I will say though, he tasted great on the grill. I would eat another one, but I wouldn't kill one simply for that reason.
My brother-in-law was like that. I used to keep a small box of matches in my vest when we were fishing. I would wait till we were in some "snakey" cover, and then give the matchbox a shake. You would be amazed at how much that sounds like a rattler, and how fast a 300lb guy could move!pallof said:when i see a snake, ANY snake i scream like a school girl, pull up my skirt and run. they just freak me out. no way i'd ever go looking for them.
funny story....a few years ago i was spring gobbler hunting and got to this area that just looked "snakey". lots of boulders i had to walk over. about half way across the rocks i hear "bzzzzzzzz!" i jumped and sprinted about 10 yards then stopped and looked back. then again, right under my feet "Bzzzzzzzzzzz!" i jump and run again. now i'm hyperventilating and shaking. then a third time "bzzzzzzzzzzzz!" only then did i realize my phone was on vibrate and i was receiving a call. i looked around hoping no one saw what just happened. they would think i was crazy!
