I could not even find a stick. It would make a nice hat band. My hatband fell off last week. He was long enough to make a good belt. I shot a short video on my camera. You can even see the beads bouncing in his rattler. If anyone can do youtube I can send it so it can be posted.

At least the ones that rattle give some warning. Not like a copperhead that is aggressive enough to come after you.

How do you "cure" a snake skin to use on something like that?

I have just peeled them off the snake then salted it. After a week or so then rub with mineral oil or lanolin to keep it soft and help retain the color. I am sure there are more scientific methods available. I then take the skin and attach it to a leather strip (any stiffener) to help keep the shape for whatever I am making.

Nice looking model 12 Winchester there Ed. Is it yours?
With friends like that rattler I'd part company, like two parts. Head and belt.
