    Boy! I'd like to have that to put in my front yard! Would love to see the look on a BG's face when he came up to the house & came across my Guard Rattler! These little copper heads I have around here don't always work. Too hard to see, so unless they step on one & get bit, don't help much.

    DEEP-FRIED RATTLESNAKE

    1 medium-sized rattlesnake (3-4 lbs.), cut into steaks
    1/2 cup flour
    1/4 cup cornmeal
    1/4 cup cracker crumbs
    1/2 cup milk
    1 egg
    1/4 teaspoon garlic powder (not garlic salt)
    1 teaspoon salt
    Dash pepper

    Mix dry ingredients. Whisk milk into beaten egg and use to dip snake steaks. Then coat them with dry ingredients. Fry, uncovered, in 400 degree oil until brown.

    Yum,Yum! It sorta tastes like chicken.
    (I always wonder why folks just don't eat chicken)

    We had to pull some security at Camp Gruber in Oklahoma with a couple thousand Katrina evacuees and had some issues with them roaming at night until we posted a pic of a snake about that big that had been caught on post :)

    A quick death would be better than having to put up with Nancy. Poor snake.
