Re: Snake Bit Kits

In 3 years of hiking the trails in the Great Smoky Mountains Natl. Park, 
I have seen (1), one, uno.....Eastern Diamondback rattler.

I'm not a weight-phobe....so I'd say if it gives you comfort, go ahead 
and carry a sanke bite kit.  Ill Flatlander is right however....the 
chances are SLIGHT, you'll ever use the thing.  You'll just be carrying 
weight....course it makes a good conversation piece.  Snake gaiters are 
another possiblility...but those are even heavier.
