9 foot 3 inch Eastern diamond back rattle snake

Post by GHOSTMAN on Sat Mar 02, 2013 7:43 pm

While hog hunting in a tent blind (crazy) in Midway, GA recently this young man and his dad had this huge Eastern rattler poke his head under the tent and they took it out thank God.
It had 22 rattles and a head that measured 4.5" across!! We have rattle snakes on the land but, hope I never see one like this ever!! WOW! This is huge for a rattler in this part of the USA.

I'll stay up here I'm Wisconsin where you only have to worry about bears and frost bite. Not a big fan of snakes specially the big ones. How did they kill it.

Something such as this easing into the tent............. something's gonna happen and I'm going to be un-hancing the AO damn Skippy to regroup and take it out. That's why the machete stays razor sharp and on my person at all times not to mention the side arm heat!
