Snake Report

Game and varmint hunting. Deer stalking, hunting with hounds. Culling, hunting feral animals and vertebrate pest control.

Those tiger bites sound pretty nasty thank goodness we don't have them up here as well as the taipan and brown

I think we are all guilty of not wearing boots at some time or other I rarely wear boots now or thongs so I suppose if I get bitten it would be my own silly fault
But I don't bush walk any more with the bad knees

Boots and gaiters up to knee height would pretty much take care of 99% of snake bites wouldn't you say fellas..

I'm surprised the farmer got bit on the foot. Would have thought it sgould be a bit higher

Werent Thongs once called 'Japanese Riding Boots'??

Maybe he thought he WAS wearing boots!

Not sure about Tigers, but if stood on, King Browns will go for the closest exposed flesh, and latch on.
[Unlike Taipans, which tend to strike, and release]

I dont know, grandadbushy; not convinced anyone would survive a couple of bites from a King Brown in the same session, so not sure if I'd be too concerned about Tigers invading....you might already have the biggest and baddest Biteys living at your place!

Yeah Rod that's probably right also I know that if you stood on a taipan he'd bite you more than twice it's very common for them to be a
multiple biter and common there is signs of attempted secondary bites or even more
A lot of the bites are around the knee area and one bloke here was bitten on the hip
When they're agro they'll stand up and hurl themselves at you and depending on the distance he is from you depends how high you are bitten
If he or she is a big snake then the bite can be fairly high not excluding shoulders or the face although there has only been a couple of instances of that happening

Don't know why we're worrying about snakes, seems it's cows and horses that are out to get us. :crazy:
