snake'n'rain










Dispatched my first rattler of the season Saturday evening.  It's pretty creepy how its' headless body continued to coil around in a ziplock bag in my fridge for about an hour.  Dressed it out Sunday afternoon and ate it for lunch.  Not much meat on this poor little guy but he was big enough to kill me and there are too many places for him to hide near the house so I got him first.  Gonna tan the skin and send it to my friend from my high fashion days, Josie Borain who lives in South Africa - in exchange for a trinket from her country.  http://blog.africageographic.com/safari-blog/photography/josie-borain-in-africa-1/


Had a nice gusher this afternoon and now my road is closed for at least a couple of days. Got my truck back here on Saturday - made a run to the post office this morning to ship out the last of the ingot orders  The swamp has turned into a jungle of mesquite and black eyed susans.  79,107,71, .50",B,0

Does the snake get labeled as food harvested?

did the snake taste like catfish? are there frogs in the swamp?

snake is good and you could hunt for them if I send you right equipment to do so.
I like the bigger ones to make cowboy hatbands.
