Don't own any SB kits. Been in the AL woods all my life and really dont see many snakes except for the usual water holes that act like magnets for snakes. Probably should place more time into obtaining a kit but have generally just stayed away from the creatures and they slither off without provocation.

Thanks Dr. Bones.....I will check out the website and order a few of those kits....the area in east tennessee is well known for copperheads and timber rattlers....and on top of that..I have really really bad fear of snakes...to me the only good snake is a stone cold dead snake......;)

hey ruger, the type of kit your talking about is pretty much useless! they tend to do more damage than good!! you should NEVER use a scalpel blade on a bite! dr.bones is right when he says go with the sawyer kit.

It has been my experience that snakes will not hurt you.....they make you hurt yourself trying to get out of their way, running into trees and the guy behind you. It is like the cartoon cat which goes in all different directions at the same time. The snake is watching you and laughing his tail off. The rattle you hear is just their way of saying BOO!

 

Having said all of that I do prefer the extractor.

Iwouldn't go anywhere around here without a snakebite kit,while I agree that the Sawyer is best for snakebites,I've found the little suction cup out of the other kind works great on scorpion stings. Out here everything out there bites,stings,or will jab ya! OH,AND SNAKE-if you're gonna bite,should somebody get you a rabies shot?lol

It has been quite a while since I saw some one get Snake bit. And it is never a pretty sight. But most of the forum members survive.

What does not kill you makes you stronger and more tolerant. Also makes one a better person.

Well, maybe a few meds could help! Something for the paranoia, and something for the rage, a little something for the dementia and a few for fun but otherwise yeah just as you are!

The V.A. sent the medication and a 5 foot long sheet of side effects and instructions {that I never read} and I

have been taking them as prescribed but alas they cannot alter reality enough to fool me into being a sheeple

but I have noticed that I feel much better when I tell someone to kiss my azz

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
