I was in my shop working all morning on a deer and turned around and this snake was near my leg. I jumped really quick and immediately started yelling at my father sayinh you got me. He replied "what do you mean i got you?" i "said with this dang snake" as im reaching down to pick up think it was rubber he says "i dont know what your talking about i didnt have a rubber snake" I snatched my hand back it moved so i killed it... i have been searching and cant find anything similar to it anywhere online anybody else have any ideas ???

It looks like a mud snake to me. How much damage does it have?

When you say "i pulled the inners out" are you meaning you tubed skinned it, then fleshed it?

Re: anybody know what kind of snake this is?????

It's a dead snake!, so in my book, it's a "good snake" :D
I don't like snakes, can you tell?
Still had to look at the pic, though.
If Perry says it's a mud snake, I'll have to go with that. Thank God, it's dead!
Did I mention, I don't like snakes?
