Abstract:
Snapping turtles are found throughout North Carolina, and there is still a market for turtle meat. The author accompanies several friends who are turtle hunters in Franklin County. The hunters catch turtles by placing in a lake bed a bamboo pole that has a line and hook attached. With any form of meat as bait, the hook is left overnight. The following day the lines are checked and any caught turtles are hauled into a boat. Turtle catchers avoid injuries by handling the animals with care. Turtles are sold while still alive, and those who can stand the danger and smell receive fifty cents per pound for their catch.
