I've never heard of anything like that; permission on private property to do it I guess.

However, had an interesting deal last year. I got a call from a neighbor about a couple of professional snake hunters who were going to hunt his place and wanted to know about mine. I'm loaded with them but don't worry about them. I said OK and told him where the best places would be. About a week later he called and said they had backed out on the deal. I asked why and he said the limit for selling meat and skins had been reached for my region. I had no idea about limits.


Without a sense of urgency, nothing ever happens.

Boy, if I say "sic em", you'd better look for something to bite. Sam Shelley, Rancher Muleshoe Texas 1892-1985 RIP

yes when the prices are right you can make a little money. I do it more because I enjoy it. You really pay a lot more attention to the ground and find a lot of neat rocks and arrowheads. In Oklahoma you have to have a hunting license and a reptile permit. I don't know where you are located but id be interested in coming out and catching some snakes. Let your neighbor know too! you can contact me at 580-228-4200. Its a Oklahoma number but I live in DFW area.

A snake stick and a 5 gallon bucket or pillow case, permission to hunt.

90% of the rattlers on my place are timber rattlers so I don't hunt them BUT sometimes they accidentally run out in front of the tractor/bush hog or build dens right in the path of my dozer..... violin

We had a big den on a ranch I quail hunted south of Sterling city, some guys wanted to go catch a few one day, I stayed back & out of the way but they caught 7 big rattlers within a 75 yd stretch and had a few more that got away. One of the seasons I was on that place, we killed 52 rattlesnakes in the first 3 weeks of quail season (18,000 acre ranch with 18- 20 members) place was loaded with snakes. Was a miracle no dogs were bit (or people).
