    Would you believe in Maryland it is not legal to kill any snake.

    Just saw and caught my first garter snake of the year. I have to catch them to say hi.

    I hunt in Texas and Louisiana and we have snakes year round

    Our Jack Russell Terrier was bitten by a now dead Copperhead in our backyard, curled up in a patch of chives. We saw a 5-6' King Snake sunning himself on a dirt road a couple of days ago. I know King Snakes aren't venomous but the things that you'll do when one slithers under your feet can cause you to hurt yourself

    I did not know that! I won’t harm the slithery little fellas! I was in the woods yesterday looking for some old bottle dumps. Found one from around the 40s-50s I believe, but no snake friends!

    No poisonous snakes where I live. I'm glad. Thirty miles south and it's a different story. Gary

    Not many poisonous snakes around here thankfully. If we had them I’d have to be more careful about jumping off the lawnmower to snatch em up and show the kids. Spent many summers at my grandparents in Arkansas, lots of stuff is trying to bite you down there.

    Got a few black snakes around the yard... i leave em be...

    They are fast and stealthy... staying close to things... for if not... BAM... an Opsrey or hawk will nail em.

    I also heard and i dont know if it is true... that if you have black snakes then you dont have other snakes... not sure of this is true... perhaps someone here knows.

    knows.
    Snake in general is not really on the menu for black rat snakes. They prefer to stick to warm blooded animals like rats, mice, moles, and other rodents. While they have also been known to eat the occasional bird, insect, or reptile as well.
    how they do help keep other snakes away is by reducing the food source available.

    hey thanks, In all my time in ny i have never seen one, now I know why. I don't spend much time out east. snakes are cool, I even had a pet snake at one time. I just dislike having to check places every time I do Something or reach somewhere. That was the worst part when I spent a few summers in western NC.

    That's because all the politicians in Maryland are snakes .. They are looking out for their well being.

    It's never a bad year for snakes. I've never met a snake I didn't like. Including rattlesnakes. I had a bad year last year as I only saw 2 rattlers, but the amount of non-venemous I saw made up for it.

    Yeah, Maryland is controlled by one side. Not political thread so lets not go into detail.
