I've got a pair of lacrosse adder snake boots. I bought them during bow season. They are comfortable and I haven't had any problems with them so far.

Cablea's Pinacle's. front zip ups.

Have a pair six yrs old. Now leak. Called them. Soles still good. They want me too send them back. Possible new pair for free! We will see.

In fact I agrued w/ their specialist there that my thinking was that "the boots had seen a good long life", but he said no maybe not... they want to see and maybe replace.

I tell you true, Nothing like Cabela's.

If they had seen a good life, why did you call them?

I have some Lacrosse adder pull on. I got them for Christmas. I have been wearing them around to break them in. So far, they are very comfortable. I also like no laces or zippers.

I have had lacrosse lace up snake boots in the past and they were not comfortable to me at all. I hated them, but these seem to be much better.

I would love to have some Russell.

On the advice of a friend of mine last year, I ordered a pair of Rocky Rattlers from BPS last year. A friend of his bought a pair the year before found them to be the most comfortable snake boot he'd ever worn. After using them for a season, I found his experience to be true... they have laces and a side zip so you can "customize" your fit (I have big calves). In researching the boot, Rocky makes this boot to the specs that BPS demand... and it's a better boot than any other Rocky you would find in another outlet. Light, comfortable, and able to "slip around" quietly.

I still wasn't ready to give up on them, as I had heard such great things. Ran into a buddy who had a pair and said they never leave his closet because the hurt his feet so bad. Since they are moccasin style boots, I am not sure they are right for every foot.

I have a pair of Chippewa boots now. Extremely confortable and I am year 5 or 6 with them. No leaks. Heavier than most boots but it was expected as it's leather and cordura.

You sound like Outback.

No I haven't, but if I unknowingly stepped on one I am sure the snake would consider that harrassment and bite the hell out of me.

I know it's a little cooler up here than down south and spring comes a little later, but why not just wear some comfortable regular hiking boots and then wear a pair of knee high snake leggings on the hot days. Feels alot better on my feet than trying to wear snake boots.
I've stepped on my share of snakes, but I've never seen one that even thought about trying to be aggressive unless it was on up in the summer.

No, but where I hunt I've seen rattlesnakes with heads as big as my fist and a lot of times I'm an hour away from the truck and then over another hour to any hospital. I'm really not that worried since the chances of getting bit are remote but on the other hand the consequences would be worse being so far from any help.Of course in the mountains the snake you encounter may be eye level

My wife gave me a pair of russells about 20 years ago and I couldn't pull them over my calf. I measured my calf it was 13 inchs. I called them and they told me I would have to send them back and have them custom made for more money. So I returned them and never got to try them on. I am not happy with Cabelas either. I have 2 pair of Cabelas boots built by danner and the soles fell of both pairs. 5 years old and maybe worn 30 times. I sent them back and about a month or so they evaluated them and offered me 80% credit for other purchases. I now buy my boots from LL bean.

I like the Bass Pro boots that zip. No I haven't been bitten. I haven't fallen out of a tree either but I still use a harness.

I think my next setup for my feet is going to be this. Just gonna try a pair of the superlight rubber boots and get some of those chaps to wear primarily on Redstone when I feel like I might encounter a cottonmouth in the swamps. I'm not sure I will ever wear them in the mountains with the extra weight I would be carrying around (not to mention the fact that just like Dixiepatriot said...I would prolly end up getting popped on the hand while climbing up through some rocks), but for whatever reason....I'm just not convinced that a rattlesnake is gonna bite you 99% of the time, especially in the temps that I will be turkey hunting. If it's 90 degrees outside, I'll just stay at the house.

One thing we all should do though is start carring vitamin C in our vests. I've read a couple places where a massive dose of vitamin C will put off the effects of a snake bite for a while and buy you a little time to get out of the woods and to a doctor.
