    My dogs bayed this one 25' from front doorstep.

    Caught this one while bushogging a friend's deer plot. He had just eaten a squirrel. Just wanted to be left alone to snooze.

    Found this one while riding 4 wheeler about 100 yards off my land on my leased land. "Leave me alone!!" he said.

    I love snakes but don't mess with the venomous ones. That's a beautiful specimen!

    I collect the non-venomous ones and let 'em loose in my yard to keep the poisonous ones away. This guy's still running around somewhere, but the 2nd huge one of these (Grey Rat Snake) I turned loose had an unfortunate accident with the riding mower.

    I just collect dead skins. Is that an eastern diamondback? I have a 7 footer in my collection. Biggest one I've got.

    Yes, the only kind in my county are Eastern Diamondback and Pygmy (Ground) Rattlers. Some nearby counties have Timber (Canebrake) Rattlers.

    Killed a DB when I was a kid with 17 rattles. He stretched across back bumper, down to ground, and a lil ways each way on a '54 Plymouth car. Had to have been well over 7' long.

    Below is the biggest or next biggest I ever saw. It's on a 1x12" board. There are 79" of hide with several inches of head and tail missing. Lots of belly missing too. Neighbor gave it to me and Joey had it in his shed and rats ate it up.

    Nice snakes Cisco. I'd love to see an Eastern Diamondback in the wild. All I ever see is cottonmouths and copperheads, with the occasional Canebrake around here.

    My experience with a snake is posted on the thread [ preform or natural ] My big eastern measures about 70 inches long with 1 foot of the head and neck missing. I traded for it. I'm thinkin they must've weighed 25 0r 30 lbs. SCARRRRRRY!!!!!
