I know that feeling well.
I never saw a canebrake in Irwin county ever but when we bought this property in Wilcox back in 99 & moved here I have encountered both canebrakes & diamondbacks & plenty of "em. All I ever came across in Irwin was diamondbacks. Honkey do you see canebrakes in Irwin these days?

That`s a pile of snakes out of one gopher hole. About the most I`ve heard of around here.

Around here we have all 6 of the venomous ones, but the the copperhead is the rarest. I still need a coral and pygmy to have caught all of them here in my yard in Lee County.

Timber rattlers use to scare me to death but since we have so many in Hancock co, very rarely do they bother me now. However if the boys are around it is a different story

Three unintentional hits since I was old enough to walk. One each from a diamondback, canebrake, and cottonmouth. It feels like a light to moderate slap on the boot. All that bull about them knocking you off your feet or breaking your leg is just that, bull.

But, no matter how much you ain`t scared of em, it will still make you jump.

Time to head down to the camphouse & ice down a few. I'll be watching for rattlesnakes while easing around the fields.
