Congratulations goes out to the winners of the 2018 Okeene Rattlesnake Hunt, Ron Thompson from Longdale, who is our Local Division winner bringing in a 65" rattlesnake.

For our Professional Division winner, Pat Meek from Waynoka, brought in a massive 75 1/4th" rattler that would end up winning the hunt. Pat's brother and long time snake hunt attendee, Mike Meek, unfortunately passed away earlier this month. In honor and in tribute to his brother, Pat decided to the enter the snake into competition under his brother's name. Mike was a regular competitor in our Professional Division for years and will be missed.
