    To me it is far more offensive to needlessly kill something than any words you may or may not use to describe them.
    I don't like them one bit but to kill one just because it's there seems pretty vulgar to me.....but I do understand why.
    And that is why I carry along some Flour, Pappys, and a bottle of wesson oil.......I had my first NC timber Rattler at 15 and just had my first Alligator a few months ago. The TR was far better tasting!

    If you ever lived in any of the Gulf Coast states, you have a lot of snake stories. I was squirrel hunting one time, and saw too big fox squirrels cutting cones in a tall cypress tree. I eased around where I could get a shot and killed the first one. The second one retreated to the back side of the tree. While trying to keep my eye on him, I was reaching down to pick up his fallen partner, but he was not where he fell. I looked down, and a big cottonmouth was trying to make a meal out of my squirrel. If anyone ever tells you that you cannot shoot a snake in the head with a .22 rifle offhand, while airborne, it is simply not true.

    He never coiled up and seemed be moving slower than unsual. I think the snow and the cold had him slowed down.

    Was archery antelope hunting in Montana in August; it's typically so hot that I wear shorts. I always thought that they would rattle before striking - not true. Thankfully the bugger didn't get me, but coiled up. I backed up to 20 yards and ranged it and let the muzzy fly. He was pronounced dead at the scene. I can't stand snakes so I didn't even touch him.
