the closer to the coast the better. The biggest problem you will run into is that many areas have gotten better at cleaning up the junk piles. Digging through junk is the best way to find stuff in the spring.
NC and SC is difficult because corporate agriculture has devastated the landscape. Still, if you can find areas that have a little agriculture and a little natural habitat and some junk to search through, you will be OK. Explore the little unpaved roads that look like dead ends, people love to dump there.
Here is the best advice, select an area that looks good and dearch it intensively. If you try to cover an area that is too large, you will spend too much time driving. Don't waste your time in the Okeetee, it's all posted. Corn snakes from anywhere along the NC/SC coast are beautiful. In NC, try Brunswick/Columbia County, in SC it's best around Francis Marion National Park. Stay out of GA because collecting NonVenomous stuff is illegal and all land is considered posted against tresspass by default. FL is friendly, anywhere around smaller cities and towns are productive.
