What's the biggest Cow Sucker (snake) you have ever seen? Several years ago I saw one in Owen County crossing a two lane road that stretched from one side to the other! Anybody got any pictures?GOD, GUNS, and GAME!!

I saw one that crossed one and a half lanes of an old country two lane and was still coming out of the grass once. I figure it was a big black king snake.
We have run over some of those while bush hogging in the summer that were enormous.It's not so much if you win or lose - it's how you shoot the flaming arrow while riding a camel.

Don't know what a "cow sucker" is, but I was at the inlaws a few years ago. I got this one out of the neighbor lady's kitchen. About 4 1/2 feet...
I got one out of a copier machine at work a while back that went just under 6 feet. I think he was somebody's pet that got loose. He's living under my shed now...

Are you sure that wasn't Shagari Alleyne & Woo? They would be about the right size & both spent most of their time laying around...An idiot savant is still an idiot...

It was a narrow two lanes, but two lanes just the same. It was along the Kentucky River so nothing would bother it. I wish I would have had a cell phone with a camera!GOD, GUNS, and GAME!!

I saw a black rat snake on a 1 lane country road here in Fayette county that was approx. as wide as the road. I'd say 7-8 feet. I stopped the car and nudged his tail with my foot just as he was going into the weeds. As soon as I touched him, he turned around real quick and went HISSSSSSSSS! I was GONE!!! The guy that owns the land I hunt on at the Boyle/ Casey county line killed a 7'2" rattlesnake. I wasn't there, but I've seen the pictures.
You always need to be careful when dealing with snakes if you are not sure what species it is. I saw an article in Kentucky Afield where a biologist was called to remove a snake from a garage in eastern KY and it turned out to be a Cobra. You just never know, but it's not the right thing to do to kill every snake you see.
