That is one thing I've killed plenty of and have never eaten. Guess I've never been that hungry.:D When I kill'em, I'll send them to ya. Send back fish, shellfish. Fair trade?:msn-wink::roflmaoha0:

No pix, never happened.:msn-wink::misbehaving:

I wonder if I can find Snake at the meat market. I have never looked, never had a reason to before.

Sounds goooood. It's been a long time since I cooked one, but I can remember the taste and texture better than anything else I ate that long ago. Rattlesnake is tasty for sure.:thumbs up:

Ummmmm.......... I saw a gartersnake yesterday while mowing, bout a foot and a half.
Not many rattlers around here.
Copperhead now & then. Big ol' blacksnake.
I don't kill snakes though, they are just doing their business and I leave them alone. They do a lot of good.

I love fried rattlesnake. We used to hunt them when I live up in Wyoming. More often than not, we would clean them, wrap them in foil with onion and butter and lemon just like the trout we caught and then toss them in the camp fire till they sizzled.

It's just good meat. Thanx for spurring the goos memories.

I'll take 'em if he doesn't want them

Just little velvet tails up there I imagine. Nuthin big enough to be worth cleaning.

Haven't had rattler in many years, it's just not something we get out here. I like them though.......on my plate, not out and about.

Garter snakes do not taste good. Don't ask how I know, just take my word on it

The smell they put off when you handle them gave me a clue.

Ahh :exasper:

But I do like me some rattle snake also. My grandaddy used to fry them in cajun spices and serve with fried green maters.

Never had, but want to try. We get our share of snakes around here, but no rattlers.

We've got rattlers around here, but my problem is, the way I kill them, you'd only be able to have soup with what's left. 12 gauge is really hard on 'em.

We used to see many of them where we lived in Fla. 12 gauge was my policy as well.:roflmaoha0:

I used a Browning Buckmark .22 on mine. Worked perfect.

Do you guys have the big rattles up there, or just the little velvet tails and timber rattelrs?

We have a few diamondbacks here, but only in the really rocky areas.
