Largest of the 5 I've seen in Oregon far. Thinking gopher snake?

No fish today, fished all the access points along the Mill Creek bike patch in Springfield (Dorris Ranch as well)

No "Timber Rattlers" to be found in Oregon.
There are 15 native snake species in Oregon. Of these, only the Western Rattlesnakehas poisonous venom that is dangerous to humans. There are four species of garter snakes. They inhabit a variety of habitats, including suburban areas.

Really like gopher snakes and try to move them if on our road.
Saw a green rattler once hiking on the Rubicon trail and saw a rattler that was at least 6ft hanging off post in the American River Canyon above Auburn Ca that someone shot.
Redding Ca had a 7Ft rattler that was killed last yr in the news
Yrs ago I was on a fright train going south(west) out of Dunsmuir when the engineer said there was a tire in the middle of the tracks. Tires bouncing under a fright train is not good especially when it weighs 11000 tons, as we got closer it moved and struck at the engine. Easily was 6ft.

We used to call the ones in the Siskiyous "timber rattlers". They were small but probably just a type of Western Rattlesnake. I saw a few when I was a kid.
