: Is it pretty clear cut what you can and can't do as far as road cruising and shining the cuts are concerned.

Well, the Dept of Parks-n-Wildlife may think it's clear-cut, but it's not quite as clear-cut as they'd think.
From what I gather, you can park your car off the roadway and WALK down a road, but you can't appear to be hunting FROM the road (driving slowly and stopping frequently). You can hunt from the road on private property (how many landowners have a network of suitable roads on their property?) with the landowner's permission.

:If there is a website that amplifies this question I would appreciate the link.

It doesn't cover EVERYTHING, though.

:I know the obvious no tresspassing or collecting protected animals, how about the Big Bend region, if I am caught with a snake there (not captured there), must I release it if pulled over by a warden within park boundaries??

The safest bet is to not bring any snakes INTO the park. It's asking for trouble. The next-safest would be to check in at the ranger station immediately when you arrive and let them see the snakes you have and get something on paper with them acknowledging that fact. I would probably plan on visiting the park first thing on my trip, to avoid the issue altogether.
