    Pretty sure snakes are deaf but if you stamp around they can sense vibration.

    Got plenty of venemous snakes here but they don't bother you unless you do something stupid like provoke them or stand on them.

    Just look where you are walking.

        Chippewa snake boots, my friend. A wonderful investment. I wear them every day. They go all the way up to your knees.

        I figure if a rattler wants to hurt me so bad that he aims for my junk, it was just my time to go.

          Got bitten by a little snake a few years ago, no anti venom
          never went to to the quacks till 4 days after

          Didn't know it was a snake bite till he found a couple of bit marks

          Trust me you don't want to be bitten by one, took 3 years to recover fully?
          me leg still plays up occasionally in the cold weather

          Was a Tiger snake, maybe 3 ft long, should of killed it when I first seen it, had been hanging around the water tanks for a while

          Saved its life once, it got stuck in me water tank a few months before it got me

                  Turpentine on your pants cuffs. We used it as a child when picking black berries and gathering nuts in appalachian mts. The idea was that snakes taste and locate prey with their tongues and turpintine is not something they encounter so they avoid it. It worked. The areas we gathered in were infested with both copper heads and rattlers and none of were ever bitten. Also, if you ever smell a strong odor of cucumbers while in snake territory, STOP!, you are really close to a copperhead like near or in its strike range.( it is snake piss you smell).
