    Yesterday i spoke with an ole' coonhuntin buddie and he said he had killed 5 copperheads the past week.No big surprise cause their thick in my neck of the woods. Yesterday evenin another friend stopped by and ask me to ride around and look at the deer and swing by to feed his gal-pals horse and chickens. When we pulled up to the barn there was a pile of slabs (wood) layin there and i thought dang what some habitat:crazy: About that time my buddie said this dang place is infested with copperheads. We fed the horse and turned around going to the truck and there he was, bout 3 feet long. I had apparently walked over it once and almost stepped on it the second time. Fall is in the air and they are on the move. Keep ya eyes open, he'll bite ya.

    There are lots of them in this area too. My husband sees them quite a bit on the farm where he works. They grow a lot of tobacco and the barns where they fire it attract the copperheads. Guess they want to be nice and cozy by the fire. Sure am glad he wears some tough boots to work. Y'all be careful over there.

    Killed two last week.

    Pretty docile little snakes...you almost have to work at it to get bit by one.

    Them buggers are all over the place here in n. Ark. too.
    They are very active now.
    They may not be aggressive snakes, but they are almost impossible to see and sure don`t like it if you step on em.
