Welcome to country living!
This morning, I was just putting food and water for a couple of stray cats in the front yard and I heard a noise nearby. I looked and saw a large snake moving away. I jumped back. I looked and it had no rattles. It was a bull snake. He disappeared into (apparently) a burrow.
I have been told that bull snakes kill rattlesnakes along with rodents.

Had he been a rattlesnake, I would have grabbed my .38 revolver and blown it to kingdom come. I have a special varmint (buckshot-like) load for my gun that I bought a few months ago at Warrior Women Gun Shop a few doors away from me.
