While out exploring today I found this little guy wandering around. About a 3 footer just sunning itself.

Did you bag it? I generally kill buzz worms on sight, but with all the new growth out there, the rodents are going to go off, along with everything else. Probably not a bad idea to let a few live this year.

    "One must learn to live in harmony with Nature. My brother the rattlesnake hunts as do I, with the eye of the predator. We are of the same spirit."

    Something a wise old Indian might say.


    "Don't fucking kill them, especially if you stumble across them in their natural environment."
    Something I say to people who kill out of ignorance.

    All creatures serve a purpose in an ecosystem, man ain't supposed to understand it all, and never will.

    So you admit you kill out of ignorance?

    What a shame.

    "Your spirit will not ascend to the hunting grounds of our forefathers."

    Another old Indian saying, maybe.

    It's still alive and well. It was just out trying to earn a living like the rest of us. No need to kill something that isn't a threat.

    I'm kinda surprised rattlesnakes aren't protected. According to FNG, you don't need a license to "take" rattlesnakes. I could not find any other laws or regulations protecting them with a google search.

    I used to think they should be left alone until my dog got bit.
    There is rattlesnake venom vaccine that is supposed to work good for dogs. My vet says he has treated several vaccinated dogs that were bitten and they did quite well and didn't even require the expensive antivenom treatment.
    We have been vaccinating all of our dogs for the last 6-years. Our lab/pit mix that was bitten had an allergic reaction to the bite (she was also allergic to bees and wasps). She recovered from the bite after an expensive vet bill. I ultimately think the bite shortened her life by a few years.
    I still don't like the idea of killing them, but I have killed a few. They are a pain, but they do taste good too.
