Be careful. Went to the lease last week with the kids. Did some exploring safely and my 10 year old daughter spotted a few snakes on a hill which I expected. We were safe. Coords were provided and Black Ops went in this week. My boy almost stepped on one by here last year and me to after filling a feeder. This was one den. We got a ton more I think. Killed two in camp itself just walking around in Sept. 12 rattlers and copperheads trying to cook dinner so still less than 5% of the time...

Snakes don't use calendars and can be out any time it is warm. I have seen copperheads at my place every month of the year.

I see rattlers 12 months of the year but I usually know where they are Nov to Mar. On a south slope facing rock. These were from a single rock. Luckily only had copperheads 2 years ago in the summer. They came out of nowhere in camp.

Venomous around house, barn, shop and pond get killed, especially a-hole cottonmouths. Non-venomous get a pass.

Cottonmouths are the yellow jackets of the snake world. They should be eradicated with utmost vigor.

Why all the different opinion on the cottonmouth ? I've seen very little of them
I would put the copperhead more of the pest due to the numbers and tight locations they get around Patios and kid areas

I'm a firm believer that the only good snake is a dead snake. Even the "harmless" snakes give me the heebeejeebees! I won't go after them but if they look at me wrong, they die.

Cottonmouths are super aggressive. I once beat one senseless with a boat paddle on Choke Canyon while he was trying to get in our boat. He went into a death roll on top of the water. After a few minutes of recovery he headed right back toward the boat. Pulled up anchor and got the H out of there. It was this time of year and we were fishing the shallows for catfish. I will never forget it.

Lying is lying. Don't bitch about one doing it and condone another. That's called hypocrisy.
