After going through the flail, they looked more like beanie weanies.

Yes they are. They aren't as poisonous as many rattlesnakes, but are very aggressive. Most snakes in this part of the area will move away from a person or noise, but a copperhead will stand it's ground. Of coures, when it takes on a flail mower it's not much of a contest.

not to worry PartsMan, the copperheads don't range farther north than New Hampshire. but here in CT, when climbing around rocks, you would be prudent to watch where your hands and feet are placed. copperheads are not very big, but they are ornery.
:idea: if only they were painted construction orange or something so as we could see them. :idea:
i could bring you a couple next month, if you feel left out :lol:

Flailed, unskinned copperhead is not as good as the larger skinned filets. The flailed always shrivel up on the grill and get too crispy unless you keep a real slow fire.

Also alot depends on the flailing technique. I'm fairly sure John has flailed a few Farmington filets before so these might be ok.

Always boil the filets at least 5 minutes before grilling.

John:

Have never met up with a copperhead, but have come realllll close to water moccassin's back home in Northern Ontario. At the Frederick House Dam where my Grand-Dad was the dam keeper, water moccassin's were quite a common site and many a swimmer had unexpected company. As long as you didn't start flailing around they usually left after a bit -- calm and cool and collected was the buzz word around mocc's :shock: :roll: Never tried to BBQ one though!
