snake boots. I don't use a light if I don't have to. If I need a light I use red.

Green and snake boots. Buy boots or at minimum some snake gaiters.

Green light only if needed. I wear rubber boots and have never seen a rattlesnake in the dark on the way to the stand.

I wear rubber boots and green headlamp when it is really dark. It paid off for me last season when I nearly stepped on this little fella. It was a cool morning and he didn't move until I rammed a muzzy broad head through his melon.

I follow a caliche road to the blind, if there is any natural light at all I don't need a light to get there. Snake boots are a must in our area.

Same here with the exception of one spot I hunt. Ran over two Rattle Snakes at night just this past week out in your neck of the woods.

I have a multi-color headlamp that turns on only when I need it. Rarely actually need it unless during bow season when I'm having to get my climber and everything situated so I don't fall to my death.

I let my eyes adjust and just walk in. Probably wouldn't be able to see a snake but just don't like turning on a light. Snake boots aren't for me but a lot of people seem to like them. I do hate walking face first into spider webs though!

I use white light from flashlight or light on my cap. I really don't think the light spooks game. I am much more conscious and deliberate about the direction of my approach based on tne wind than I am about using a light. When 50 degrees or more I definitely have my snake boots on.

Green or red depending on which one I grab first in my backpack. Hunt in the East Texas river bottoms and we have Cotton Mouths and they give no warning so its snake boots unless it cold.
