Hi all. Was searching the net and sent here as I was told this is the place where the snake experts hang out. So here goes...please no judging...I am simply terrified of snakes. I am a 39 year old red blooded American but am just scared to death of snakes especially rattlesnakes. I am going on a hunting trip to the sandhills in Nebraska in Cherry county in November at a place called Merit Reservoir. I have heard this area can be crawling with rattlers and frankly that just scares me to death. I will be there, in the sandhills near the lake on a hunting trip tromping through the woods and area...how likely is it that I will encounter a rattlesnake in mid November in Nebraska? Do they hibernate at a certain temperature until spring? Do I need to invest a couple hundred bucks in some snake proof boots in case I get in close contact with one? Thanks guys just really scared here but don't want to cancel the trip over this what seems to be irrational fear of rattlesnakes. Please give me your thoughts. Thank you.
