I spent this last day of spring turkey season on my lease in Haralson Co. I came across this guy enjoying the afternoon sun. I was well aware of the snake's presence plus was wearing snake boots. I did not feel threatened and was in no danger of getting bit so I did not kill it. I've reached a point in my life where I could not justify shooting this beautiful copperhead. If I was in a position where I might have been bitten maybe things would have been different. I was wondering how some of my fellow sportsmen feel about this. I know a few guys in my lease are not happy that I did not kill it.
