This is way too close for comfort. There are some dangers to hunting for wild turkey—such as calling in the odd coyote or bobcat—but perhaps none are as frightening as having a rattlesnake almost literally in your lap. This turkey hunter found out the hard way that being too focused on the hunt could leave you open to a surprise visit from one of these inquisitive reptiles.
Then again, snakes usually do not see out human interaction, so the hunter could probably thank his camo and other gear for working a bit too well.
Just keep an eye on the lower left corner of this turkey hunting video. Can anybody identify what species of snake this is?
