    some of you will like these pics...others will shiver....but either way, know that these snakes never made it back to the ground:roll_eyes: . the big ones were skinned and fried........the small ones taken to a snake farm by a friend of mine(who wouldnt touch them unless they were in a bucket....)
    this was in west texas while i was working in post and salt creek. at one point we caught 16 in one after noon just driving back roads and drinking cold beer after work.

    Hopefully one of these years I'll be able to try it. I'd rather eat them than run into a live one...:big_smile:

    Here in Illinois they cross breed with Water Moccasins, Copper Heads and Cotten Mouths. We call them, Cotten Head Rattle Moccasin, mean critters they are. Ever use one for bait? If fish didn't bite them, they could bite the fish.:big_smile:

    Yea, I used to like to drink a cold one while riding around catching Timber Rattlers and Copperheads....until they passed the "open container law". Snake hunting doesn't seem like so much fun sober!

    That is one crazy cowboy...saw the rattle snake round up out there...suppose you have to get used to seeing them.
