Default Dang, the things you find when plowing a dove field

Running behind schedule due to work schedule but took Friday off to plow our dove field for Labor Day weekend .

Hoping to get it planted next Friday

Saw this sucker just as I ran over him, was not sure if plow got him or not but came back by same spot a little later and found him

How did you manage to not sink the tractor?

All this rain rain has driven snakes out into the open everywhere. Caught a 4’ Black racer last week. Wife still freaking out about it.

Had some "issues" in low spots but most of the rain came later.

Was hoping to plant today but naturally that was out of the question

we got 3” in Spartanburg since 2:00 Saturday afternoon. Amazing managed to get in some time on the water without getting stuck in a storm.

Hate to see him dead. Know it was by circumstance.

You guys got way more than we did. Only between 1-2" all weekend here.

Saw a huge snake at the boat landing friday evening slithering across the dirt parking lot. I was barefoot with a small child in my arms, didn't get close to investigate.

Yes it is

Actually very pretty snakes and trust me they can be very hard to see at times

Wouldn't call them deadly but the venom can make you pretty sick, buddy of mine's wife stepped on one last summer at their house taking trash out one night . She ended up in the hospital for couple days

My 87 year old grandmother got bitten by one a few years ago taking the mail to the mailbox...right on the top of her foot.

Fortunately she knew exactly what it was and my family runs the Fire Dept/EMS squad so she called directly and they were there within minutes. Still, made her feel bad for months.

A copperhead won't kill you but definitely not something to mess around with. What's weird was he was in the grass and lunged at her...usually they are very shy unless you step on them.

If you find some black racers around, consider yourself lucky. Shouldn't have to worry about copperheads then.

Got another 1/4" overnight. Ground is saturated. This type of situation is when we start seeing huge oaks topple and kill folks, especially if any wind comes along.

What hurts more is the cost of anti venom. I am more scared of that then the actual bite in most cases. I love the black racers around my house though. Put down mulch and some grass seed and saw a little guy in the bushes. No wonder no more rats.

Yep, guess you saw the terrible tragedy with the 2 from WYFF TV, sounds like that was exactly what happened

Yep. They had just left from doing an interview with the local search and rescue chief, who was the one to get the call to respond about 10 minutes later.
