Walked up on a cottonmouth today at 2 pm under deer stand, I was not looking for one but he found me. Almost stepped on him and I heard his tail twitching and saw him trying to strike me. I am glad I decided to hunt this spot in a stand and not on the ground. Keep an out out with these warm temps....

The one time my snakeboots saved me was in early January (cottonmouth sunning himself on a pond's earthen dam).

I ALWAYS wear them while working in the woods, year-round. I actually find them quite comfortable, and they provide good ankle support.
