Be careful out there guys especially you turkey hunters.. Out movin some feeders today I decided to look for a shed or two and came way to close to this sucker.. If my foot had come down it would have been right on top of him.. He was coiled up and not even rattling but luckily I had my shotgun like I normally do in the warmer months... You cant see all of me in the pic but for a little reference I'm 6'2".. He had 10 buttons and looked like a few missing

It's against the law to kill timber rattlers, but I think that's a diamondback isn't it? I think he's ok....

diamondbacks are legal and all I've ever seen around here.. but ANY rattlesnake that doesn't rattle is getting killed if I see them, just too dangerous IMO

crazy times, y'all be careful out there!

here's one theory,
"Normally when a rattlesnake announces its presence, people kill it," Reaves said. "The snakes that aren't genetically predisposed to rattling are the ones that are left to breed. They rely on their natural camouflage and stay still so predators won't notice them. Basically what's happening is we're breeding a rattlesnake that doesn't intend to rattle."

http://www.azcentral.com/news/articles/2010/07/20/20100720arizona-silent-rattlesnakes.html

same goes for the large population of pigs, when they hear the rattle its like ringing the dinner bell.
