Hello,

There's quite a few posts on this site mentioning close encounters with snakes while bushwalking. We met up with a juvenile tiger snake ourselves last week on Ben Lomond, but only Beck saw him after I walked straight past in the scrub. It does raise the question of what to do if you get bitten a few days walk from the nearest road. Standard first aid talks about imobilising the limb, pressure bandage but no tourniquet these days, and no cutting the bite or anything like that. The next step is getting medical attention asap. And that's the problem if you're a long way out in the bush. So has anyone got a plan?? Carrying an EPIRB is probably to obvious one, but any other ideas??

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
