    A friend of mine got bit while we were shooting last night. The old man shot a pygmy rattler 3 times and the crazy kid walks over to grab it thinking it was dead.
    He is in ICU unconscious and may not make it. He had a bad reaction to the antivenom.

    Glad to hear he's going to be OK. With wild animals, I subscribe to the theory if it's dead, shoot it one more time.

    Itís odd how much the reaction to a rattler bite varies. Iíve been bitten twice decades ago but in both cases had just got through milking them so the dose of venom was minimal. A guy with us had the anti-venom but we waited for any real effect and ended up not using it. The group leader had been hit by a full venom sac a couple of times and had to spend a few hours under observation but was back at it within 24 hours.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    . If you ain't havin' fun, it's your own damn fault

    The antidote is what dammed near killed him, it gave him some sort of asthmatic reaction.
    The hospital will probably log him as covid.

    Good to hear. Someone in town a few years back got bit by a pygmy rattler in a Walmart garden center. They nearly died too.
    Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
    he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
