Raider, if you're in Texas, you're in rattlesnake country. Keep your eyes open and don't get too close to them. If you're seeing a lot of them in your hunting area, snake boots or chaps and a snake charmer may give you some peace of mind. Be mindful of where you step till you figure out where you are most likely to see them and why. That's about it.
