I had just sat down in my blind hoping to find a hog when I looked out the window to two pretty good sized rattlers on the rocks. I managed 3 of the 4 laying there. The fourth made it into a hole. The biggest was about 4 1/2 ft.

Definitely snake boot time! The buzz bugs are out and around, so step carefully and watch where you step!!

Another good reminder for snake boots, caution, awareness, rat shot, etc. Man I hate those suckers.

saw my first snake of the year in the pasture, thankfully not a rattler, just a harmless snake

Nasty, nasty. Be careful doing that, especially if you're by yourself.
