    Ran into this critter while getting some pre season work done at our hunt camp last weekend.

    How did you cook it? :D


    It must be their time of year; my BIL killed one at his shop last week, same pattern. He called it a timber rattler, not sure if that is correct. I am pretty sure his assistant cooked and ate it.

    Kinda stringy. Didn't care for it and it does NOT taste just like chicken.

    Rattlers are tasty,, pretty much all rib meat,,, can't do much better than ribs,, those boys back in Texas around Big Spring used to cook them up real well after one on their " Rattlesnake Roundups " they used to have there. Milk out the venom for use in medical fields, sell the skins and fry up a fair portion of them and many were released back into the wild,, that was several years back, I do not even know if those events still go on anymore.

    Yep, they do still go on.

    Are the ribs real small like in fish?
