Chuck, you probably mean Bloomfield Hills (the city) and Oakland County. I won't be able to be there at that time, but I grew up in Oakland County. It is an early time of the year and seeing animals is weather dependent. Some are just emerging, and you'll do best with baskers, such as Eastern garters and blue racers.

You'd probably do best to head north in Oakland Co. to Pontiac or further to the northern parts of the county. The Metro Parks are nice and have good herps, but of course..no collecting. Massasaugas can still be found in northern parts of the county in and around swampy areas. Some of the Metro Parks have Nature Centers that are decent.

Also, note that you would be in a highland area where there are a lot of small lakes. Hunting near these lakes is good and there's quite a variety of fresh water turtles. PS: Bloomfield Hills and surroundings is not a good area to hunt in :)

Later, TC.


:I will be in Michigan from May 7th - 13th. I will be in the Bloomfield and Oakland areas. Is anyone interested in getting out in the Field? I will NOT be collecting just taking Pics. Or does anyone know any spots I should hit? I have not herped in Michigan befor. I am from CT and would be willing to repay the favor if anyone is ever in my area.

:Cheers and Thanks,

:Chuck
