Thanks for your help folks. I thought about wacking this guy, I would love to have his skin on the back of my bow, but he just wasn’t long enough.
I believe you are allowed 4 per year, although Im sure many kill more than that and probably dont even eat them. Im only up to 2 in my career so I doubt my efforts will have much impact on their status as a species lolAww don’t kill em! But I have to say I’ve got a hunting hat I’d love to have a bright Mojave’s hat band for.
I don’t like snakes to start with, but when they won’t get stoned with you when you offer.....well that’s just rude!Found my first Arizona rattler yesterday on the lower Salt River. Probably around 40-45" long. Nice snake. I tried to stone him, but he got away...
