    Anyone have a photo of the snake. My wife showed it to me on Face book. Looked real and had the boys name and details of the kill. Looked to be a timber rattler and very likely the largest I have ever seen. I do not face book so I have no photo.

    I don't have a photo. But did see it I believe. Was that the one that was crawling into the guys blind with him and his son during turkey season?

    Yes but they were hunting for hogs not turkey. Big wasn't it.

    I just sent a message to a friend at Midway, asking about it, maybe he will have a pic or know something.

    I saw it but thought it was a Coon tail.

    It's easy to "long arm" a snake to make it look big.

    Yep. There aint any spanish moss in Midway. Looks like a gulf region kill.

    Yes, this snake (above) and that Mountain lion from Prescott have been killed many times,






    Here is the latest Fake snake going around Facebook

    Photoshop!!!
    I think they did not show the snake in the bucket because the two pics don’t blend together well?
