A Copperhead surprised me. That is the wrong thing to do. It was right by my ankle, very PO'd, and only our German Shepard taunting it prevented a strike.
Results......Well.....I might have one of our fine leather artists make me a fancy BBQ rig for my BBQ Glock........
Here it is before skinning:
Coiled up for tanning:
Here he sleeps......
The tanning solution is 50% Alcohol and 50% Glycerine

As my wife says...."That's a Good Snake"
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

That's a nice skin there.
That's one good thing about Vermont, not a lot of poisonous snakes. We have some, but not many.

I took the head off one that thought he could beat the blade kit on my weedeater. I wish I had thought about skinning it. Of course someone else would have to do the skinning.

Good thing is copperheads are not terribly aggressive.
