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.
