tx 11 footsnakeIt would not be summer if I didn’t post a humongous rattler. This one has been floating around social media the last few weeks and is allegedly an “11-footer from Texas.”

I don’t think rattlesnakes grow that large, but no matter. This is an especially troubling image, so vivid in my mind, since I’ll be hunting in south-central Texas next week.

With all the rain they have had down there, the brush will be thick, and who knows what lurks beneath…

I have my snake boots ready, but it’s my heart I’m worried about if I ever see one of those things.
