    Biggest Copperhead I ever!!

    I came across these two while i was bush hogging the field next to the house. The biggest one measured out to 37" and the other at 30". I've always been told where there is one there is another close by. They were about 30yrds from each other.

    Let this be a reminder that we should always be on the look out for these when out and about this time of year.

    My horses and kids are always out in this field. I'm glad I was able to take them out of the neighborhood.

    Please tell us you took 'em out with a Marlin ...

    I've seen a few in my time but I don't remember ever seeing one that big. Thanks for the pictures.

    Re: Biggest Copperhead I ever!!

    I have encountered quite few rattlers in my life. Especially during the 4 year period I worked for the USFS surveying logging roads (45 years ago). But the three poisonous snakes encounters I remember most were all in southern states. In the order of scariest and most aggessive (not defensive) were cottonmouth, copperhead, Eastern diamond backs rattlers (2 big ones).

    Snakes ! :P I leave them alone and hope they leave me alone, but I have killed a few just because I didn't want them around the kids and pets.

    The one on the end looks like it ate a rat or something....
    Never judge anyone by the color of their skin... unless their spray tan looks really bad

    Re: Biggest Copperhead I ever!!

    When we were kids, 14 or 15 ish we came across one all curled up on the side of a pond. Like idiots, we decided to harass it, big mistake, that sucker moved 20 feet in the blink of an eye, mother nature spared us with super fast reflexes. We never bothered any snake again.
