Rattlesnake hunting costs big money now.
I intended to catch and harvest one rattlesnake to try eating and to tan the skin. I was telling some friends last buck season of my intensions. Well as I told them the permit is free you just have to apply. When I got on line I found out the tag is $25 but I put it off. Well a couple weeks ago I decided to bite the bullet and get the permit. Oh my! It is now $50 and I decided to pass. I know where to find rattletails and I guess one large male will live now.
I did want to taste rattlesnake and wanted a tanned skin but not that bad.
Fifty bucks seems quite excessive to me.
PS Their form still says resident $25. However the book says $50.
