    • You will rise again as these are waiting for you-John
    • It must be dumb luck, but I've seen more rattlers in the "burbs" of  Sandy  Aygo County, than 12 mi NNW of Rich Hill( none seen in the latter location).   However, the following critter, there's no much of a defense for, unless you're quick with a knife( even then,  it  still might kill you before it dies) or are intently aware of your surroundings- which I think is thebest defense so as toavoid confrontation entirely.  Watch your 6!

    • Darn it-Ive been looking for a used one-let me know if the deal falls thru-Thanks Mike C...
    • I've had three snake strikes. First one hit my all leather boots at least 6 times before I could move away from him.  Other two times the hits were on my leg guards! Two things I always do when prospecting, put on the legs guards and a GPS fix on the truck before I leave that spot. BOTH HAVE PAID OFF!
    • I did test for magnetic response & having held it close to a magnet on a string, I can say that there was no response whatsoever. I understand your point on the glacial transportation, but again the problem I have with that is to do with the rocks condition. Take a close look at photo no 2 on my original post - The photo on the left shows a close up of where the vesicles open out & become exposed to the exterior, you can follow some of the vesicle chambers back into the stone & the penetration is significant. If this rock is volcanic, then at some point (>10,000 years), the rock was transported to the find location & assuming that it has been in the ground, then those vesicle chambers would be infilled, at least to some extent with debris. However this is not the case, the interior of the rock is pristine, which leads me to believe that it is recent.
