empty shells, which makes me wonder what is going on?

This is a very interesting study. BTW I have a couple of Boykins, and they are awesome little dogs.

Very interesting I wonder why I never see them in Knox county where I live but see plenty in hocking and vinton counties where I hunt. But you have them as far north as New Jersey and New York

I saw 2 this past weekend down at camp. One was half way across Route 7 and the other one was crossing a back road. That one was lucky that I was able to do evasive maneuvers even though I was trucking along with a trailer on the back.

Painted turtle, those guys are all over.

I have stopped numerous times throughout the years to pick up turtles off the road,snappers included. One thing I was told is that you should always take them to the other side of the road that they are facing. They are going that way for a reason, probably to lay eggs.
