I am thunderstruck. To a northern city slicker like myself (well, not really, but MA is pretty densely populated), that is astounding.
I have never seen even a single rattlesnake in the wild, let alone an army of them like that. If they are so common that you can encounter that many in a single day if you go looking for them, how on earth do you people avoid getting bitten occasionally while puttering around outdoors? Evidently the place is crawling, er, slithering, with them!
Seriously, how on earth is it safe to live where you do?
And, what kind of weapon did you take them with?
Tried some a friend cooked once. Not bad.
I wouldn't mind trying some if I had the opportunity, but it doesn't look like I will if I continue living up here.
