Snake skinning

Is it possible to skin a snake trough the mouth? If I break its neck, and then pull the stump out trough the mouth?

Nopt if you ever want to use it for a full mount. You will never get a girthy eastern diamondback or large girthed snakes mid section throuhg the 1/4 diameter throat section without stretching it to the breaking point. I have seen some nice rattlers tubed through the mouth, but the skin was so overstretched in the neck and throat area, it was no good for nothing but sa wall mount

I live in Noway, and we have quite few snakes. I was thinking of an european adder.

I really need to know how to preserve a copperhead snake to use as a hat band. We killed three of them in a week, but did not know how to preserve them. I live in Oregon, but the snakes are in Oklahoma. If it can be done there, that would be wonderful, but otherwise, how should they be sent to me to do the preserving? Your help would be greatly appreciated as this is a serious question. Thank you for your time.
