I've seen several

I've seen several Cottenmouths this year and a few rattlesnakes in places their normally wouldn't be any. All this water has got the snakes movin around. I havn't ever worn snake boots though my grandad won't leave the house without his.

I remember a few years back I did some serious pre season scouting and found a really nice place for mine and his stands. Lots of buck movement around and I was really looking forward to opening morning. We usually go into our stands before sun up. As I was getting to my stand I heard my grandads shotgun go off twice. I knew it was too early for him to have shot anything so I mucked my way through the swamp over to his stand.

He had shot a rattlesnake about 6 foot long that was resting at the bottom of his ladder stand. I wasn't too happy with my grandad because he totally blew our spot for a few days. By time things cooled down and we were able to hunt the spot again it was covered in other hunters. After that incident I bought my grandad a pair of Irish Setters snake boots. They were a little fancy for him but I insisted that he doesn't leave the house without them lol...

I plan on wearing my Military issue bates desert boots this weekend and hopefully I don't get snake bit.

Venomous snakes up north here

Venomous snakes up north here are few and far between. Plus, once it gets cold there wouldn't be any use for them anyways.

I hunt in the South Carolina

I hunt in the South Carolina lowcountry and like American express, I don't leave home without them. We have copperheads, canebrake rattlers, eastern diamondbacks, and moccasins. When you walk through the woods before daybreak or after dark, snakeboots are a good insurance policy. Even when the weather gets a little cool they are still out and about.

I just had my first run in

I just had my first run in with a rattlesnake the other night. It was a long hike out in the dark knowing that I could get lit up by one at any time.
