Pretty sure a 12ga to the head works just as well. And I don't have to catch it first.

I knew you could do that but I'll be damned if I try it. Couldn't get to my gun once snake had me blocked from door under my truck. I was filling feeders in the summer. He crawled up in the shade under my truck. I climbed up in the bed and got a hammer and hit him in the head with it. Then blew his head off once I got to my shotgun. That head couldn't bite anyone either.

OK so if you find yourself in a "rattlesnake situation" you're supposed to walk over to the snake, step on it's head and fling it around by the tail. Next time I find myself in a "rattlesnake situation" I'll put my gun down and give it a try, because it's the only correct way to kill one. Yeah, right.

Speaking with a Park Ranger in the Grand Canyon some years ago, he said roughly 90% of the people who get bit by poisonous snakes know the snake is there and don't avoid it. They're either toying with it, trying to take it's picture, or otherwise getting in its' way.

How to properly kill a rattlesnake? Shoot it from a safe distance works for me.
