As you specifically mentioned Southern Nevada Mojave Desert, if you come across a snake and considering the worst case its a venomous snake, then its very likely to be a Rattlesnake or a Side Winder or an Adder. The best way to avoid trouble with venomous reptiles is to be aware of your surroundings and observe some rules for your own safety. Most bites ...

I'm no herpetologist, but in my experience, snakes are in the "you don't bug me, I won't bug you" category. If you're sitting in a blind and are still, you aren't likely to surprise them. Surprising a snake or making it feel endangered is what causes most bites. If you're still, they'll tend to just pass by without bothering you, and will likely detect you ...

This would be the preferable option if your rifle has a picatinny style mounting rail. Some other items to ...

The issue isn't really variable vs. fixed power - it's whether the scope in question ("Weaver 3-9x40" is probably at least a dozen different scopes) is suitable for a high-power rifle or not. Most rimfire (and probably air-rifle) scopes are going to have a 30mm or smaller objective; I'd venture to guess that with a 40mm objective, it will be fine on a ...
