has a hell of a rattle! Usually the buttons break off before they get that long! (Well...at least here in the east.)
Thank you Bob,
Although I have done a fair amount of hiking in the southwest, this was the first time that I came face to face with a big snake. The odd thing was that the next day, I came across another snake.
Lose the head, keep the rattler, feast on the meat.
You're starting to sound like Bear Grylls Marc! I love it!
They say it tastes just like chicken. Does it?
LOL, CJ. Bear Grylls is my family's hero.
Have to confess, never had snake, but had alligator meat. It's a little gamy, but if done right it could taste like chicken.
But seriously, if I found myself out there hungry, I wouldn't dream of letting this guy get away.
I had some once--many years ago at a restaurant in Atlanta that served various game meats. Frankly, I don't recall what it tasted like. I didn't hate it.
