Killed 4 recently at the lease. Two at camp, one near my blind and one on the road. The small snake was laying under our gate to camp. I walked up to the gate and started opening the lock when I heard a faint rattle. If I didn't step on the small snake I had to be at least be standing ringt next to the dang thing. The big one was laying next to steps leading into my cabin. I get lazy and don't always wear my snake boots, but luckily I was wearing them that day.

I e killed a nice size rattler right by a lease gate before too. Makes ya think twice about not wearing snake boots. Also killed a small rattler right by camp while cooking on the grill.

Scare the crap out of me, every time. I usually scream like a girl then blow them away.


An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

My wife saw the whole thing and thought it appropriate to crack a joke. She said “boy it’s a good thing you don’t wear white underwear”. I thought I handled the situation calm, cool and collectively, but she said otherwise. Talk about adding insult to injury.

We opened the gas grill one day and one was on the rack, not big, but big enough to make ya jump. We lit it, then proceeded to shoot as he cane out. He went right back on the grill as dinner

Why’d you kill them? Couldn’t you have left them alone or just nudged them along?

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