Being the Home of the PA Grand Canyon, it is prime Rattlesnake country. People actually go hunting the snakes for the Morris Competition, but they catch them safely & return them to their habitat after the scores are in.
Morris PA is only 12 miles from Wellsboro, so one could visit the event & the PA Grand Canyon in one full & exciting day!(a.k.a. PA Gorge)

This was the schedule for 2010...but stays the same each year.

We attend Morris Rattlesnake Round-up every year for several years now. Coming from Lebanon, Pa. it makes us feel good to see how such a small community gathers to help the Fire Department. We look forward to it each year. Very well organized. Thank you Morris Fire Dept. & everyone associated with the round-up.

1963 record for largest rattlesnake
by: rick sargent

I was born on June 8th, 1963. On that day, my father caught the largest snake and the most snakes for the hunt. I would like to know if there are any pictures of the competition at Morris that day.

Brrrrr...Rattlesnake Round-Up
by: Patricia

Hi Carla,

I have to admit Carla, I wouldn't be one of the people entering the Rattlesnake hunt. I do love seeing the photo's you submitted and all the crafts and especially the beautiful lake.

I'm wondering if the 2011 Rattlesnake Round-up is this coming weekend, which would be June 17th through Father's Day. I hope it wasn't last weekend and the event is over for 2011.

Thanks for letting us know about it and all the great photo's.

Patricia
