Re: Noob questions re: technique, safety, etc

Thanks a million to everyone for your replies. Do I really need special snake gaiters? I've never seen them, are they stiff and limit your flexibility? Are they heavy? The only gaiters I've ever worn are my hiking gaiters (OR crocodiles). I doubt they would do anything against a snake bite. FYI I am...

Noob questions re: technique, safety, etc

Hey guys, I have some noob / stupid questions; hope you will bear with me on these... I'm heading over to central/eastern WA soon for some nature photography. Basically any and all wildlife is my target. I've never been there; the habitat and surroundings will be foreign to me. I need to do more res...
