So I have been told a Rhea cty lease I am on is snake central so I am thinking of buying a set of boots/gaiters or snake boots

The biggest problem I have is 22 inch calves. Hard to find tall boots that fit.

Any others share my affliction?

Try on a pair of Danner's. I have 19 inch calves and they fit fine.

Get some gaiters. You can take them off when you get to your stand and you won't be sweating all the time!

18" here, most of the Rubber boots will not work for me because of calf size.

That being said, I use Rattler Snake Boots by Rocky. They lace up (easy for big calves) and then use the side zipper after you get the size correct for you.

I bought mine at Bass Pro. Hope that helps.

Get the lace up type. Most of the lace ups will expand to accomodate large calves. I have a very old pair of Rocky's and two pair of LaCrosse lace ups and they work fine. My calves are very large as well. You may need to get new laces but the boots should accomodate.
