yikes i would'a got bit

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

I never saw it, what kind is it? I hate all snakes. Water snakes used to chase me out of the creek when I was small. That's when I declared all snakes creep me out!

Is that a timber rattler? The head looks like a triangle and maybe has some venom in there. What is it?? I hate snakes.

I never saw it either... "OUCH"

Looks like a copperhead

We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results

woo hoo. I think I won spot the snake. Welcome to the woods of TN. I would not have seen it till right before I stepped on it. Then I would have proceeded to beat it with a stick till it was lifeless. I also hate snakes of the poisonous type. copperheads and rattlers in my woods.

I killed a king snake 1 time and my uncle threatened my life. Said to leave those snakes alone because they kill the "bad" ones.

It is a copperhead and as you can see they are very hard to see. They don't give any warning like you might get with a rattler, that's why if I'm in thick woods I wear my snake chaps into the stand.

I only dislike the snakes I can't see.

One thing we don't deal with very often is copperheads. They are mostly in the southern part of the state. There is one section of Ohio called copperhead alley its in Scioto State park close to Kentucky border. Park rangers tell people not to go in there!
