    Time for another snake story: A few years ago, a good friend of mine talked me into a Wyoming Antelope Hunt. We were hunting outside of Casper, and as luck would have it, the weather had warmed up to a very unseasonable 100+ degrees. When I arrived in Casper, he said I want to show you something. He took me out to the hunting area, and the blacktop road through the area was literally crawling with snakes. Little green rattlers that looked like Mojave Greens, but were actually greenish colored prairie rattlers. They were so danged small, you could not hear them rattle, but that did not affect the potency of their bite. We found out that the weather had been normal for October-cool days, freezing nights, until the heat wave hit. The snakes had been bunched up in abandoned prairie dog burrows for hibernation, but the hot weather woke them up. After learning this bit of information, I informed my hunting partner that my hunting tactics had changed drastically. I would not be crawling around in the tall grass stalking trophy antelope, but fully intended on shooting the first dummy that I found in range of my 25/06 Pistol. The closer to the road the better! I was true to my word, but did shoot a doe at 287 yards that I could drive up to in my truck. Interestingly, he had hunted this same unit in the same week, during the previous year. They had over a foot of snow, and had to buy extra clothes!

    Anaconda?

    I'll admit that on one place where snakes were thick, there were a lot of hunts that my feet never touched the ground. Would drive up to my climber on my 4wheeler, park at the base of the tree in a mass of switch cane and climb 20' up to be able to cover several sloughs and tree lines. I felt bad sending my friends down there to hunt.

    That's crazy!! If I ever hunt with you let me know if that is the spot you described lol!! I would have a stroke! I know that movie too but not the one. The one I was thinking of involved rattlesnakes and being woke from hibernation early due to blasting or some nonsense. They killed a bunch of people. Even lower budget then anaconda if you can believe that lol.

    I have been gone for a bit, but this thread hits home with me. I love rattle snakes!! I have never killed one, and I think people should avoid killing them if at all possible. Relocate em when you find em near your camp spot.

    Now for my best advise. When photographing a coiled pissed off snake at close range, you have to keep your hands behind the camera. Reach over the top to hit the button. You are usually safe no matter what, because if they strike they will strike at the lense because they see the glare off of it. Someday I could try to find some of these pics I took. Then I helped him off the road so not to get smushed by a car.

    I can say I have seen one of those young rattlers that had no rattles. That could be a little hazardous.
