I do a lot of outdoor photography and I am looking for a spot with a good number of Rattlers, Timber or Pigmy to photograph.  Does anyone here see them regularly that would be willing to point me in their direction? It's been quite a few years since I ran across my last one.  (August is typically a bad time to spot them due to the heat. )  How many people here have seen one lately?

I realize this probably will not help, but I saw 7 this past summer in the mountains of eastern Kentucky (Daniel Boone National Forest, near Morehead, KY). Found them mostly in rocky, glade-like areas on mountaintops. Wasn't looking specifically for them...was just doing forestry research.

Yeah, doesn't help much. But still pretty neat! The only time I've found them is when I'm not looking.

Daniel Boone forest has timber rattlers but how many and where they are in there I dont know and dont really want to know

Do you mean Daniel Boone State Forest (between STL and CoMo) of Daniel Boone NF in Kentucky?

If it's the latter, there a bunch on the hilltops around Cave Run Lake. I nearly got bitten on two occasions, but it was worth it. They're pretty cool critters.

Go to Lead Mine North of Buffalo Missouri. Go YY to Jug Town Road. This is one area seen many.

Go West of Beliar, Missouri on 5HWY. There is a Old Quarry owned by Leonard's about a mile off the highway.

Seen Timber Rattlers both places many times.
