Drive up Antoine Creek after dark turn around when the pavement ends you should find a couple.

Year to year is different for me, but there are snakes all over Chelan County.  Couple years ago we saw them literally on every hike.  Last year I can't say that I saw one. 

Gifford Shake-Tail..Neighbor used to feed this guy mice he would catch in a mouse trap in the house...Lived under his porch.

This time of year look for the snakes around any ground squirrel colony's...Find ground squirrels there are snakes around. Later in the summer look along streams that run through rocky areas .

I have seen three on the property in three years and they always make me cringe.  That brushy country....you don't know they are there until they make noise in most cases.   :yike: :yike: :yike:   Pretty sure one made me soil myself last year... :o :o

So I have never seen a rattlesnake while in the woods.  I really want to!!!  I've seen bull snakes, but can't find a rattlesnake.  Were headed over to chelan for a week in the middle of July.  Anyone have a suggestion as to how and where to look for them?  Not going to kill them, just want to see one.

Look for some rocky areas.  You can usually find them or a den of them.  Seen quite a few out this year already when we were out turkey hunting.

Just go below Grade Creek Road from now until September in the rocky, bluffy areas and you will find snakes. Lots of snakes. Way too many snakes.

Thanks for the pointers fellas.  Found 4 snakes one night and one was about 3 feet long.  Found a dead one that had already been run over and took the rattle.  Tons of fun.
