OK. Out here in CA, you can frequently encounter rattlesnakes in some areas. They're not very aggressive when you don't bother them, they just rattle and slither away. Well, I've heard that snake can taste pretty good... and I've never tried it. I love alligator meat... so why not snake meat? Mind you, it doesn't only have to be the super poisonous rattlesnake I go after, as there are plenty of even larger snakes around here I could go for, should I chance upon them again.
I'm a quick and nimble guy, though I'd rather not have to rely entirely on physical ability to keep me out of danger should I decide to go after a snake. So, does anyone here know a thing or two about capturing/hunting snakes?
The next time I'm on a hike I'm actually thinking of going with a good hiking/walking stick, which should do well in pinning down a snake from a distance on its own, but I think I'd rather make it so that I can stick a blade on the end of it on the fly to form a sort of spear when I need it. In fact, that'd be pretty damn useful for a host of other potential situations, mountain lions included x_x.
