    Diamondback

    I just had to kill a 4ft. diamondback rattler..[11 rattles]...i dont like killing anything but it was in my dogs fenced in yard and jack was going nuts in and out at it, just a matter of time before he got bit...

    12 ga. 00buck took its head and made it disappear...creepy how long they move around with no head,,,[no rattles now either]...

    too bad...dont like doing that...

    but on the bright side, i've got one dandy 11 rattle earring...

    Aww...should of decapitated with a shovel (if relocation was not practical)

    I found a fresh roadkilled water moccasin, 6 or so years ago. I put the head in a jar of green rubbing alcohol and named him "lucky" I gifted it to a friend, couple years later. Sat on his book shelf until he moved a couple years ago. He asked me if i wanted it back, was tempted but that would of been wrong.

    Lucky has a new "forever" home...

    Skin him on the belly and dry it on a board. Made many a hat band like that.

    I sure hope so. Nothing stinks like a dead, rotten snake.
    Except rotten turtles with legs and heads sloughing off.

    Pick up a hoop net with two or three like that in it after 3 days and you will lose your groceries repeatedly.
    And invent new cuss words....

    Speaking things moving while dead, my little dog got a lizard (well at least the tail) in my shop a few days ago. That thing waved back and forth for around a half hour. CREEPY when you're holding it! Never did find the rest of the lizard after looking everywhere, so assume it got out of shop only to grow a new one again. The tail is 7" long so he was decent sized...

    NOTHING makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up like dealing with an angry rattler...

    NOTHING!


    looked really really pissed staring right at me,,,it was all i could do to get the dogs inside...

    but i couldnt leave it there, 3/4 acre yard, bushes, rocks, trees and a deck to hide under...

    When I was a kid - pretty young - some guys (men of the church) killed a rattlesnake by our church. I wanted the rattlers. They said I'd have to cut them off if I wanted them. So I did. With a dull pocket knife. It had 8 rattlers and a button. I probably still have that nasty thing in a matchbox somewhere.

    A friend of mine in Texas has to take a gun to the hen house now because there was a snake in there the other day. I would really hate to shoot a snake in a hen house.
