With your folks experience here in MO, are snake boots needed here for turkey or deer hunting? Thanks again for your help.

I don't think so. Guess maybe depends are where you are at. We have rattlers around here but I've yet to come across one in the timber that I know of. I've seen them crossing the road.

I have a pair but not for protection from the snakes. Like Center Punch I use them cause they are much more comfortable than rubber boots and they keep your pants legs from picking up sticktights and more quiet for sneaking up on that Tom. They are also good for ankle support. When you are as fragile as I am you need all the support you can get. Wouldn't want to twist an ankle out in the woods.

Like the rest said, I guess its all personal preference...

I like the rubber boots, but I've never tried the knee-high snake boots so I can't say anything about them either way.
It definately doesn't hurt to be safe though! :pop:

Down here they are a necessity! It's so warm during turkey season that you have to watch for snakes. A few years ago a friend of mine was sitting under a tree on a warm afternoon and dozed off. He woke when he felt something touch him. He looked down to see a black snake (black racer) curling up in his lap. He jumped up and hollered and 3 turkey flew off too. He swears he'll never go to sleep on a stand again!

Snake boots necessary? Very unlikely. But if they make you more comfortable, than why not? I would say your chances are better for winning big in the lottery than of getting bit by a snake. I've also read somewhere can't remember if it was an MDC publication or what, but that no one in Missouri has died from a snakebite.
The boots you have pictured look good, and if they make you feel more comfortable when out in the woods I say go for it. :cool:

Hows the fit on those boots? Just buy the same size as you would normally wear in a tennis shoe? I hate buying clothes or shoes over the web... most of the time, I miss the size!

I bought the same size I would wear in any other shoe. It's a non insulated boot, but has lot of padding. Very comfortable.
