    Last September my hunting partner tangled with a rattlesnake and the snake won. After a few days in the hospital, he received a bill for $67,267.27 for snake bite treatments. Antivenin is about $10,000 per dose.

    My new Chippewa, all leather, made in the USA, snake proof boots from Lou Taulberts Ranch Outfitters in Casper cost me about $300. I always wanted a pair, but kept putting off buying them. It only took one look at the cost of a snake bite to get me headed to the store.

    A total of $67,567.27 in local spending just from stepping on a snake.
