Aside from deer, the most interesting animal I've seen while playing was a very large wild turkey that suddenly exploded up from the leaves at my feet and flew along the treetops.

At Hiatt's Game on Paintball in New Market, TN there's a mating pair of fully grown black eastern kingsnakes on the field. The refs always make a point to tell people not to bother them as they do a good job keeping the copperheads away. I've had close run-ins with them several times.

Spotted all kinds of fun things while building/moving bunkers too.

well I know there are bears around my field, I"ve seen plenty of tracks, they even chased one off one day. I'm surprised I haven't seen more. There was a grouse/pheasant nesting by the top bunker that flew out one attack and defend game. That was interesting.

We've seen deer, the usual small critters, I know there are plenty of small snakes around (garters, ringnecks, nothing dangerous) they are pretty easy to find under deflated bunkers on warm days. The best one however was finding a snapping turtle the size of a dinner plate just under one of the airball bunkers one morning. That would have been interesting.

100% sure. We only have two venomous snakes in MN. They are both down in the Winona area near the Wisconsin border...and they are both fairly rare to encounter. I am an hour north of Duluth, so I am a good ways away.

Yeah, you're right (I looked it up afterwards), the timber rattler's territory doesn't go much further west than where I saw the one I mentioned. I was surprised b/c it's basically the same latitude.

A litter of kittens beneath a pallet in a staging area, and that is about it.

Oh, and dogs love the taste of paintballs also (very close relative to bears). It is because they are just starch.
