    When I was in the Marines down at 29Palms in SoCal in the 70's, we had an overnight bivouac out in the desert. Some of those crazy jarheads decided to go rattler hunting and found a bunch and killed them. They cut the heads and rattles off, skinned them and the damn bodies would curl around their arms. F*ck that!!! They cooked them over the open fire pit and of course said it tasted like chicken. They hung the skins on the front bumpers of the duece and a half trucks.

    If you don't practice...you'll sound like it. And, if you don't tune, your life will sound like it, too. Listen to the intervals. That's where it all hides from you.....

    I usually relocate, but, if they insist on fighting, I'm not the one who is going to lose.

    Rattlesnakes at my New Mexico place are small and not very aggressive, so, easy to relocate.

    Rattlesnakes here, SE Arizona, are the larger Diamondbacks, they aren't very receptive to relocation and, at least two have lost their heads over it.....if they not had been on my back patio.....coiled up.....but, they were.
