dd, in response to you suggesting to kill the snake being the safest way is auctually most bites are inflicted by people trying to dispose of the snake. Like I said, a 6ft rattler can strike more than 4ft. Also in recommending people to kill a rattler could also be illegal. Why not just leave it be.

I killed on here in SC a few years back that was 6ft long and had 19 rattlers and a button.

I have the hide and rattlers.

A timber that is.

Sorry bout that dd, hate to have to open a can of whipa$$.
Chad the guy you may be thinking about is possibly Bill Haas who use to own the Miami serpenturium, I've sold him many snakes and I even have the unofficial record for a pigmy rattler, 43" that I sold him. He's immune to that of a cobra bite which consist of a nero-toxin venom, but if a rattler were to bite him, he would have the same symptons as you or I as a person can not become immune to a hemo-toxin venom.

No matter what anybody else tells you, kill the snake before you try to do anything else to it!
It's the safest way for you and the snake doesn't care anymore.
This guy obviously doesn't know what he is talking about when it comes to sankes if he recommends killing it, more people get bit trying to kill snakes then leaving them alone! And I still don't believe the 9 foot 97 pounds, that would be an extremely heavy weight for a 9 foot python or anaconda, no way a rattler reaches it.

Some of you guys have no clue about snakes. There is no way a copperhead gets close to that size. I hope you were kidding. They may get 4 to 5 feet long. I want to see a 6 foot long cottonmouth. We have them everywhere in Louisiana and they don't get 6 feet long. They are short and thick. Someone said they have 11 foot long rattlers everywhere in Florida. Give me a break. The longest snake in the U.S. is an Indigo snake which rarely exceeds 9 feet. Where I hunt I have to mainly worry about timber rattlers and copperheads, but encounters with rattlesnakes is rare for anyone. When fishing I see cottonmouths all the time. Don't bother them and they won't bother you.
