    Your mom must like copperheads. Blacksnakes eat them, so the more blacks she can kill, the more copperheads she will have.

    Blacks are easier to find than copperheads, so they will be killed out first, leaving more room for coppers. The lesser of two evils should be chosen. Killing the blacks and kings is accepting the more dangerous to inhabit your land. It's your choice.

    Sorry. Although I trust the snakes, I don't trust the catchers.

    With the feral hog problem we have in Alabama, we don't have as many snakes as we used to have. I never intentionally kill a snake on my property but I've never seen a poisonous one around here. Around the house with the grandchildren, I might have to get rid of them.

    No need to be sorry Iddee, most of the snakes around here I will catch and relocate to the woods (just to make the wife feel better) or watch them and never say I saw it.

    I was saying sorry to the rat. I'm not holding the bag for a bunch of rednecks to drop a rattler in. As said, I trust the rattlers, but not the guy holding it.

    Take notice, both guys who don't kill say they have no venomous around. Now compare that to stories from "all snake" killers who find venomous ones in the yard and buildings. It will tell you something.

    According to the Mo. Conservation dept. all snakes are protected here. I don't kill king snakes and black snakes, but can't say the same for copperheads,cotten mouths, pigmy rattlers,and timber rattlers. Several years ago while working my bees around the Big Sac river i kept shaking my lege, i thought i had a blackberry brier hung on my pant lege. It wasn't, it was a copperhead about a foot long. (looked alot bigger at the time) Needless to say,i look under the hives in that area now before i start working bee hives. :mrgreen: Dpn't see many anymore,i think the wild turkey and feral hogs eat them like bamabww said.

    Actually, the nearest thing to snake I have eaten is buffalo. Both are dry, with little flavor.

    Your snake must've been overcooked... mine was rubbery, a lot like aligator tail actually... then again, maybe mine was undercooked.
