Not knowing the leagality of such actions as killing rattlesnakes, I contact the WDFW and it was confirmed that it is leagal but only if you have a hunting license. Otherwise you will be breaking the law if you harrass them without warrent. Now starlings on the other hand are fair game to anyone who wants to take them out. Rattlesnakes do taste a bit like a cross between a chicken and frog legs and fish. Ira..
