Story I read of a pioneer who was bit by a rattler in his new boots... Nobody knew why.. Left a widow and 2 kids, boy and girl...
When the boy grew up to wear his "man of the house" boots that were his daddy's, he also got sick and died.or close to it..
The mystery was solved when a new sawbones came into town who just studied this new fangled thing about snake bites..
Either the kid got saved but crippled or it was solved after his death.. There might have been a step dad between the boy and his dad.. The venom is forever, pretty much...

I had a friend who lived in Grants Pass that lived the mountain man's lifestyle (died 10 years ago at 105, panned his last summer). He panned for gold each summer, then lived on the proceeds for the other part of the year. I loved his philosophy about killing rattle snakes. Even if the snake was minding its own business, he'd shoot it on the theory that while that one wasn't a problem it's offspring could be.

You know your a real animal killer when you can kill a bird with a low slung 3rd gen T/A. The 2 I killed this year though were with a super duty and a Toyota Cressida.
