5 Foot Rattler with a bow
« on: August 26, 2022, 09:01:47 AM »
One of my friends and former client/chef, kills everything with his long bow - elk, deer, upland game, you name it. He got this monster yesterday while out scouting for elk near his home in Gallatin, MT. He's going to use the skin for his bow and is smoking the meat.

I personally believe a GAU-8 to be a perfect tool for those creatures.

You know, he could have just walked up and stuck the arrow in it holding the arrow in his hand? Rattlesnakes can only strike 1/3 their length unless they are pinned down.
We ran into them all the time in E Wa.

I agree it tastes like chicken. Had it plain and marinated in bbq sauce. Both were good.

I killed and ate one down range at Ft. Carson in the early 80s. No one in the company ever messed with me after that. They thought I was crazy for eating snake. They were eating C-Rats. Who was crazy? It was delicious.
