I’ve tried eating them various ways...never has been good enough to be worth the effort. We come across them regularly and usually only kill them if they’re around buildings or our deer stands. This one was about 5 feet, which is probably average size down here.

I know they make snake-proof gaiters, boots, chaps etc., but do standard gaiters offer any extra level of protection from snake bites?

Snake proof ones are made out of a heavy nylon or material where the fangs can not penetrate. Most standard gaiters are just thin nylon and really wouldn't provide any extra protection.
