Whether or not gas is being used in Texas is something I cannot comment on. I know it has been used in Oklahoma and is now illegal BUT the fact that in Oklahoma a lot of the hunting happens on private land makes it impossible to enforce.

All the hunt websites have "we won't buy gassed snakes" on their conditions but when many snakes are taken the summer before, that gives them adequate time to ditch the smell. You can find direct quotes from hunters themselves in the Kansas Herpetological Society paper on Rattlesnake Roundups.

Also, something that I have not heard of in Texas is the practice of sewing a snakes mouth shut. This gentleman from Apache, Oklahoma explains for us how it is done.
