    Hope they had some shot shells!


    TX deer hunting is kind of a joke. They have auto feeders that drop grain every day at a certain time so the animals know when and where to get food - so do the hunters. Saw lots of tree blinds not 20 yards from the feeders.

    Well, 26 rattlers would make a nice batch of reptile sausage!

    What about the boots? Thinking 26 rattle snakes should be enough to make a decent pair of boots...

    sadly, this is how some people want it to be like by privatizing our public lands even here in the northwest. In Oregon, right now.... an entire state forest is up for sale.

    Looks like lunch to me. But yeah, that would have been a bad trip if they didn't rebuild their blind.

    Kill all the snakes!

    And then people wonder why they are overrun by gophers, "sage rats", mice, rabbits and so on. :rolleyes:

    I dislike snakes as much as the next person - it gives me the willies just to see a pic like that - but they do serve a purpose.

    No rattlesnakes on my mountain - too cold and wet - but the local garter snakes do really like the transformer that feeds my house (underground utilities). I leave them alone.

    Every time I've hunted in TX, my blinds have always been elevated.... I do recall the ranch having one blind that was on the ground though.

    But it's true. Feeders everywhere with the binds lined up within 100 yards of them.

    Rattlers are probably one of the reasons they are almost all up in the air:D


    I've seen the same, mostly in the air but have also seen some that I would call more of a screen made on the ground and using long sticks to make a wall.
