There is the full video that we found on YouTube, it was uploaded to the channel called NKFherping, and already has over 22 thousand views in less than 2 months of being on YouTube.

One of my favorite parts of the video is around the 3-minute mark after one of the guys gets stung by a scorpion, they find a very scary and poisonous-looking red snake that is called the Red Milk snake and apparently, it is harmless...  This is actually really comforting to know, but I still think I would absolutely freak out in person if I saw one of those snakes.

They also find an Osage Copperhead snake that is poisonous around the 7-and-a-half minute mark of the video, now this snake would definitely scare the you know what out of me if I found it.

One of the things I will say that I gathered from watching this video is that in order to really encounter these snakes you have to go looking for them. If you are just staying on the trails and not turning over logs and rocks you should never really encounter these snakes.
