Rattle snakes eastern ky

  1. I actually stepped on and got bit on the snake chaps by this one digging ginseng a few years ago. You can see the 3 prong in the pic & the snake next to it. Never rattled even after striking. I’ve seen some big ones digging. My dad killed one with a head as wide as my fist and girth the size of my leg once digging. Probably 6ft long. Biggest I’ve ever seen in my life.

    This was second hand information, but reliable. About 4-5 years back (that's my feeble recollection) a group of guys were clearing brush from a ditch line in Lexington (INSIDE CITY LIMITS) when one of them uncovered a nest of 4 or 5 smaller ones. One guy got nailed, and survived, and they sent out a battalion on a seek & destroy mission. They think they got them all. That was over by Alexandria. The fellow I got that from was a Property Manager of several local businesses in the area. City dwelling rattlers, whod'a thunk?
