Although many timber rattlers meet their deaths at the hands of people or by automobiles, the fastest way to kill timber rattlesnake populations is by destroying or altering the places they need to hunt, hibernate and live. Today, every state inhabited by timber rattlesnakes has laws protecting the species, including Texas. In Texas, it is listed as a threatened species. This means that people cannot take, transport, have in their possession or sell timber rattlesnakes.

That is an awesome pic! up

I agree, don't hijack the thread, I think Pawpaw has exceeded the statute of limitations.

I saw one up in Howe a few years ago, was over 4 ft.
