    Yesterday the Wife brought me a Pine Snake that She picked up in a flower bed. She was wearing gloves.
    We leave the non poisonous ones alone to eat insects. Got a few copperheads but seldom see one.
    Last year we had a 3' King snake living under one of our storage buildings. Daughter has had two large Black Snakes around her house and dares anyone to bother them.
    As a general rule, IMO, all snakes do more good than bad.
    It is illegal to kill a non poisonous snake in Georgia and you can only kill a poisonous snake if it is a threat to your well being.

    I saw more snakes last Spring than ever. I used to not think twice about them (def once!) but a cotton mouth launched itself at me - caught the movement out of the corner of my eye. Thank God for quick reflexes. That sure shook me up. Now, if there is brush along the water, I pick up and toss rocks or sticks ahead of me. I even bought some snake guards but am kind of reluctant to be seen in them.

    There are no ancient secrets to decoding the past, there is only great research and applied logic.

    Better make that 2 out of 25,000. I got it too.

    A coupe years ago a man camping in the Medix run area (Close to Benezette) He was setting at his camp fire around midnight and reached in his wood pile for another piece of wood. A timber rattler bit him on the hand. This fellow did not know where the hospital was and had no cell phone coverage I am not sure if he made it to the hospital. But i do know the snakebite to him was FATAL. If your out camping be careful and ESPICALLY around your wood piles !

    On my side of Keating Summit, no rattles.
    On that side,, lots of snakes. Every once in a while, people spot a rattled in my area that some say must have fallen off a truck full of logs.

    Against the wind: My guess would be the South side of the mountains gets th7e most sun and warmth. That side probably would have the most snakes. BUT I have been WRONG BEFORE !!

    He was highly allergic to the venom just as some people are highly allergic to bee venom.
