Maybe you can arrange an express. That would make a nice mouser to keep in your blind.

Every year there is someone looking for one for snakebite training for dogs.

I'd sure like to have it for the glove box in my truck. Next best thing to a baby ratter. But you're a bit far for a copperhead.

That one has been eating well, if it was a good bit longer, I would be interested. I guess I could feed it for a while and let it grow till it got to the size I am looking for. I don't think my wife would go for that. I have three in the freezer, been wanting to get a big one, to add to the collection. I want to get the hides tanned, then use them in some projects.

Great for dog training, taxidermist friend used ti keep snakes u til they shed to mount for competition. Due to excellent skin after shedding.
Good luck on the new owner, someone will want this.

I relocate them when it convenient.

Last one I caught I put in a 5-gallon bucket and walked about 20' away to get a lid. When I got back to the bucket he was gone.

Unfortunately, he was in a stack of straw bales under the plastic, and he went back into the bales.

Around here snakes love to get between bales.

They actually make great gifts for someone who is interested in herpetology or a snake as a pet. Easy to maintain, and if you decide you no longer want it, release it in the woods and not risking introducing an invasive species like burmese pythons.

Last one I dealt with wiggled up to a brush blind I was bow hunting. When it got 3 feet from my boots I leaned over and said "hay" it stopped and kinda looked up and I said "go away and I will not kill you" it turned right and went away...
