NEVER pick up a rock until you check around to see what critters might be using the shelter it provides. Carry a stick with you. You can use it to roll the rock away from you before you pick it up and to aid in walking over rough terrain. Wear boots when possible. They will not only support your feet and ankles when clambering around but will also shield them from any unexpected attack or mesquite and cactus thorns.
SEEK HELP ASAP, if someone in your party should tangle with a rattlesnake and try to keep that person from panicking until help arrives. If you can, take a cellphone with you on any expedition and make sure it is fully charged. You can summon emergency help if someone in your party has the misfortune to fall or get bitten!
ALWAYS carry a snake-bite kit in your first-aid bag and know how to use it (in case help is too far away)!
