Snakes!

Sounds like you both can help each other out. He can study and relocate snakes you don't want on your property. Win win.
On occasion that might work , but in some/most instances the wait for arrival for removal is not feasible as immediate action is needed... but will keep it in mind for when there is no immediate threat . also sometimes keeping a rattler at bay can be very dangerous..

I didn't mean you find them for him and wait for him to arrive. He would be on your property (with your permission of course) hunting/studying snakes and if he finds a rattler then he can bag it and relocate it. making your property safer and he gets some more research.

He also said he would like to be able to work on some private property.

"Hi Gary-
I live in Poway, probably not far from you (I hunt the hills often and know the best habitats). You can get ahold of me any time to deal with your rattlesnakes. Hell, I'd love to set up a monitoring system on private land - I could remove any unwanted snakes for you and get to play with s makes at the same time"


All you have to do is allow him on your land.

I don't want to speak for the crowd, but I'd like to think that the majority of us are not indiscriminately killing every snake we see. That's certainly not what I do, and not the impression I want to project. I live on 8 acres in a very remote area with miles of native habitat in all directions. The only time I'll kill a rattlesnake is if it has made it's way to my abode. Doesn't happen very often, but when it does, the rattlesnake is dispatched. When I come across them on my property, I'll usually persuade them to move in a different direction, provided they are far enough away from the casa. I never kill non-venomous snakes. I fully appreciate the need for a balanced ecosystem, but I temper that with the knowledge that I am the king of my domain, and as the benevolent dictator certain decisions are made with the safety of myself and my family in mind. (By the way, I do kill every black widow spider I see. Those things just give me the heebie jeebies.)

That's a possibility..for sure... but sometimes my dog roams the property and at times he's not mr friendly .. kinda has a protective nature...

While my dog was being treated for a rattle snake bite in Gardnerville Nevada, my wife had an interesting conversation with another woman in the bathroom of a restaurant. Wife tells the lady what happened to our dog and all the stress. The lady proceeds to tell my wife how her dog decided it would be cool to take a piss on a rattler and proceeded to get bit bit on his pecker. Ouch. And no my wife did not ask her if she sucked the venom out.

Gary, no worries either way - you can pm me any time
baajandy - glad to hear; nobody needs to go around dispatching snakes out in the bush for no reason (and I didn't think people were doing that, for the record)

If you live next to an open area, you'll likely encounter the occasional snake. You can kill it, but by doing so you're getting close to the thing you're worried about hurting you (kinda like retrieving a lure from a shark's mouth). And even if you successfully kill it without getting bit in the process, as long as your house remains near viable habitat, there will be more snakes around (babies will move in to populate the area). Better to protect your house by removing junk piles and cover that attract rodents. Lots of fisherman enjoy looking for snakes (like me) - the hobbies are similar in a remarkable number of ways - snakes (including rattlers) are another really neat part of the natural world.

There's an old saying that applies here: When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging!
Just stop posting on my threads Biggest T.....then you don't have to listen to me.....or is that Biggest Ass?.....and what hole am I digging?....I have a 28 year old Daughter with Downs syndrome that likes to walk the yard.....she doesn't understand the snake bite thing and that she will die because of the Heart surgeries shes gone through........so just STFU........I don't post on your threads.....don't put your 2 cents in on mine.......

(how do you feel when people keep a black seabags, a short halibut, or overlimit on a species?).
PLEASE keep all the black seabags, and white seabags too. I don't care if they are big or small....kill them all.
...do you know how much damage one BLACK SEAbag, or even one whitesea bag can do to a engine. :D

I would never throw a trash over the rattler, then it's anybody's guess where he's at under the trash bag.. kinda like Russian roulette..

Its always the black and white seabags that i see...these other seabags, I have never had a issue with. I think they sink out and hug the bottom, so no worries of sucking them up....but if I see one at the surface, I'm killing it.

The ones that are really dangerous, are the colorless seabags....they can get you even when you are not targeting them.

The mixed seabag, or some call them the gray seabag, they can be a issue also...


Mexican Seabag...

I think this is a Persian Seabag. Maybe snake guy Jeff knows? :)

Asian Seabag
