    Default Chunkhead

    Southern Copperhead. Found this one at Winding Stair National Park in Oklahoma. This one earned the name "21 Blackjack", as we found 39 live copperheads that night (42 including DOR). We cruised 49 snakes total that night.

    Copper heads are so good looking!
    Would love to hold one captive, but choose not to keep the hotties.

    As far as captive hots I think copperheads or pygmy rattlers would be a good ones. All the ones we hooked were INSANE though. They shoot right off the hook! I heard they tame down in captivity.

    I saw you mentioned finding alot of them,39 in one night.

    Seems like when I find them, I can look around some and find several pretty easily. The rest of the year, I can search high and low and find none.

    Just wondering if you have the same going on.

    This was a weekend trip.

    We drove down on a Friday night and drove up and down a 10-15 mile stretch in the Ouachita Mountains. First night, between two vehicles making passes, we found only one horridus and 2 copperheads. This was the following night. It had rained all day and the temperature spiked, so the humidity was up. Night before it was in the low-mid 70's. They seem to become most active when it's high 70's-80's after a rain. They are nocturnal during the summer but they are also a plentiful snake too so it's not unusual to see a lot of them.

    Our target was horridus but on the first night the other group got the only one, and none were seen the following night. If the copperheads and pygmy rattlers were moving its a certainty the timbers were too, we just didn't have the luck to see one crossing!
