Took this old 3x3 mule deer last night in the Panhandle. Needed to thin some of these old guys out and this was a perfect candidate. Besides, he gave me a perfect broadside at around 120. Going to be some fine eating, he was rolling fat. Another notch for the 700 AAC 308

Is that a western rattler? I've seen a lot of diamondbacks but never one like that.

Left the bug for the hawks, it's a prairie rattler.

Any snake experts here. Got to looking closer at this snake and comparing photos, sure looks like a Mojave. I knew they were moving slowly east and had one confirmed in Howard Co back in 2002 by a veterinarian. This was in Lamb Co.

Sure looks like a Mohave to me. Much worse than a Diamondback and you better know the difference if you get bit b/c anti venom for a Diamondback won't help you at all if you're bit by a Mohave. Two different kinds of venom.

Prairie rattler...That one is a trophy. I've never seen one that big before.

Great deer BTW. I might have to recant my prairie rattler statement. PR's usually look more like the pattern of a copperhead. Mojave rattler? I don't know...We're a long way from the Mojave desert though, sooooo confused2

Mojave snakes are in SE New Mex and West Texas. I got in to one when working N of Van Horn back in the 80's. This one acted like a Mojave, real bad attitude before I ever got near him. Wish I had looked at his head better. Look at his patterns compared to other pics. They may be following the sand dunes. I know Mojaves are bad little dudes with their venom.
