Den of Death
This is the place where all the snakehunters bring the snakes to display. Come witness hundreds of snakes on display and demonstrations by some of the best snakehandlers from the area. Get up and close and personal with the
Western Diamondback Rattlesnake (hundreds of them!)
Truly a MUST-SEE event at the Okeene Rattlesnake Hunt.
The Butcher Shop always attracts a crowd at the hunt.
Watch how handlers prepare rattlesnakes for consumption.
Every part of the snake is used so nothing is left to waste.
The handlers demonstrate cleaning techniques
as well as provide rattlesnake education and awareness.
