Here it is me holding it. Im over 6 ft tall it was over 4 ft long easily.

Here it is after I cleaned it.

I fried em before but messed up on saving the skins. Any tips on saving the skin and or cooking it. I usually cut em up into about 3 inch pieces batter em and fry em.

Can you fully describe the taste, and how you cooked it? thanks.
Oh, and how much would it weigh when dressed? Is it bony?

Taste like chicken. :)
This is how it's often described. What if someone hasn't tasted chicken before? Then how would you describe the tast of rattlesnake?
Does rattlesnake taste *exactly* like chicken, really? And what part of the chicken? The breast meat? Or the thigh medium or darker meat? Is it greasy and does it dry easy on cooking like a chicken wouldn't because a chicken usually has enough fat and moisture. Just wanting details. :shrug:
