I ran across this snake crossing the trail. ( I didn't run him over, just saw him ). I also saw some juvenile coyotes. I could tell they were juveniles because they were chewing jimsonweed and shouting fat jokes as I rode by.
I saw a short fat Rattle Snake yesterday crossing a clay road with loose gravel on top.
He tried to speed up when he saw me, but I was faster.
I ran over him then looked back to see if I hurt it or killed it.
Didn't see it. Kinda scared me cause I thought he might have gotten up in the engine compartment.
Got off and poked around the front end and rear end with a stick, used a long stick to revv up the engine.
No luck. No snake in the engine, or around the area I ran over him.
Killed the engine, left the Ace there and walked back to the truck.
Today, beat around with a stick again, no snake. Rode back to the truck, but was scared the whole ride.
No more running over poisonous snakes for me.
