    Any one out there been bit before. I have been in a pit of Rattlesnakes and by staying calm since they were all asleep and I had not yet stepped on one they were just sleeping in the sun I walked out without even waking them. I am now more careful watching where I am walking rather then just talking to the guy I was out in the dessert with. I was walking back after hitting a boulder with the axle of my truck and we were talking about what the wives would say about the damaged truck and trying to get our stories straight and figure out what to do about the rig with a broken drive line. We were not paying any attention on where we were walking. Myself I still worry more about ticks then I do snakes at least snakes are big enough to be seen. Plus I never have yet heard of anyone being bitten only scared.:eek
    So once again I ask has anyone out there been bit by a snake before and if so what did you end up doing about it.
