Aaron, I cannot speak for others but, my son and I have hunted the same 8 - 10 ranches for 30 years and have not taken females for many years. We usually will not collect a snake that is less than 4 feet. Again, this is not a justification. This is management, much the same way a rancher manages his deer herd. Taking the mature specimens. We all know that a WDB is capable of breeding at 3 feet long. The ranchers we know know that a 3 ft WDB probably is not big enough to kill livestock. They do know that a 5 footer can kill livestock. So, most of them will want the large one harvested.

Believe me it is good to hear a rational response.
