    There is a spot in Maries county that has a good population those I’ve seen were always dark. Might be just the different area .
    I’m not saying it isn’t . Glad we don’t have em . But several copperheads though:(

    Who knows, may not even be a Missouri picture.

    Enough to make me think, but not enough to make me quit turkey hunting. :D

    i saw one up at bonanza area while squirrel hunting late sept way back when i was 22 i think.the rattle is what alerted me.the sound reminded me of a cicada in early morningg grass with dew.the walk back to truck was the longest walk i ever took.every movement had me jumpy.

    So do snakes , so the turkeys eat the snakes to get the quail. It's a vicious circle.

    Missouri snakes arent big enough to eat turkey eggs. They only get big enough about 150 miles farther south....

    We have our very own subspecies of them up here , they get a rattle with each turkey nest sucked.
