I live in Texas i understand timber rattlers are against the law to kill. If someone brings a timber rattlesnake to a taxidermist in Texas do you have to ask where it was killed at? Is it against the law to tan the hide of a timber rattlesnake? What if it was harvested in a state the they are not illegal to kill them? Or is it a situation where its best to just keep away from it? Any insite would be apprecaited.
