1 pointMike heres how it is around me, if I frequent an area my property included there will be no rattlers. I have been in a position of stepping on one just before daylight and I know what they are capable of if they strike. Homey don't play that game, and I don't care what anybody says about OH bUT the snakes keep the mouse and rat populations down etc. etc. Yeah well theres plenty of other non venomous ones that will do the same job.
