Never made it out for snakes.

Never made it out for snakes. My boss caught a snapping turtle fishing near Pueblo, and gave it to me to cook. I need to find a better way to process them, but I really liked the taste. Hope to get my archery deer this season, 2 weekends left. Hopefully money will be a little better next year and I will have a chance to get a rattler next season.

Rattlesnakes

Hey Myke would you be willing to take on a team mate?  I've done some rattlesnake hunting in Oklahoma and they were little guys.  I have only been a few times but I love it.  If intersted, please reply.

Thanks,

I'm interested. I have a ton

I'm interested. I have a ton of stuff to do this summer and not sure if I have time but I'd really like to try as well. Lived here more than half my life on the western side and never even seen one yet. 

On my list of things I'd like to get though.

Only made it rattlesnake

Only made it rattlesnake hunting once this year. We saw a red racer, about 7 feet long, but it was a racer and I couldn't get close enough before it disappeared. Went to my barn tonight to check the chickens and caught a small rattler. About 2 feet long. Got him soaking in water now. Only 5 days left in the season, so I imagine this will be my only taste of rattler this year. Any of you guys still want to get out we have 9 months to plan a trip.

Been a while since I've been

Been a while since I've been on. I finally got a rattlesnake, about 75 feet from my front door. We moved out to Yoder and I went to the barn to feed rabbits and chickens and there was a rattler. Taste was better than expected. About a month later I barely clipped a bull snake on my way home. Stopped to check on him and he wasn't going to make it, so I fried him up too. Definately going out again next summer.
