When Rattlesnakes Strike!

If you have ever hunted mule deer or antelope on the desert prairies that dominate portions of our landscape rattlesnakes have likely crossed your mind. On more than one occasion we have run into them and fortunately have been able to walk away without a quick trip to the E.R. for anti-venom. Press play on this video to see just how this encounter went, you won’t be disappointed!
