    My preferred snake weapon is a 12 gauge. Or, a truck tire.

    Lmao!
    My buddy killed one in our deer camp in 2010 with a 19dw lb bow and bad arrow. He was a mere 3 yards away coiled up against a empty gas tank. I would bring chaps just in case. I would practice shooting at 3 or 4 yards with a bow. Now I would have something that is 5 feet long so you can chop his head off. They get really pissed when they have a arrow through them though! Good luck!

    Haha. Wanna see me squirm in my pants, put a snake in front of me.

    One of my old mans good friends shot himself in the foot trying to shoot a snake, he is more afraid of them then me!

    My fear started when I was a kid dove hunting, I shot one with my 20.ga and my uncle told me to put it in my vest so we can eat it, that friggin thing just squirmed and squirmed for 20 minutes! His head was removed as well. I remember walking and jumping a rabbit out of a bush in front of me and jumping 10 feet in the air!!! That's all it took.

    I do have some chainsaw chaps, would protect the front and sides pretty well.
