Don Ward, AKA Itsvirgil, makes snakeskin pens and blanks. I was planning to send him some Copperhead, as we usually have an abundance of them. This year, and I don't know if the King Snakes are really doing their jobs or if all the rain has kept them hidden, but I haven't seen a single Copperhead. The lake and creek banks here are usually littered with them. Strange.
