I know snakes are pretty well gone for the year in TN. They are out and about, but as it cools off they will be less feisty and less out than they are in warmer months. Where I am at there are a lot of snakes that I don’t want to tangle with. I’m used to copperheads and they don’t bother me as much as rattlesnakes do, and there are healthy populations of rattlesnakes in the area that I will be hunting, and I have seen a huge one about 5 miles away as the crow flies. I am going to buy snake boots, just a layer of caution that hopefully is never an actual need. I’m looking at stuff in the $100 to $150 range. I have bass pro, Dunham’s, and academy all nearby as well as the online places to shop at, but since it’s a shoe I will try something on before buying it. Any suggestions are welcomed.
