Copperheads love woodpiles. Usually some mice there for them to go after.

It's the most common venomous snake we have around my place.

I leave them alone when I encounter them out in the woods or a pasture, but when they venture up around the house, my shop or an outbuilding....then they get dispatched.

EDIT
Just a friendly tip:


If you should ever happen to dispatch a snake with a chainsaw (as was done in the second pic) be SURE to use the top of the bar so that it throws the snake AWAY from you. I didn't think about that and used the bottom of the bar and the chain jerked the snake right up under my feet!

They are the most common around here too,
We’ve got a big black snake here around the house that keeps them away.

Firewood’s in for the year now on to bow hunting.View attachment 2437343

Good job. Good luck bow-hunting.

Had to give up the old Stick and String last year. After 50 years of traditional bow-hunting (longbows and recurves) my shoulder 'rotator cuff' just won't take it anymore. Archery has always been my 'first love', but sadly I have to give it up.

Enjoyed countless hours hunting and practicing though, so I can't complain.

Thanks, I don’t get to serious, it’s more about hanging out in the woods.
I do both just got my first compound a few years ago.
My dad always told me wheels are for sissies.
