My First Rattlesnake

I was a young 54 years old the last time I can recall making a standard, hold-im-up-and-shoot-im, rattlesnake picture. After 12 years my mind has deteriorated to the point I can't recall the first name of the snake dispatcher, who made it a good snake. Coach Mills (left) was just along for the ride. Mr. Miller gets the award for bringing back good old days to a tired, retired snapshooter.

For old time sake, the picture is black and white. Go to TREUTLEN E-NEWS to see it in color.

Not my first rattlesnake picture ever, but my first one since 1998. My first rattlesnake picture ever was in the late 60s near Statesboro, the day before Thanksgiving. I was working for Rockwell and I was taking pictures of the prize birddogs of my bossman, Barry Bloser.

Mr. Miller's first name is Ray. I knew that.
