Rattlesnake hunting with a bow is super fun!!!! I grew up around rattlesnakes and usually don't wear chaps ( im sure one day I will learn my lesson! ) I usually just get up close and put the bottom part of my boot out to it to make it coil and then shoot it in the head. That or if it starts slithering away or whatever snakes do then I just follow it with my bow like you do a shotgun and a clay pigeon and shoot it in the head!! Ohhh yes, I love it!!!!!!
