Especially if it is not a remote area, the danger from rattlesnakes really isn't that great. I live in Oregon and the rattlesnakes have been out in force in several of the most popular hiking areas right around the city I live in (Eugene). Despite many sightings I've only heard of one bite, and when people get bit it usually makes the local news because people love to talk about such things. The kid who got bit got hit on the hand was fine. He went to the local ER, got some antivenin and suffered little more than if he'd been stung by a wasp. They really aren't that big a deal.

Edit: Oh, by the way, the kid was four years old and didn't even receive the antivenin on the same day as the bite.
