Man, I hate that snake. I mean absolutely detest that particular critter.

I've had more close calls with them than any other poisonous snake, including one that was rafted up in DECEMBER, in Arkansas, on a duck hunt with me crotch deep in waders. Geez that critter was right there.

Their other nasty habit seems to be to appear in a perfectly decent hardwood hollow, miles from any swamp or lowland, that has a trickle of a stream in it.

WE've got two varieties of rattlers, and a ton of copperheads, and I don't mind sharing the woods with them too much at all. No real problems. But it's cottonmouths that seem to turn up where you least expect them and get all nasty.
