Last week I was hiking between Walsenburg and La Veta and came across a big bull snake (6 footer) just layin’ there soakin’ up the sun. He didn’t even budge as I walked by. Later on I came across an even bigger red racer (7 footer)...and he hauled a$$. It’s amazing how fast those snakes are...!


Every day on this side of the ground is a win.

Back when we had chickens we had some take up the taste for hens eggs.

We caught them and moved them to a pasture a few miles down the road.

None of their friends came calling.

Problem? It's no problem to let them have a few eggs in trade for keeping the mice and packrats in control. I like having them around.....

Me being a bit jumpy over the subject & a fast draw, I killed one of these on the first day of my first ever prairie dog shoot. When we told our host rancher about it he didn't seem too pleased but didn't say anything.

After that, & seeing the real deal prairie rattler, I too give the bulls a pass if I'm able.

If you have a lot of bullsnakes around, the rattlesnake population isn't very big.....

Good evening to you sir, I hope other than being a few eggs light that this finds you well.

Thanks for sharing the photos of those big old bull snakes and if you're so inclined, a quick question.

We have bull snakes here too, but I've never seen one the size of yours in the photo. I want to say a 3' model would be a pretty big one. The old ranchers would talk about keeping a few around if possible and as you said, besides pack rats they seem to make rattlers scarce too.

That said, I've never seen a rattler here much bigger than that either so perhaps we're at the northern edge of them or something?

Anyway the question is how big do they get and how big are the ones in the photos.

Thanks in advance sir, all the best to you and stay well.

Used to be a guy on here went by the moniker ‘Rattler’—you might remember him Dwayne—he was a wealth of knowledge about snakes. I hope he’s doing good wherever he‘s gone on to.
