Default Got My Timber Rattler Prints From Onestringer

Got my Limbsation Timber Rattler snake skin prints in from Onestringer today. I like em.

They come with a very satin finish, but I put one coat of clear poly on them. All I had was gloss. I'll put a coat of satin on them later.

The pictures don't do them justice. Not even close.

Because they’re very illegal to kill. I believe they’re listed as either endangered or threatened. I have yet to see one in the wild. Would love to though.

Just FYI, we are one of the few states where it’s illegal to kill them...haven’t checked in a while but I’m pretty sure it’s legal in Oklahoma and Arkansas among others. So they can be purchased legally BUT your point is valid and if I had them in my possession I would want a receipt showing that I purchased them legally. That said those onestringers look awesome and a snake or snakes didn’t die (and you don’t have to worry about proving you aren’t in possession of contraband)!

They look nice. If I had a bow that shot well and was ugly they would work great. Plus no work to prepare a skin etc. May try some of the copperhead ones.
I'm still gonna kill every rattler I can though..

Yeah, I was trying to get an angle with less glare.
Pretty cool camo.

I had Bob Morrison ( bows) apply real skins ( timber rattler, cane brake) to a bow I purchased from him. He does an absaultly fantastic job of applying them also.

In Texas, having "timber rattler", or "eastern diamondback" skins in any form other than fake can cause you some serious trouble.

It does not matter how you got them, who you got them from, or in what form you are using/displaying them. Being in possession of them is all it takes to be breaking the law.

You might go forever, and never have a problem, OR you might have that one time when you get hammered for it with a very big hammer.

Saw two in one day a couple of weeks ago. Kill one in oklahoma. Was told by OKRATTLER that they’re protected in Texas, but not in Oklahoma.
