Cannot confirm any of that except that I did see the photo at the PX. Every year while training, we would kill at least a half dozen.
I've seen a diamondback that was ran over on a road in Shelby. About 6-8 inches of the head and tail hung over the tail gate of a mid 90s F-150. Head was as big as a softball, and body was bigger than my forearm(I'm a big man 6'4" 350lbs)

Wow! I don't think I have heard of any in Scott County. Was it in the extreme southern part?

Steele isn't too far from where I live. Never seen one around here (or heard of anyone seeing one). I will likely be surprised one day.

I live in east central Rankin county and I’ve only known of one around here in my life. A pulp wood hauler ran over him on Shiloh rd about 25 years ago. He was around 5’ if I remember correctly.
