We went rattlesnake hunting in Eastern Oklahoma near Blocker in the San Bois Mts. We caught 7 that day and I was filming the hunt when Doug, the professional rattlesnake handler and his son let one get away from him and come at me while I was trying to shoot (with a camera) another guy holding a snake.

Don't care much for poison snakes.I have killed 2 a 39" western diamond back and a 12" in camp. we ate the big one
fried like chewing nylon cord off of a chicken rib. at least those are big enough to see.

Yup, and they say that they can strike half their lengths distance from where they are coiled. :eek:
