First, let me say that I REALLY do not like snakes, but i do want to take an opportunity to fish E. Wash this year. So, I'm at Rocky Ford and walk around a bend and three feet away there is a coiled rattler looking pissed off. I see my options as: 1) Faint and hope that fall and crush it first. Or: 2) Get bit and die a slow miserable painful death. What other options are available? FYI, I don't carry a gun. Thanks.
