A coworker and friend that went turkey hunting yesterday didn't get a turkey, but ended up bringing back a trophy anyway.
He makes his own bows, puts snake skin backing on them for camo, makes his own arrows, fletching, and knaps his own arrowheads. Even makes the sinew to tie everything together. He came across this snake walking out.

Looks like a "Timber rattler" to me as well Jazz.

Congrates on a fine rattler.

One of the guys I used to work, and is now retired with will get in your $hit if he finds out you kill a rattler, and don't bring in the meat. :eek: I've had it a couple of times out here, and its pretty tasty ;D

Thats interesting. When I've eaten them it was just a cross sectionwith the bones. Do you just fillet them like a fish? ???

Dennis,
It takes a little time at first.
You start where ya cut the head off @.
Cut out the first 1" of the spinal coloum,So you have something to grab onto, then yank it down.
Just like ya do to remove the skin.
It may take ya a time or two,When ya get though-ya never forget...like riding a bike.

Hmmmmm Wonder if I raced against you. I raced dirt bikes, and three wheelers, and did a lot of sand drags out at Little Sahara. Started in 82 and raced to 87.

Sorry didn't see this post b-4 today, Dennis. I bet we did throw some dirt at each other in that timeframe. I had # 370 from my 1976 RM 370 that I first started with at 59th and Douglas. Rode the Quad from '85-90.

I spent a lot of weekends at 59th and Douglas. I was racing the 3 wheeler pro class.

Also did a race at the Meeker racetrack. Half on the oval and then you jumped off of turn one and twisted around and jumped back on at turn 2. I could hang with the top 3wheelers in the tight stuff, but they had me motorwise around 3&4and the long straights. Came in 3rd on that one and then started to play with the motor and moved for a while to Ft Rucker Alabama. Did some awesome CC stuff on a PE 400 Suzuki and Quad racing.
