I ate it straight off the fire once, no oil er batter.  It is just like eating a chicken neck flavor and all.  Good finger food.

Never ate rattler myself, but I have had a bull snake. What I remember about it was that what little meat there was surrounding the bones was TOUGH! I'd eat snake again...if I were hungry.

Strikes me as an 'emergency ration', similar to eatin' squirrel or rat. Or explaining why the camp dog doesn't come around anymore. ;D

I'd eat my own arm 'fore I eat the dog. 
     Now squirrels on the other hand...

I believe I would actually have to be starving to eat snake, but then the whole concept of snakes sort of gives me the willies!

You are right.  I do insert that from time to time, but the first time I said it was just like that, so I tend to stick to tradition. ;D  Birds still count because they walk.

Got some Baxter Black in the CD player, the thing decides to play this now and then:

The sign upon the cafe wall said OYSTERS Fifty Cents
"How Quaint" the blue eyed sweetheat said with some bewidermence.
"I didn't know you had such fare out here upon the plain."
"Oh sure" her cowboy date replied, "We're really quite urbane."

"I would guess the're Cheaapeake or Blue Point don't you think."
No maam they're mostly Herford cross...and usually they're pink.
But I've been so cold myself, what you say could be true
And if a man looked close enough their points could sure be blue.

She said, "I gather them myself out on the bay alone,
I pluck them from the murky depths and smash them with a stone!"
The cowboy winched, imagining a calf a calf with her beneath,
"Me I use a pocket knife and yank' em with my teeth."

"Oh my," she said, "You animal, how crude and unrefined.
Your masculine assertiveness sends shivers up my spine!
But I prefer a butcher knife too dull to really cut.
I wedge it in on either side and crack it like a nut."

I pry them out, if they resist, sometimes I use the pliers,
Or even Grandpa's pruning shears if that is what it requires.
The hair stood on the cowboy's neck, his stomach did a whirl.
He'd never heard such grisly talk, especially from a girl.

"I like them fresh," the sweetheart said and laid her menu down
Then ordered oysters for them both when the waiter came around.
The cowboy smiled gamley, though her words stuck in his craw
But he finally fainted dead away when she said, "I'll have mine raw!"

                                                         Baxter Black


Now Leo, I hope you know who Bax is with out googlin' if not it could go hard on ya. ::)

I sure like his (BB's) words, but y'all can have MY oysters ... or snake ... or camp dog/cat ... or ... well, you get the idea.
 ;)
I admit to bein' a city boy ... but I'm tryin' to improve ...

By the way ....

Back a few pages ago I commented on Cpt. Little and him (apparently) shooting a target about 5 or 6 ft. in front of him.  Turns out you were shootin' downhill.  That's all fine and good, but I like it better that way the picture shows!  It's funnier that way!  The explanation of shooting downhill is MUCH more boring than him shooting a rifle at a target a few feet away.  From the photo angle, it isn't readily apparent that it is on the edge of a downhill slope.

I guess ya had ta be there.

And I wish I was ...
