Timber Rattler

Back

One snake down
Okay, So we are installing the septic tank and line for the Earth shelter house.  I asked Adam to run an extension cord down so I could cut the PVC pipe.  The cord, when stretched to the area we were working, went under the corner of a pile of Hardi-Panel that was left over from the siding on the barn and the house.

After about four or 5 hours of working out there, Adam told me that the extension cord was making a buzzing sound or something.  I went up and eased the cord away from the debris with a very long stick.  The buzzing continued despite my shuffling of the pile a little.

Jen said, 'I think that is a Rattle snake.'

After getting the shotgun and loading it to the hilt, I pulled up on a 2x4 that was sticking out the other end of the pile and there he was... a 3 foot PLUS timber rattler doing everything he could to warn us off.

I dropped the board.  The snake was right next to the 2x4 so I shot four times parallel to the board.  Upon lifting the board again, he was unable to shake his lifeless tail but his head was still very alive.  I used the last shot on a direct shot to the head from a range of about 12 inches.  He was dead.  My first Rattle snake and it was a TIMBER RATTLER.... it was an exciting evening!
