It's a Western rat snake, also called Texas rat snake. Formerly elaphe obsoleta, it's been reclassified as pantehrophis obsoleta.

Looks like Rat Snake. A good one to have around.

Not if you like quail. They eat all bird eggs they can. I kill all rat snakes I see.

Mice and rats will eat more quail eggs than a rat snake ever could. I'm no snake lover (I kill all venomous species I contact) but the good snakes get a pass. Your reason for killing rat snakes is misguided.

Texas Rat Snake. One of the most common large snakes you'll see, especially in a wooded area.

Rat snake - had one hang around my barn for years. He kept the rodent population down and would help himself to some chicken eggs.

You need to spend some more time in the woods.

Not really. I'm 57 and been hunting and fishing all my life. You should spend more time educating yourself.
