Snakes are still out ??

Recommended Posts

Big old Copperhead. I have had them chase me this time of year when out bank fishing.

Never seen one that big most were 2 to 2 1/2 feet long.

Wow. That's a huge copperhead and it's color is fantastic.  Most of the ones I've seen are much more grey.

Have accidently dispatched a lot of copper heads over the years, some were really big around but never that long. A hay mower will take their heads off,  when they raise up to see what is going on , and mostly leave their bodies intact. This time of the year around here they really blend into the falling leaves.

You got to figure that is west Tennessee also. Short story from years ago, a friend was deer hunting in the Mississippi Delta and it was bitterly cold. He went out and it was icy so he opted not to get into his ladder stand and instead sat on the ground, he kept seeing something out in front of him and couldn't quite make it out,  he finally got up and walked over and it was a big rattlesnake so he killed it. Btw it ain't illegal in Ms. So he is cold and decided to go back to the camp and after a few steps he thinks to himself if there is 1 snake out I better watch my step, he killed 3 or 4 more on the way back to the camp, his father didn't go that morning and he said boy either you missed a bunch or we are going to be skinning deer all day, he reached into his pocket and dropped the rattles on the table. Btw he said ice was spewed out of the ground. Moral to the story, no matter the weather, watch where you walk and sit!!
