Can't believe that we killed a rattlesnake yesterday. This is Nov. right? He was just a little guy, but he was still poisonous.

For any of the PETA members who happen upon this post, we had to do this in self defense. I will and always have killed every poisonous snake that I see.

What part of MO do you live in? Can you tell us about the incident?

Not much to tell really. I work for the electric coop in our area. We have a John Deere skidder with an auger mounted on the back to dig pole holes and set poles. We use it whenever the terrain is to rough for a truck.

Well we was backing it off a hill to change out an old pole. There was a partially rotted log laying where we needed the skidder so I moved it out of the way. And there he was. Normally I just drive over stumps and logs with the skidder. But when you are backing up to an old pole that is still holding up a hot phase, you don't want the skidder to roll off a log and get into the pole.

This was in south east Mo. on the west side of Clearwater Lake.

As cold as it was today, I bet the snakes are in their holes.

And no we didn't skin it and eat it. There are too many other good things to eat, like cheeseburgers and potatoe soup.

Know exactly where you are. My folks had an "A Frame" cabin at Bluff View in the 70's. They are both gone now and I always wondered what ever happened that cabin. I'll bet the trees are pretty down in your area.

Card carrying member in good standing of
People Eating Tasty Animals (PETA)

However I did grow up on Rattlesnake Mountain,
this side of Badger creek.

I do hope you dressed it out.

The meat is very tasty,
somewhat reminiscent of chicken.

The hide, head and buttons do
makes a fair adornment for the hat.

Game taken in fair chase
and utilized or consumed,
is not a waste of our gifts.

Guess he was to young to know what time it was. That made him really dangerous.
