Default Finished my Snakeskin

I asked a while back how to tan a snake & I forgot to post the finished product.
Originally he was about 6' + & over 8" around. After dried it is still over 5'-6" long.

I was stalking a javelina when this snake got between me & the javi. I hit him with a chunk of wood & ticked him off real good. He turned went into a cactus & I pinned his head down with another chunk of wood. Look up & the javi is back out, so here I go. I can still hear the snake & I turn to look & my dad is jacking with the snake. Javi leaves & I go to keep my dad safe. We broke the cactus back some & I found a lstick about 4' long, reached in to hold his head where my dad could cut it off. Stick breaks off in snakes mouth (snake now really upset) & here i go into the cactus. I have thorns all over me, my dad tries to hold me up & he gets them all in him. After about 15 minutes of pulling thorns we continue on our quest. Finally get the snake out & the rest is history.

I am kinda klutzy!

That would not have made near the story!

I did not want to tear up the skin with a bunch of holes was my main reason.

Sounds like you ended up with a bunch of holes in your skin instead!
