This year I nearly got bit myself. I was moving a large oxygen tank in a large garage to find an angry baby copperhead underneath. I jumped onto a large steel table at the last second. Then I grabbed a nearby shovel and chopped it into.

Lesson learned. Always have a shovel nearby Big Grin

Yeah, I've had close calls like that too.

Unfortunaly, I didn't have a shovel near by. An old mop handle and my 9 where the closest tools at my disposal.

Water moccasin surprised me when turning over rocks for frogs in my cousins creek once but it didn't strike and I left in a hurry but otherwise I rarely see snakes. I Always wanted to eat one.

9mm Beretta Px4 Storm... with hollow points...

What? It's meant to kill humans not snakes. I had to make due.

-_-

I suggest you use a shotgun with No. 9 shot (target loads).

You can get pistol caliber shot shells, but results are mixed.

Glad all is well. Thumbsup

I had to get rid of the truck because it didn't have room for 2 carseats.

I assure you that this is only a drop in the bucket and barely affects my overall score.

RE: Still shaking...
I feel bad for the poor creature, but I understand you did what you had to do to keep your kids from harm.

Stuff like this makes me happy I live in a country where the only real threat are ticks and mosquitoes.
I am however to not live in a chill place where people just assume you're shooting snakes when they hear gunshots. LOL

Your redneck index must be waaaay negative.

Time for you to move to Massachusetts.

Hippie Dippie with the Chevy Volt got more redneck cred than Bayou Billy. Tongue




As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
