Found this guy this afternoon.
I know it’s been warmer this week, but I didn’t expect them this early

Good looking one. Very beneficial. Far better for the environment than a domestic cat

Not my favorite critter, when something with no legs gets around better than I do....it just ain't right. But....they have there place and can only imagine the rodent population without them.

Saw a small one yesterday as I mowed for the first time this year.

I have never understood the fear of snakes. I respect them but do not fear them. I will relocate them if need be but don’t see the need in killing them.

Let one crawl up your pants leg while your turkey hunting and I bet you won’t feel that way!

A neighbor down the road had 2 copper heads in their yard this weekend.

I have a healthy respect for poisonous snakes, and only have a fright when I'm stepping on one accidentally.

Same here. I lived in the deep woods, in a military wall tent, off grid for 6 years. Yes by choice. I had a black snake that took up residence with me the third summer. Poof, no more waking in the middle of the night to hear another danged mouse chewing on another danged something of mine. I'd see it's tail sticking out of this nook, that cranny once in a while. a few times it would scurry away when I came walking in on the plywood flooring. My only fear was what it's bill would be for rodent control if it billed me....

Only the poisonous snakes bother me. I just want to see them in time to keep from getting too close to them. Not a worse feeling in the world than walking along on a nice day all happy you got 2 buckets of peaches from a tree at an abandoned homesite on my hunting lease before the bugs and birds got them. Then stepping on what feels like a garden hose where you know there are none! I bruised up about a bushel of peaches where I jumped, slung buckets, and about had a heart attack. I heard someone scream like a little girl but I never figured out who. :oops: Corn snakes are often mistaken for copperheads.
The non poisonous ones I don't bother, they do great work at rodent control. But I don't want to pick up or play with any of them. I sure wouldn't have one as a pet.
