He was probably around 5ft...was just off a county road on the way into our property a week ago in Dimmit County, so he got a hall pass.

If he was 1 inch on our side of the fenceline, he would have been dinner and a new belt!

Yep I would have gave him a pass into several pieces with a 12 gauge rifle

I am always surprised to see the number of folks who regard snakes as a Shoot On Sight reptile, regardless the setting.

Whether venomous or not...snakes play an important part in the ecosystem.

I certainly understand dispatching venomous snakes when they are found around a dwelling or outbuildings...where they might pose a threat to humans, pets or livestock.

But...'in the wild', they are generally beneficial and IF left alone, you will probably never see it again.

Nothing wrong with the occasional harvest of a snake for its meat or skin, but some folks will kill EVERY snake they see anywhere it exists. I suppose I don't see the need or logic in that?

I totally understand where you are coming from. I have given a lot of snakes hall passes...never even killed a non venomous one. And I think they do play a very important part in our ecosystem.
However, I've got kiddos and I do not want any venomous snake anywhere near our ranch house, or my home for that matter. If I see them close to where my kids may be playing, they die. End of story. I harvest the meat and the skin, and make sure I use what I kill.
