This beast didnít rattle as I stepped passed him and I never knew he was there. My brother saw him go behind me under our camper. A few minutes later I saw him go under some layout blinds we have at the front of our camper. We convinced my son to use a T-Post to lift the front end of the layout blinds, this is where we thought we would find him. Sure enough, he was coiled up when we unleash on him. Iím 6í2 and this rattle snake is 5 feet plus!

They won't rattle while they're trying to flee. It was trying to get away undetected.

That's true, but when they stop, which they often do, you better watch out. I had a 4 ft rattler a couple of weeks ago that fled then decided that I was the intruder. She coiled and raised her head about a foot and a half buzzing the whole time. It looked like a king cobra.

The rest of the story: killed her. I have dogs and humans around the house. I will never apologize for killing a rattler or any poisonous snake.

I was the one that saw it initially. Couldn't have been more than 2 feet behind him. He may need to change his dress code, but he almost had to change his shorts!

Yeah, he was going to eat you. He was slow trailing you...seen it a hundred times. You better hope he don't have a mate. Snakes don't forget....they got a memory like an elephant. A wild elephant, not a circus one.

Great job and thanks for posting. Real easy to Tan if you kept the hide.


I once drank muddy water out of a hoof print and was dang glad to get it.

Too many bullet holes in him to do anything with it. We did keep the rattle and gave it to my brothers grandson. I made him promise me that he would not put the rattle on his grandmothers pillow.
