If you don’t already know, I live in a town that is known for holding the Largest Rattlesnake Roundup and people from all over the world show up just to see these rattlers and perhaps even eat some!
We hunted today for a little bit, just me and the man so I’m sharing photos today instead of video. Believe it or not, I’m actually way more scared of a bee than I am of a rattler. For reals!
First we have to find dens and they are everywhere around here unfortunately. We took the 4-wheeler with a box attached to put the snakes in, some snake catchers and away we went. Looking along the little bank, we spot a snake……can you see him?
Then my man slowly reaches in there with catchers to grab him……very slowly….
Squeezing the catcher fast, he gets him……only, it’s NOT a rattlesnake! It’s just some old harmless snake so we let him go.
After hunting for awhile, we do find a few snakes and it’s time to transport them to the barrel where we hold them until it’s time for the roundup!
Here they are in the box we threw them in after catching them.
In the barrel, getting a sense of his surroundings and not happy.
I don’t know but there is nothing like the sound of a dozen rattlesnakes shaking those rattlers in a hollow metal barrel! CHILLING!! I can only imagine how it’s gonna sound when there’s 50!!
So until next time folks………………
