Default How big would a rattlesnake have to be to be record sized?

There are some bigguns that have been seen around the oil leases. I’ll probably have to remove those that are a threat to safety.

Could a person potentially earn some serious money if you caught one that was unusually large? Who would you contact to buy it?

Believe the longest western Dback on record is 7’8” or 7’9”

Want to say if you catch 6+ footers they are worth a couple hundred bucks or something but I’ll let someone else 100% confirm that

Only way to make money is place snake on a stick and hold out towards camera (with your arms and hands hidden) so it looks like a 12-13 footer.

Then get it all over social media.


Then still not make money

8 to 9 footers are common on the internet. I see the pictures so I know it's true.

At one time there was a place south of Austin, maybe San Marcos or close to San Antonio along I-35 that would pay by the pound for "live" Rattlesnakes.

I assure you, I never made a dime from the sales..........cause I aint picking them up alive!

92 1/2" is the biggest Western Diamondback on record. If you found an 8 footer it'd be worth $25,000. Alive.

But say you found one that was 93". You wouldn't get near as much for it. It'd be better to contact a museum or something and donate it to them.

Killed 2 rattlers in Spofford in Kinney county back in the early 1970's that were both pushing 7ft. Big old critters.

When I was a kid we'd ride around at night and pick them up off the road. We'd sell them to folks at the rattlesnake roundup. Was pretty good money for a hs kid.

Had a lease in Irion co. that was covered in rattlers back in early 2000’s. Would collect them live and sell them to a local taxidermist by the lb. He would freeze dry them and then sell them. It would pay for my fuel and corn for the weekend. We had one we thought would go 7’ that got away from us. Couldn’t pin him with what we had, was too strong. After that, we contacted the Ft. Worth zoo to see if they would pay for a live 7’ rattler. They said they would pay 2k for a live 7’ snake. This was almost 20 yrs ago.

I shot these 2 a few years back. My buddy’s grandpa took a pic with them, he’s over 6 feet tall. The rattler in his left hand was clearly over 6ft.

Default Biggun

Hey guys-Awesome thread. I have the pleasure of hunting with a small group of TBH-ers down in South Texas (Webb county) and they flat out get BIG down here.
I harvested this guy last and he was just at 7’ long. I guess someone put him on the book of faces (I’m not on social media) and I eventually had a news company call me to interview me regarding my “world record rattlesnake” HAHAHA. Anyhow I’ll look back but I think 83” long and around 16” around….not a record but definitely a heck of a snake!
And YES he is being mounted full body in a south texas scene with a bobcat and a quail etc….HONOR YOUR HARVEST!!!

That's a sure enough biggun, but are you sure about the 16" circumference? It looks like you could put your hands around that one.

I've tanned some 6-7 footers from south Texas but the biggest I've personally seen was in McCulloch county 20 years ago. I didnt kill it either. I wish I could have caught but it gave me the slip in the thick shinery.. It was HUGE!! The girth was unreal.

I killed one at First Point several years ago that was bigger around than the two that the older gentleman is holding but not as big as Bourland’s. That’s a helluva snake ! The one I killed was the biggest I’ve ever seen in the flesh dead or alive.

Oh he's right about the girth Randy! That sucker didn't even look real he was so fat!! AND WHERE HE KILLED IT... well, I'd a probably just stayed in the truck!! Snake was hunting his feeder... It was wet and had rained a lot... Buffelgrass was over knee deep... He waded in and capped that sucker with his pistola!!

Couple weeks later, saw another one almost as big and he got away!!



BUT, strange thing is, we have not seen a snake on the ranch since the big Feb. 21 freeze... I know it didn't get 'em all, but I really believe it knocked 'em back drastically... Rancher last time I talked to him said him nor his cowboys had run across any either...
AND I'M OK WITH THAT!!

When we measured for the longest rattlesnakes at our roundups, we always measured live snakes. A lot of difference in the length of a live snake and a dead snake.

Not to begin with no. But it took two of us to pick it up when he did pick it up live. You're right those sumbucks are stronger than heck. I had the tail end and it went to thrashing as soon as he picked it up. I had to hang on as good as I could so it didn't twist around in his hand. The tail alone was bigger around than a quarter. He pulled it out of a 55 gallon barrel right before picking it up and it went to thrashing and it was hitting the sides of that barrel and it was wobbling the barrel. You talk about solid muscle.......It was crazy. Absolutely huge snake.

You really have to have ahold when you commit to pinning the head down on a snake that big. They can twist around in your hand or drop a fang over their bottom lip and snag you once they go to thrashing around. Picking those like that up is dangerous business.

Even a 4 1/4 or 5 footer will surprise you. They're solid muscle. Trying to straighten one out and measure it is hard to do. It's like trying measure a coiled spring.

Yep. When measuring five and six footers we would use four people to hold them and massage them to get their length.

Yeah you gotta have a few folks on them to get them straightened out. But I suppose even then you'd get a more accurate measurement once the snake is dead and every muscle is relaxed. I haven't actually ever done that just to see how much longer a rattlesnake is when it's completely relaxed.

The problem is most places offering cash for snakes want them live I would think. So lets say you measure a snake and it's 5 inches shy of what they need in order to cough up the money. In reality that snake probably is exactly that length but there's no way to get it stretched to maximum capacity without hurting or killing your valuable rattlesnake. I wonder if the place offering a cash reward would take that into account?

I know my uncle killed a 7 footer, it was wrapped around the legs of ladder for his deer blind, one morning, when he was climbing out of the blind.

I have seen two that I am sure would get to 7 ft., possibly over. Neither hung around for me to find out how big they were. I tried to kill both, did not get either one. One was outside of Coleman, the other was outside of Encinal.

My dad grew up in the hills of Oklahoma and had to learn how to hunt at an early age in order to survive. He would occasionally mention how him and his brother would often watch for snake trails in the sandy clay soil where an oil pipeline was buried. There was one he said, that was as wide as a truck tire. They searched the area over and over but never found it. It was mentioned how they figured it must’ve been a very old snake to get that big around.

During one of his hunting trips he brought along a dog that he had trained. Dad told how the dog definitely saved his life because there was a rattlesnake well camouflaged in the path dad was walking towards. The dog spotted it and took the snake bite that most likely would’ve killed my dad that day. About four years ago dad passed away after battling dementia. Thankful for the hunting stories he shared when he was still in good health.

I can’t speak for any other shows but all snakes had to be live that we purchased. And there is a big difference in length when they’ve been hanging dead versus just laying on the ground dead versus live, which I’m sure you know. .

Haha! For reference I am 5’ 9”. Here he is fully stretched out to the ground. I’ll probably never forget that day. He was indeed hunting my feeder. I don’t take a step in tall grass out there anymore without looking first and remembering how high this dude jumped when I came up on him.

There’s two in there over 7’ the stretched out one is 7’8” and the coiled up ready to strike is 7’6”. Both came from the Norias division from a pasture near the highway.

The 7’6” has a hilarious story about what happen to the group after they caught it alive
