    Or peacocks, much prettier to look out than a mongoose. Also much more annoying when they start calling each other in the night up in tree tops. Will make you start to wonder how peacock taste.

    Finally,,and I just knew it was still hiding in the garage somewhere,,this morning,,the wife goes out to get in her vehicle to go to work,,and there is the copperhead laying next to the lawn mower,,she chases it out of the garage into the woods with a garden rake,,and so everything is fine now..and nobody has gotten bitten..and the snake lives to tell about it another day!

    This doesn't occur in MO. but across the river in IL it attracts alot of attention. I'm headed over the waters to observe the mirgation.

    It's awesome, if your timing is right. I've been twice annually for several years now, and it varies quite a bit in volume of snakes. Fall is usually much better than spring (with a lot more cottons ) and sunny, cool-ish days are the best. Heck, I might see you down there.

    But, related to the post, the risk of getting bitten is very slim if you're careful. Almost none of the snake nerds (myself included) wear gaiters or anything. Timbers are uncommon, and if you're lucky enough to see one, it'll let you know it's angry before it strikes. But if you want to be cautious, go for it. Can't hurt. (but a bite can!)

    Caveat: I did VERY nearly step on a copperhead there once. Barely stopped my foot in time. So watch your step!
