Watch this impressive bow kill of a huge rattlesnake!
This video is a must-see for rattlesnake-haters (like me)! The one featured looks furious, too. It looks like it could strike at a moment's notice.
Sure, they're an important part of their ecosystems, and rodent populations are kept in check thanks in part to them, but c'mon, the general feeling towards them isn't exactly rosy. Mostly because no one wants to suffer a snake bite at the fangs of one of these.
We promise you've never seen someone shoot one like this, though!
Living in Texas country, with no shortage of these venomous snakes. I've had my fair share of encounters. Over the years, I've witnessed many ways to dispose of these serpents: handguns, shotguns. However, never have I seen a perfect rattlesnake headshot with a bow! That's as impressive as a bowhunter getting a perfect double lung hit while deer hunting!
This one looked to be a diamondback rattlesnake, found in plenty of the southwestern United States. Anyone who's experienced a terrible rattler bite probably found a little satisfaction from this.
Very impressive, sir. This takes some serious archery skills to make a shot like that!
