    No copperheads in this part of the country, but I killed a rattlesnake inside our clubs' shooting range last week. I went to do some work and let myself in. There is a gap under the door and as I go in I see a little 3 footer coiled up there next to the door. He politely waited there for me to get the woodstove shovel and cut his head off.

    There a lot of hikers, bike riders, people parking their cars in the lot, so he had to go. Not a good place to head him in a different direction and turn it loose.

    What Dennis said.

    We do though have a skunk that needs to be dealt with. As far as copperheads in Oregon, they don't exist here outside of someone's
    aquarium.

    I've usually seen - and killed - a half-dozen by mid-July, but none have appeared so far this year.

    They get killed because I'm tired of taking my dogs to the vet for snakebite at $1000 a chomp.
