No it was sunning on the patio.  They were cleaning gutters (effin' hackberry tree) and saw him.  Mrs. BMB got the .410 derringer whilst BMB Jr. held him with a rake, then dispatched him.

Serious question here.  I like shooting guns with the rest of y'all.  If the snake was secured with a rake, why not kill it with the rake?  Obviously not as fun, but also less of a to-do.

My wife and youngest are at the farm a couple of days early to do some chores prior to the family Thanksgiving brouhaha-ha-ha.  Excitement ensued. 4'6", twelve rattles.  

You are cooking this for the family right?

Maybe it's just because I live in the city limits.  The last rattlesnake I killed was with a pitching wedge.

My PawPaw was a got damn snake assassin with a shovel.

I figured by now they would be in hibernating by now?  Did they find it under something? 

IIRC, they don't actually hibernate but rather a hybrid type situation where they come out on warm days and stay in on cool days.

How do you get close enough with a wedge or rake without opening yourself up to potentially getting bit from it launching itself at you. Those things can move quickly.

We've got a lot of experience.  The last six years have been snake Armageddon.

That tree was there when I was a kid.  We'll see who dies first.

Being sentimental towards a hackberry is like being sentimental towards your most memorable bowel movement. Sure, it was a great experience to drop those kids off at the pool, but you flushed them just the same.

Killed about a 20" rattlesnake on my patio last week. Mrs Rojo found it...yes there was a PESCADOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! moment. Told the boy to fetch me a shovel, whacked it in the head with the flat of the shovel, then used the side to cut it's head off. Mrs Rojo still won't go in the back yard.

Damn, I was out roaming with the kids the last couple days completely carefree from rattlers due to the cold. They were crawling through the brush around the stock tank collecting “dinosaur” bones. Glad I didn’t check this thread beforehand or they wouldn’t have had nearly as much fun. Also glad they didn’t come across any big mutherfuckers like bmbmd!

I took 2 steps right up the back of a 4+ footer on a cold morning dove hunting south of Tilden. 

Didn't move, didn’t rattle.

That’s the day I stopped hunting in snake gaiters and started hunting in snake chaps.

Good on little Rojo. If memory serves me correctly, didn’t I go to high school with Mrs. Rojo?
