while this is a true comment, not sure it matters in this case since he's not claiming any records or trying to win the internet for the day . Heck, he's not even claiming the size, just that it was big. I think we can all agree it was a big snake, whether it was 4 feet or 6 feet, its a big snake. Now if he was making record breaking claims I'd be in the same boat as you as far as needing a tape measure on it and such. But there's enough in that picture for me to agree with the general assessment of it being a big snake.

What is your recommendation for proper distance to hold a poisonous viper away from your body?

Good size snake and he's mighty healthy too.

Using the pole ends together to measure 1.5" I've got him at 40" to 44".

I didnít think it was that big. I see them that size all the time around my creeks. Iíve got video of two wrestling that are about that size.

You made the right call. That is the largest moccasin I have ever seen, and I have seen a few. Good kill.
