We killed a nice size one opening weekend up there. Kids found it so they got to shoot it. It was coiled at least.

I found a good stick, picked it up and put it in a brushpile about 20 yards off the road.

Haven’t seen as many posted on here this year. I personally haven’t seen one this season, but know they’re there.

Texas is a year around snake state.....especially the farther south and west you go.....any sunny day they can be out.......

We have seen more this year than in the past. My dog managed to bite a rattle snake and live to tell about it last trip.

We need a good freeze to put them into hibernation!

That is somewhat a myth. They still come out on cold days when it warms to 55 or more. They just don't move far from the den so most aren't seen unless you go looking for them in the wrong places. It has been well below freezing and then when it warms up, some come out up here in Montague. You would have to jump on them for anything to happen though. I don't let the kids roam around anymore as they have ran into several in Dec when I thought they would be hibernating. Kids normally play in places we don't though. Myself, son and daughter have missed stepping on rattlebugs by inches in the past year. I have killed 5 this year.
