me and my buddy were at my ranch this past weekend dove hunting. every year we say
were going to plant for doves and we never do and regret it. It was around 830/9am Saturday morning and
we ventured to far west side of property to check out our neighbors set up bc they were blasting
off all morning like crazy. We were each waking around Seperate sides of a typical centex clump of bushes and my
buddy yelled rattlesnake! he blasted it w his shotgun but it was scary and a good reminder.
We both were totally all focused on the sky and birds and it's a good reminder to pay attn to where you walk!
bad thing too was he left his snake boots in truck and was only wearing his ankle high hiking boots. He said the snake was trying to get away from him but it also didn't rattle until he shot at it which is scary. I think they don't want to harm anyone unless your about to step on it or shoot at it obviously. big fat guy too!
this is the first I've seen out there since last summer when I saw one slither across a dirt road.
