Timber rattlesnakes

  1. A couple of years ago I was turkey hunting at LBL and dozed off. This is what I saw when I woke up, kinda hard to see its right over the toe of my boot.

    I assume it died of lead poisoning shortly after this pic was taken.

    I don't like copperheads, but rattlesnakes make the hair on the back of my neck bristle!

    Yup about like shrooms, a person spends enough time outdoors it comes natural I reckon. The backside of stepping over logs is where I believe to be their best striking/ hunting location or rock crevices. Depends on their attitude and my mood "if" way back away from houses whether they live and get to hunt again.

    I am glad to live where we do with no poisonous snakes around. I walk the woods all the time in low top shoes ,sit down where ever we want and step over logs without the fear of being bitten by a bad snake.
