This beast didnít rattle as I stepped passed him and I never knew he was there. My brother saw him go behind me under our camper. A few minutes later I saw him go under some layout blinds we have at the front of our camper. We convinced my son to use a T-Post to lift the front end of the layout blinds, this is where we thought we would find him. Sure enough, he was coiled up when we unleash on him. Iím 6í2 and this rattle snake is 5 feet plus!

They won't rattle while they're trying to flee. It was trying to get away undetected.

That's true, but when they stop, which they often do, you better watch out. I had a 4 ft rattler a couple of weeks ago that fled then decided that I was the intruder. She coiled and raised her head about a foot and a half buzzing the whole time. It looked like a king cobra.

The rest of the story: killed her. I have dogs and humans around the house. I will never apologize for killing a rattler or any poisonous snake.
