    Quick check on the trail to see if the fires shut down my hunt location and I find this guy. I'd say 5 feet in length. Probably just ate. Was super slow and lethargic. 2fbb33edfbd11a0a1ded9a06625a92e9.jpg
    Right before im going to spend the weekend bush wacking. Makes me want to run to walmart to buy a fishing license.

    Don't kill the red ones they are protected. Big snake I would get gators before a fishing license.

    Protected!?! Oh crap I thought all rattlers are good to eat? Guess I have to look at my reptile game menu.

    Crotalus ruber....the red ones are the only ones you can't even pet. Although they say it has the least potent venom.

    The rest of the rattlers however you can take and a sport fishing license is not necessary.

    Five feet is a big one. Glad you didn’t step on him. I’ve been seeing lots of the red diamonds lately. San Jacinto is infested with them so be careful hunting there. If they build those 11,000 homes, the rodent population will explode with all of the landscaped common areas and tot lots. The rattlers will come looking for them and there are going to be some unfortunate encounters.

    The red's are cool, not much in the way of attitude, leave them alone and just walk around them.
