This past weekend, I observed the hatch of 8-10 Snapping Turtles on Rathbun Bay, Jack Lake. There is a very small sand beach between my neighbours cottages and the young turtles (1-1.5 inches in size) were all in the shallow water adjacent to the beach. No nesting activity had been observed back in early summer.
