I had a great morning/afternoon. I took a client out hunting with his dog I'm training. He's a great guy about 30. [not bad looking either! ] This guy is your typical city boy [doctor] that wants to get into hunting. I had all the gear packed up to take to the ranch when he came to pick me up. I loaded my gear in his New Caddy SUV and off we headed. I took my AR with me upfront in case I spied any coyotes on the way out to the ranch.

We're visiting and carrying on when I spot a coyote on the hill above us. I have him stop and I jump out with my AR, snap the magazine in and lay one in the chamber and fired twice and got the dog. The guy is literally hopping up and down. "YOU GOT IT, YOU GOT IT" [it was pretty comical]. I turned to him and asked him "You knew I wasn't your typical 6' blond right?" We both got a good chuckle out of that but then headed off towards the ranch again.

When I turned down the road to my ranch no kidding right in front of me was another coyote. Maybe 50 yards. I got out shot, dead coyote. My client was laughing and taking pictures saying "NICE SHOT" I was a little embarrassed since I gut shot the coyote. I told him to be careful where he posted those pictures because I didn't need PITA breathing down my throat!

So we work the dogs for a while, all is going well when my dog slams on point where there was no planted birds [mind you there is wild birds but we're not legally suppose to shoot those] so I touch my client on his arm to get his attention [I was working the dogs, he was shooting - pretty decent shot too]. He stops and right when he stops my dog stands on his back legs and a rattler struck at him. I yelled "BACK SONNY" and Sonny [my dog] took two big steps back. I nudged my client and he's in shock so I grabbed his shot gun and shot the rattler. He looks at me and asks "Do you think it would have bit the dog?" Ah Duh!

So I'm pretty shock up about my dog pointing a rattle snake. My client's digging around trying to retrieve the rattles when we hear a 2nd rattle [the sound for those who have never heard it will send shivers from the top of your head to the tip of your toes!] I grabbed my client back and run and stake out the dogs. The 2nd rattler was only about 10 feet [at most] away from the first. This one was under some strange abandoned contraption that looks as if it was made to separate wheat. The snakes down there but we can't see it. My client really wanted to shoot a rattler himself so I ran back to the house grabbed what tools I could find which was a mop, an extension cord and a hammer and came barreling back. I made a make shift lasso and I roped the contraption and pulled it towards me and the snake was coiled up. [My snake was coiled when I shot it so I actually shot its head and tail off which ruined the rattles]. I didn't want to ruin the coils for my client so I started teasing the snake with the mop. The snake lunges towards us and my client shoots it.

He took pictures of me with the snakes, I'll post them when he emails them to me.

Anyway, how'd your day go? I'm the top of the food chain BABY! Someone needs to make me a sammich.

Great story. -0.5 for admitting to riding around in a Cadillac. If you'd been in a proper vehicle, you would have had a rope already.

However, +0.5 for "Adapt, Improvise, Overcome."

10.0!

IBT Snake Apologists!

I don't mind rattlers so much - it's the copperheads and moccasins that get me. Coral snakes, well, they have to gnaw on you a while to get the venom in and rattlers usually give you some warning, but those copperheads and mocs, they just zap you out of the clear blue.

Good job on the coy dogs and the snakes, Patty!

well done. I trust your client was suitably impressed.

Does he understand just how unpleasant a rattler bite can be?

You made a makeshift lasso with an extension cord, a mop, and a hammer? And it worked? And you knew how to throw it effectively?

For a chick you've got pretty big balls.
