    Copperheads are out and aggressive as the wife killed a 2 footer in the driveway yesterday. Heat is bringing them out and they mate in springtime and are nasty when mating. Just a FYI!

    Last year during turkey season, I kinda got freaked out hearing all of the reports of rattlers and copperheads (I'm deathly afraid of snakes). I bought a pair of snake gaiters from Amazon. Luckily they weren't needed. I even wore them when I was helping a friend put up his deer stand in late September. These come up to your knees and are pretty thick. Hopefully I will never need them. I always hated sitting in the woods very early waiting for legal hunting time.

    Got a set!!! LOL. Cousin has landscaping business in Bedford and him, his crew, and his wife wear them and he has been hit twice already (copperheads) wearing his, cleaning out flower gardens and shrubs and re multching customers as well as removing brush.

    I don't care to get bit by a snake but something to keep in mind, more people die from insect bites than snake bites. Just saying I have never been bit by a poisonous snake but I have been bit by a brown recluse.

    We saw a timber rattler about three years ago in Perry county, just a mile or so from the high school. It was crossing the paved road, it was the length of one lane of the road and nearly as thick as my leg. We where on a motorcycle and changed lanes. I never knew of one to get that big around here.
    It looked like something from a movie, a horror movie...

    I camp at the lakes just a few miles from there, made me take a closer look when picking up fire wood!

    I have a Crosman 1322 pellet pistol we nicknamed "snake", I use to carry around the place. It earned its name many times over. But with the increase in coyotes and all the bobcats sightings I have taken to packing something with a little more punch when I take to the woods.

    Copperheads are molting and mean as heck right now. The wife got chased and struck at yesterday even before killing a 3.5’ one with a shovel in the yard. She’s part native Indian and just goes after them when she sees one. Then she tells her nephew last nite and one of his mowing crew encountered one mowing a grave yard near Bedford this morning acting mean and molting about 2.5 ft long before he wacked it. Be careful if your hunting and near weeds as they are mousers and thrive moreso in the weeds and weed lines.

    remember this post if you start feeling mean and molting.
