    @Coyote Timber Rattlesnake. 12 rattles. Soon as I turned back around to head back home, it was gone.

    Wish I was there with my stuff. From what I understand Timbers are fairly calm and I would have tailed it. Tailing is holding the tail area while your snake hook holds the front part so it can’t turn and bite.

    @Coyote Since I didn’t have a long stick and wasn’t experienced in getting a snake to move on, I let him be. He sure did move off the road fast. It wasn’t even a minute I came back to where he had been.

    Now you know to toss a broomstick in your truck to push them off the road 😁

    Or buy at least a 43 inch snake hook.

    @Coyote My nerves ain’t up for working a hook. I do have a fear of snakes. I’m getting better around them, but I’ll stick holler or jump sometimes. Earlier that day I walked up a huge black racer and I did holler.

    That’s right, I forgot about that. Guess I don’t have to tell you the hook is on Amazon 🤣
