We've pulled together some snake boots, all of them in Realtree camouflage, for your turkey hunter this Christmas and the coming spring season.

The boot is also offered with extended sizing for women and is available in a youth style as well.

Snake Boots and Turkey Hunting

Wearing snake boots in rattler and cottonmouth country will give you peace of mind, for sure, and often enough blisters if they aren't broken in well enough (the lesser of the two evils).

It's best to slip them on anyway, even if snakes can sometimes still do damage.

While a lot of snakes where we turkey hunt aren't venomous, plenty are of course. As the notion goes, snakes would rather avoid you than have to deal with you, but people still get bitten. Statistics vary. Sources routinely indicate thousands of folks suffer snakebite injuries each year. And some die.

Be careful out there, turkey hunters.

LaCrosse Venom Snake Boot

As a kid, at the suggestion of my dad, we routinely carried a canary-yellow plastic snakebite kit when outdoors hunting or fishing rural north-central Pennsylvania (plenty of rattlers there), which for the record was never once opened.

Then there was the time I didn't have it stashed on me and almost reached down to pull myself up on a big rock where a timber rattler was innocently sunning itself on a warm spring morning.

It looked at me like: You just caught a break, bud, now scram.
