Took a little trip down to Webb Co for the last few days. In between work we managed to get a little play time. Had a good time but it sure is dry down there. Need some rain bad and soon.

Found a nice shed of a up and coming buck:

Ran into the headless variety of rattlesnake. Short on rattles but not too bad on length:

The FoxPro called in a coyote for a buddy of mine:

This cat came right into the call too:

Southtex, You've been hunting down there a while now. I always enjoy looking at your pictures. That Rattler is a BEAST, for sure. Good huntin' in the future.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

I do keep the snakes, eat them and keep the skins, so I don't feel like I'm wasting them. If it wouldn't be for the fact that my kids are running around the lease, I probably wouldn't kill them. Over the last couple of years the snake pictured is the smallest one that I have killed.......and I have some big Indigos running around.....I guess they're not efficient as I first thought in getting after the rattlers.

Or I have too many rattlers....

Here's a few from last year, with the exception of the last two, they're all different snakes.

Not if you had hunted that ranch for 30 years like he has.

my buddy was down in webb yesterday, they killed like 5 or 6 rattlers.

you ain't lying about us needing rain either, hope we get some soon


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.
