My closest call came while hunting shed antlers. I spied some off a small cliff- 6 feet down, in some large rock. I jumped down to fetch them and landed with my feet about 3 feet from a 4 foot rattler I had not seen.

No where to go but back up, that is exactly what I did ...and to this day I have no idea how. I cannot jump vertically anywhere near 3 feet from a standing start. AND, that rattlers fangs hit the bottom edge of my boot sole!

I thanked him with a large flat rock, got the antlers and a hatband, and was on my way, nerves humming like a tightly strung banjo. That was when I was about 16, and good lesson learned smile

Howdy rats. I hope everyone is having a good one today.

I'm finishing up my last week on the road for the year. Finally.

I do my best to avoid snakes. And around where I live, that's not all that difficult. Where I grew up was a different story. Cotton mouths, copperheads and rattlers were all too common.
When I was about 10 or so I found a big copperhead out in front of the house. I got a shovel and separated him from his head. Afterwards, I was poking it with the shovel and the head started biting the shovel! Lesson learned...don't mess with copperheads.

i used to go around my local creeks and woods and catch them and record populations and such and send them to DNR

There's plenty around the creek here at home, mostly Red Belly Blacks, but we also have eastern browns in lesser numbers, I'm not too fond of those. grin

I used to live in heavily populated Taipan areas, they worry me a lot, extremely fast and aggressive.

Magoo,
Its been a cooler weekend so far, the snakes don't worry me too much, as long as they stay where they should live and keep away from the house. The ones that don't abide by the rules go to the happy snake grounds in the sky. grin

They get Merkel'ed with #9 shot.
