I always use a replacement tube on the road but take the punctured tube home with me. Then, on a rainy Saturday, I'll get out my patching stuff and fix however many I've saved up.
On a hole that big I'd make an attempt using a larger than typical patch and test it overnight in my workshop. If it holds, I'm good to go. Generally on a snake bite a single patch will cover both slits.
