Default snakes

What do you consider dangerous snakes? There are rattlers over most of the state. You just have to watch for them. I guess I don't think much about them - just used to it I guess.

I consider rattlers to be dangerous, I live in north oregon, southern oregon has most of the poisonous snakes. I was hoping there might be a less dense area in montana with snake population. I thank you for your reply.

Rattlers can be dangerous but just be careful if you're in an area that is known rattler habitat. They usually like it pretty dry.

Default No need to fear.

I grew up in western Montana in a tiny, rural town. I lived there for 18 years, and I rarely saw snakes of any sort. The only time I did was in the rivers and then those were just water snakes. I can't speak for eastern-Montana, but in the West there are few snakes and few bugs. One of the reasons why I always liked it there.

The last thing you should worry about in western Montana is snakes.

West of the Continental Divide, except in very dry areas, there are no rattlesnakes. I believe the rattlesnake is the only poisonous one in the state and can be quite common East of the Divide.

Painful of course. But, untreated rattlesnake bites will be fatal, depending on the size of the snake and the amount of venom, of course. If you are alone and a long way from medical treatment (that can be anywhere in Montana because of the vast distances from wilderness to town) you will be quickly in a hurt-locker.

Living in Western Montana, I was always more afraid of bears and (above that) mountain lions.
