I have never seen a moccasin that long in my life, probably a rat snake or king snake

That's what I was leaning towards also, Texas Rat Snake or as
lotsa folks call'em Chicken Snake...

He crawled in a hole under the step plate on my hog trap, little did he know I had to move it...

He stayed in the hole while I fumbled around an hour or so workn on removing the trap & getting my feeder filled....

I thought king snakes were colorful. I thought mocassins were short (3' or less) and near water.

I also thought that the only good snakes/spiders/snitches were dead ones...but what do I know.

Probably not a cottonmouth as they rarely get over 4 foot in length. However.......I shot one many years ago that turned out to be a record for East Baton Rouge Parish at 6 foot 1 inch. It was to be put in the museum of natural science at LSU. Snake somehow vanished after going to the taxidermist. If I can dig up the polaroid of it, I will post.
I would say the one you got there is a good one to have around.....varmint eater of the king snake variety.
