Couple pair of boots and a belt, at least.

What a thoroughbred. Would not kill.

My Grandpa was in the Pacific in WWII. They were clearing some jungle to build an airstrip and found a nest of Cobras. I asked him hat they did, and he said "we weren't messing around with them and through a grenade on them".

I like snakes, but if I encountered that on my property there is only one correct answer as far as I'm concerned...Benelli:

That's what I don't understand.

It's already the biggest, meanest snake on the continent, and it has to be venomous, too?

Link Posted: 9/28/2012 5:26:34 AM EDT
Y'all are over reacting. You should go up and pet him while his mouth is full and he can't bite you.


I'd seriously bust out the 12ga on that fucker.

Yup. Empty the tube on that bastard. I have no problem with rat snakes, but when the serpent version of Jaws makes its way onto my land, all bets are off.
Link Posted: 9/28/2012 5:48:28 AM EDT
That is a big ass snake.

Choot'em.
Link Posted: 9/28/2012 5:57:08 AM EDT
anyone have a guestimate on length and girth of that thing. that rabbit has to be 4 inches thick at least and it's thicker than the rabbit. 5 - 6" girth and maybe 7 to 8' long? Think I would be close. man, that thing looks solid

They serve a purpose.

To illustrate this, I will provide the example of the Sweetwater and Odessa Texas area, where they have had the "Rattlesnake Round Up" for many years where thousands of snakes are capured for this event. A few years ago the rodent population grew so large due to lack natural predators that they actually had an outbreak of Yersinia Pestis (Bubonic Plague). This disease ca be transmitted to humans by a flea that has bitten an infected rodent, and is dependent on large rodent populations, rats and prairie dogs are known vectors.


Rattle snakes will not bite you if you don't mess with them. They are very reclusive and can be avaoided by making lots of noise when you wlak though likely rattlecnake habitat. Wearing boots and sbake gaiters is also wise. I would not kill a rattlesnake unless it was somewhere where it could endanger livestock or children. Cotton mouths, on the other hand....

Not familiar with the Mojave flavor of rattler, are ya?

A couple of weeks ago I was damn near tagged by a coon tail that gave absolutely no warning. The first time i was aware of him was as he uncoiled toward my leg and hissed. More and more we're hearing stories about how Western Diamondbacks aren't rattling or warning...they just strike.

As for the bastard that nearly got me...he lives in my office now.



Link Posted: 9/28/2012 6:16:00 AM EDT
I hope that snake was taken to a taxidermist and stuffed after being killed.

That would make one hell of a coffee table conversation piece!

Link Posted: 9/28/2012 6:17:26 AM EDT
I would like to see the video of that snake striking that rabbit. Man that is a huge snake, would look great in a terrerium, a large terrerium.

Hmm...getting some strange readings from my B.S. meter. Got sauce on this image?

I would sit that snake down and start a conversation about diet and exercise.

Is that snake even aware of his BMI?

Sad when you see a snake just let himself go like that.

There' fixed it for you.

Back in the '80's, I caught one of my gun crews at Fort Sill screwing around with one about that size with a stick.
