Gopher Trapping

I'm at this B&B in Leakesville, Mississippi while trapping gopher tortoises in Greene County to collect blood for testing for upper respiratory tract disease. In the past 5 days I've gotten 20 tortoises. Thanks to Emmett Blankenship for invaluable help in drawing blood. A few pictures below.
