Just wondering if anyone has ever used these snake proof gaiters
: Turtleskin SnakeArmor Snake Gaiters
I was informed at work today that it is best to start wearing something like this or have the snake moved
(yeah with a shotgun) if in the way of us doing our job, and since it is against Pa law to kill rattlers, other than finding a new job which is not an option I need something. Any suggestions????

I've never heard of anywhere that ya can't shoot rattlers. And I live in the most communist state in the country. That being said.....whi is gonna know if you shoot with a .22 and snake shot? .45 works well also.

Snakes inject venom on contact . Any snake gaitor should work fine. Jeans would probably work most of the time,but with rattlesnakes, best to not take s chance. Here in Ky copperheads are common.we have rattlers too but they're not all that common

I've always wondered (and this would be my luck...): What are the odds of shooting at a snake at close range, and having some of the shot ricochet off a rock? Since you're shooting into the ground at fairly close range, seems to me that could be a big risk!

valid point, given that two basic rules of gun safety are don't shoot the ground and don't shoot a tree. I actually had a friend years ago that shot a tree with a .38 and the bullet richocjeted and hit him in the belly .

With a long gun stick the barrel down towards his face and move it back and forth he will track it prior to his head being blowed off LOL
