Remote Site Hunting & Rattlesnakes

April 03, 2020 03:01PM
Just thought I would post this as a reminder.----You can just about set your calendar to the date of April 15th when rattlesnakes start coming out in the OR, ID, WA, NV areas----If you get out hunting remote/old sites, keep an eye out for them & you will be ok guys but be aware of your surroundings.----Down here in the CA area where we have wintered the rattlesnakes seem to be out pretty much year round.----Patsy & I were on a hunt just yesterday at an old stage stop area just off the Colorado River----Patsy was coming down a trail and heard a buzzing through the right ear cup of her headphones.----She looked down & right at the edge of a mesquite bush by her leg was a humongous rattlesnake--all coiled--head in the air & rattles a singing--ready to strike.-----She sloooowly backed off & that big boy kept his head in the air watching every move she made.----It's the closest call to rattlesnake bite we have ever had in all our years of detecting.----Most of the rattlesnakes we come across are smaller ones (though just as venemous)--but this guy was HUGE.----Most rattlesnake bites aren't fatal but they can cause a lot of pain/anquish and in some cases put you in ICU for awhile.----There's no call to get paranoid but do keep an eye/ear out for them.------------Del
