Rattlesnake Hunting: A Child Rearing Sport

WAURIKA, Okla. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Hunting for rattlesnake prepares a kid for life.

At the 48th Annual Waurika Rattle Snake Hunt in Waurika, Oklahoma, this Friday (Apr. 10) through Sunday (Apr. 12), folks will be heading out in mobs to capture venomous slitherers, and they’ll bring their little ones along for the kill.

According to spokesperson Johnny Berry, kids can learn many important life lessons from hunting and killing snakes.

He explains, “We don’t recommend that people bring their kids because the terrain is real rocky but they do, and actually, they learn stuff. Hunting rattlesnakes teaches them safety, how to be cautious, and how to hunt.”

Not only can kids learn these valuable lessons, they can also learn how to escape if a snake sneaks into their sleeping bag and can watch how to deep fry a rattler.

Parents will also see the benefits of snake hunting, especially during this economic crisis.

Berry says, “It’s great for the economy because you go out and hunt the snakes. Skin ’em and cook ’em, and there’s dinner.”
