I would not use new Bowtech Allegiance to block the bite. I would let it bite me before it even thinks about biting my bow. Call me suicidal, but I call it dedication!

I've had to make similar decisions several times, although usually with much smaller snakes. A six foot rattlesnake is rare around here. The average Western Diamondback around here is only about 3 ft. or so. Probably the closest I've come to getting bitten was when I was hunting snakes in an old fallen down house. There was a big rattler under the house, and I could see him, so I crawled in there after him. I normally wouldn't have, but this one was just too big to resist. I didn't have to go all the way in, just my head and shoulders to get him. As soon as I grabbed him, one started rattling on a brace right behind my head. Made for a very tense few moments.

Rybo is right, the snake is far enough away that he couldn't strike. I'd back off and go around him!
Here in East Tex, I hear people bragging, even having pictures, and skins of the rattlers they have killed. Well they are setting themselves up for a huge fine! In East Texas, the only "rattler" we have is the Timber Rattler, and it is on the Federal Endangered Species list!

See about catching him so I can show my boys then release it. No reason to kill it, although I hear it tastes like chicken, but I hear everything tastes like chicken.
