Gathered up to mate. I’ve seen nests with six grown snakes and 30+ young snakes before
I grew up and lived most all my life up that way, we seen and killed many copperheads every summer.We always had feist dogs ,that would bay the snakes ,we’d take a hoe usually and go to em ,and kill the snake.
There was a car hit , one below my brother in laws house last year, he went down where it was at ,the guy that hit it, was out looking at it , and hit it with a jack , thirteen or fourteen babies come out of it.
I hate a copperhead!
Okay y'all.... General water snake or copperhead? Was at the boat dock area at Guist Creek Lake a couple of weekends ago. I was too busy running away while my son took the pic...
Water snake. KDFWR Herpetologist was on KY Afield recently. He said an easy way to tell the difference is that the bands on copperheads get wider on the snakes sides. Water snakes get narrower. I killed a bunch of those as a kid. Thought I was killing copperheads. I feel bad about that now. Also non venomous water snakes swim with their body submerged. Venomous swim on top.
water snake. See what HH said.
I nearly got in a fist fight with my fishing partner who wanted to pull his sidearm out and blast a “copperhead” right by the docks at Kenkake. Idiot called me retarded if I didn’t think that was for sure a copperhead. This guy is one of the most outdoors fellas you will ever meet but snakes sure wasn’t his strong suit. I convinced him to put up his piece and let the banded water snake go but he still left sure I was the moron lol.
As an adult, I usually let non venomous snake go their own way but I have NEVER felt bad about killing a snake.
Just now mowing around the garden.
Bet ur glad you didn't find him in the melon patch Barney! Always a little nerving pickin cukes for me
He was spittin' distance from it. Ouch!
Every snakes a copperhead to come folks. Even a black snake. I’ve seen everything called copperhead at one time or another
Do you have a after picture ?
I would have killed it for sure .
Is this where the old saying "beating the bushes? comes from?
