What is your strategy when encountering rattlers while detecting in the desert. Do you immediately leave the area, freeze and look around when you hear the rattle, attack with your pick, leave the snake be? How far can they strike at you? I 've never had such an encounter so need to have a good strategy for when it does happen? And does an electric shock stop the venom if bitten or use a suction cup thing or what do you do for first aid,especially if you are alone and a mile or more from your truck?
Do you use the 1 cup Nuggetbuster headphones or detect without headphones so you hear the rattlesnakes?
