I might sound dumb but once I was headed in below abrams falls when I ran into a pretty good size rattler. I had a guide with me and he was in front. He took his rod tip and just worked the snake off the trail and then we walked right by him with no incident. I always thought rattlers were more aggressive than that. However, my question is do any of you, or would I look stupid to wear snake gaiters when hiking into these areas. If you were down in abrams or deep creek or any of the more remote ares, would a snake bite not become fatal?
