No worse than the rest of southwest Texas. The good news is unless you reach for one or step on one, they let you know they are about to bite you before they do.

my lease is near Comstock (Val Verde County) and we have not seen a rattle snake in the 3 years we've been on the place. But I still wear my snake boots, everyone makes fun of me but "oh, well". I'm sure they are out there.

Yep. Similar to cockroaches. If you see 1, there are 100 more you didn't see.

Some areas have a lot and some areas not many at all. I have not seen or killed one on my place in Goliad County, yet. I watch for them but have not seen one yet. These came off a place in La Salle County in just over 2 yr period. They do not always rattle either.

There used to be....I trapped/shot 362 of them off in less than 3 yrs. I saw less snakes after I killed a bunch of hogs though. confused2

I used to catch every one I see and absolutely loved hunting them. Perfect time to hunt snakes is the same time that antlers are on the ground. I have to be in the right mood to mess with one now. I am more likely to catch a non-poisonous one to show the kids now than a rattler.

A friend of mine used to catch them and use the skins to make belts, buckles, other stuff. He always had live ones in an aquarium and would occasionally take one out to demonstrate how to handle and catch them. He had one on the coffee table and had a very close call - almost lost his manhood. He never got bit, but he got rid of them after that!
