Just one of the joys of South Carolina's early deer season opening (Tuesday). Went to sight in my rifles today. To say the least,he was an unwelcome visitor! This Canebreak was 58" long,figuring in 4" that I cut off. Ten rattles and a button. What do y'all figure I'll be thinkin' about while I'm walking to my stand Tuesday morning in the dark? I HATE snakes!

Tom, a friend and I were driving through Shawnee National Forest in southern Illinois(near Garden of the Gods) this last weekend and saw a timber rattler ever bit of 6'(came close to touching both sides of a gravel two trail when extended), biggest one I've ever seen. Of course, they're protected down there and we couldn't take him. My friends deer hunting camp was close by and he doesn't want problems with DNR.

Hard for me to believe that those critters are protected Steve. I've never seen a six footer. That's a huge rattler!

Look at the pronounced black line on the left side of the snake,the man's shorts and part of the stick.

I do believe you're right, f.t. Some folks are very talented. I did see some that appear to be real in a "Snake Boots" ad (I think) on http://www.snakeboots.com/snakepic.htm Some of them do appear to be well over 6 ft.
