Default What Would You Do ?

Bow season just opened.

You get all set up.

You go to your favorite hunting spot.

You are walking to your stand.

You step over a new fallen tree.

And there only 3 steps away is a 6 Foot Rattler.

You only have a bow and the arrows are in the quiver.

You only have a couple seconds to respond.

What would you do ?

I would put the bow between me and the rattler and get away from it as fast as I could.

At least the bow would stop the rattler from biting me
long enaugh to get away from it.

Sooooooo what would yall do ?

This is where the nut comes in!

I would have to try to pin it down with my bow and chatch it. Odds are I would get it take it home alive than deside to kill it and eat it or let it go in a spot that I hunt all the time.

Two years ago I took 4 rattlers to work alive in a 5 galon bucket. They made me take the snakes away from the sight.Alot of guys where soooooo skeerd.

3 steps is far enough away that it couldn't stirke you. I'd stand there and watch it a few moments, maybe even try to snap a picture, then head on my way.

I agree. Me being a snake fanatic and having cought them my entire life would have probably tried to catch it. But I never kill snakes so therefore I would have released it later in a spot out of the way.
