Anybody ever killed or seen a rattle snake or copperhead during spring turkey season
Killed a copperhead 2 years ago late in the season. Glad I had my muck boots on because it struck at me.
That's what I fear the most. People say that we don't have them .They can get in a flood in eastern KY and go to any county
There is no poisonous snakes where I live but a little over a week and a half ago I seen two snakes curled up laying in the sun.
I supposed you get used to bad snakes if you were brought up around them .
Only hunted East Ky for turkey for three years. Never seen a poisonous snake during turkey season. Never seen one at home either. Killed plenty during elk season. I do keep my guard up.
People say we don't have rattlesnakes and copperheads in Eastern Kentucky????
Copperheads are in all Ky counties
A couple of years ago in Alabama I saw a couple of hens in a field and slipped around a set down at an oak. I took my feet and pushed up some branches that were in front of me and started calling. After about 10 mins I looked down at my feet and a 3 foot rattlesnake was in all the limbs I had pushed up and my right foot was resting on the snake and he is just setting there watching me. I had to think about it a few secs and decided I needed to get up but there was no good way to do it without pushing the snake around. So as gracefully as I could for a 58 year old man I made my move and jumped to my feet and the snake never moved. After I regained my composure I found a big stick (my gun is still laying by the snake) and I beat his head to a pulp. I still get the willies when I do a quick setup or before daylight. The only thing the scares me more then getting snake bit walking through the woods is getting snake bit in the family jewels. Be careful out there.
Pretty sure copperheads are statewide mister.
I have live in this area my whole life and I have never seen one . I pick blackberries and hunt without any snake protection.
Several miles east , north and south of me there is Copperheads and rattlers. I have never heard of one within 15 miles of me
Bet you've never seen a bigfoot neither. lol. Copperheads have been documented in every county, but areas of counties are void. From Glasgow East to Monroe county, you don't see copperheads.
Never seen one in Owen or Boone county, Hope i never do.
I know they're in the woods with me when I'm hunting and I'm sure I've crossed their path, but they have never shown their existence. I hunt in Central and south central Kentucky. Heck... I've only seen them ran over.
We have copperheads and cottonmouths where I hunt. They don’t bother me and I don’t bother them.
