Not sure where you found that info your passing. They are legal to hunt or kill in the case of nuisance as far I know.


It's illegal to kill them in Texas

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.

Rattlesnake Dates
& Daily Limits
March 1-June 30, 2014.
The following reptiles are legal to harvest with
no daily limit: prairie rattlesnake, western diamondback
rattlesnake, timber rattlesnake and
massasauga.

I found this in the ODWC hunting guide for 2013-2014. I had no idea Texas was that different on the snake laws. Thanks for the info.
