My brother with the severely underdeveloped sense of fear was at it again yesterday. Caught this little rattle bug on the way in from working cattle last night. 5ft long with 15 rattles. Said he wished he'd had a stick with him to help catch it... got a little hairy with just his bare hands. It spent the night in a bucket and he decided to dispatch it this morning since his wife wasn't in the mood to let him keep it. She can be a spoil sport like that.





To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Wives just don't get it. And when it comes to playing with snakes, I don't get it.

Hard to keep them in captivity once their that old. Usually have to be very young almost to young and raise them from there... most still don't adapt well to it but some do if they have a big enough cage

I got a nice one from under a mud pump one time, dispatched it, put it on ice and drove home. 4 hours later at about 4am I got home and just put it in the freezer "temporarily"......Wife was not a happy camper when she opened the freezer. Does the term stark raving, screaming, frothing at the mouth, lunatic mean anything to ya. She's an ex now, but we're friends.

Lord if your listening I promise I will never do that again!

Lot's of things. But primary issue is a very underdeveloped sense of self preservation. How he lived to be 50 I'll never know. confused2 What's really bizarre is that he's got more common sense than any person I know. Just doesn't have the same "Fight or Flight" response normal people do. Great guy to have around when things go to hell cause nothing fazes him. Just don't open a bucket or tow sack if he hands one too you. scared

No thanks. My uncle caught one about that size a while back. Threw it in the freezer still alive and waited for it to do. He coiled it up in a striking pose. When he sent me to the freezer i pee'd a little bit.
