Rattlesnake Hunter Game
This Game is meant for Cub Scouts.
6 to 12 scouts.
tin with dried beans in it.
sock stuffed with paper.
Scouts stand in a big circle. Two scouts are blindfolded inside the circle. One is the hunter and has the sock to use to kill the rattlesnake. The other is the rattlesnake with his tin rattler.
The hunter counts to 5 while the rattlesnake quietly moves where ever he wants in the circle. When the hunter yells, 'Rattlesnake!', the snake freezes and shakes his rattle twice.
When the hunter hears the rattle, he quickly moves to where he thinks the snake is hiding and takes a swing at the snake. If he hits the snake with the sock, he scores a point. If he misses or hits with his hand or arm, the snake scores a point.
The snake moves away while the hunter again counts to 5. The hunter gets 5 turns at killing the snake and then its another pair's turn.
