Sandfly, I'm surprised you haven't seen any. They're common along the Pine Creek trail between Tiadaghton and Darling Run. I was amused last August by some tourist bike riders looking at some as if they were behind glass.

The area I most commonly see rattlesnakes is down Slate Run.

The best advice is to stay alert, cause if you're fishing a stream like slate run and you get hit, the walk is long, steep and the only thing a cell phone is gonna be good for is getting yourself on video saying goodbye.

Love the gun talk though. Draw and fire before a rattler nails ya. Sounds like a good test for the mythbusters....lol

I know this i an old thread but on the subject of misidentified snakes, juvenile black snakes have markings similar to copperheads and rattlesnakes. Because of their markings and juveniles being somewhat agressive they are commonly misidentified. Also northern watersnakes can be aggressive at times which is probably a reason why they are thought to be water mocasins.

FWIW, the third one in that photo group is exceptionally dangerous, and its pretty obvious to anyone who knows what to look for..

Notice how his eyes are milky? That means he's coming up on a shed, and the scales over his eyes are seperating from the new ones. WHat makes him even more dangerous than normal is because his already poor vision is compromised you're even more likely to face some aggression.

Obviously, the advise is to avoid any wild snake, but be aware that sometimes they can be even more unpredictable.

Does anyone know if rattlers are out during/after a rain? In other words, do they sit tight during wet conditions?

I would thin that right after a rain they might be looking for someplace to warm up.

If you want to see something that really sends chills up your spin go to the snake show at the Hamburg Firehouse sometime. There are guys selling all kinds of poisonous snakes along with constrictors. Moccasins, rattlers, copperheads, cobras, all there for sale. I think the only restriction is they can't sell sub-species native to PA.

Yes, I've had both, fried. A lot like white chicken meat, maybe a little more greasy.
