Yes, I have eaten rattlesnake many times. Itís quite popular in my hometown in VA. I have not had any since I moved to Chattanooga. It does not taste bad, but there is just too much work involved for a little bit of meat. Alligator is much better. For those who live anywhere near Chatt, you can get gater at Uncle Budís Catfish house in East Ridge. It cut into small pieces and deep fried. It is pretty good, but itís much better when you get your own gater and can cut the tail into steaks and grill them.
