Oh yeah.Almost stepped on one at Pat Mayse WMA in winter a few years ago. Shook me up because I didn't have on my snakeboots at the time. All it takes is a few days of warm temps and they'll come out of their holes. They'll be sluggish but still might bite. By the way,chiggers are the same way,a few days of warm weather and they seem to "wake up".And I hate them even more than I do snakes! mad

I hate snakes. Always keep an eye out. I've seen some big nasty cotton mouths up through November and a guess early December.
My bottoms are flooded about knee deep now. I'm guessing the snakes are in hollow trees or on high ground right now.
Wouldn't worry too much about them Sept on warm sunny days and March till December.
