    ...babies release all their venom...adults know better. Unless you step on a rattler or otherwise put them in a situation they feel personally threatened...they will leave yo alone. The rattle they make is specifically to let you know they are there...it's saying "here I am...back off and there won't be a problem"...

    Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences. -7.38; -3.44

    •  Yep. We just draw the line (5+ / 0-)

      at the kept yard space. There's not that much of it, about 3 acres out of ~26 in our keeping. Mowed regularly and weed-et. Immediate yard, garden and disc golf fairways/greens. Do keep managed stands of forest-grown medicinals (ginseng, black and blue cohosh, goldenseal plus a few serious lessers). We don't challenge on that turf, but we do expect retreat. So far there have been no show-downs outside the yard.
