Default Big Rattle Snake in Nacona!!!

So my buddy and his father in law were out working on there property last weekend. Mowing. Weed eating. Cleaning up around camp. Etc.

They were up working by camp when his father in law yells.
Matt! Stop...Don't move...

Come to find out this ol' boy was laying in the shade a few feet from Matt. They guessed he moved up to the cut grass for the mice running around. Even tho he was wearing snake boots I'd like to say thanks for saving him Ricky!
It could have been really bad!

The best camo pattern ever!

Just before he put new underwear on...

That's an 8' piece of OSB...

Those aren't the kind of snakes you accidentally step on. That thing is big enough you'd trip over it.
