Farley enjoyed the outdoors and passed his outdoor knowledge to his sons Arthur D and Farley Jr. There is one account from Farley Jr. that they were walking in the woods when the cucumber smell of copper heads was all around them. It was dark out and they could not see but they could here the rustling of the leaves. Farley took a branch and beat the ground until the rustling stopped and they went on home. The next day, Farley and his two youngest sons went back to look at the spot were they had been the night before and found several dead copper heads that Farley had killed. Farley was also known for snapping the heads off of snakes by cracking them like a whip.
