first off, I"m not a taxidermist, or any type of sort of expert on tanning. Secondly, i don"t death snakes out of fear or for pleasure.Anyway, from time come time i see human being kill snakes once I"m fishing in eastern oregon. This to be the case year before last, ns heard a commotion in the camp beside me and wandered over to view what was going on. A west diamondback had actually gone through their camp and also they had actually chased it into the sage and also killed it by cram rocks in ~ it... Ns asked if they wanted me to get rid of it and also they stated "absolutely", they were pretty shocked as soon as I lopped turn off the smashed head and also skinned and also gutted that in front of them, pitched the guts and head in the river and also thanked them because that lunch.When I gained home I placed the skin in the freezer and forgot around it till last week as soon as I did an overdue cleaning and also inventory, thawed it out and started a hat band.If you want to understand the correct means to tan a line skin, look the up. This is the wrong way to execute it.soaked it in antifreeze, 24 hours:
*
made a snake board ( pretty simple, together you deserve to see ), rinsed the skin well, gained some dental floss and also a sewing needle handy:
*
strung it up, I"ve uncovered the string works much better than pond or staples, it"s simpler to readjust the sample in a straight line when stretching:
*
let it dry for 3 days, I placed some "vitamin E" on the flesh next to soften it increase ( the kind that come in the gelatin caps, basically vit. E, gelatin, and also glycerin ) and cut it off the board:
*
the following thing I do is trim the edges, and also glue it come a item of leather reduced to form with consistent old contact cement, push it to cure and also slap it on a hat.Here"s one i did around 11 year ago, lasted through sun, wind, rain, hail, etc. Outlasted the cap too:
*
so that"s exactly how I do it, the not correct way.( Please note : THIS IS THE INCORRECT method TO TAN A line SKIN )later--
