No longer lurking

Hi - I've been lurking for sometime & thought I'd introduce myself.
Lifelong Texan - according to my sister the family historian - my ancestors were in the second S.F. Austin colony.
I have loved reptiles & amphibians since a child. My dad used to take us fishing but as soon as the fish stopped biting I went exploring for any herps. Although I must admit any snake I saw in the water while I was also in the water was assumed to be a water moc & did my best to get out of the water fast.
As a child in the 50's & 60's it was common to catch ornate box turtles & horned lizards in our DFW suburb.They are long gone or at least extremely rare in that old neighborhood now.I also caught many horned lizards while I lived in Amarillo & the occasional Crotaphytus & tiger salamander.
I.m not much of a joiner but I am considering joining one of the herp societies to meet kindrid souls & honestly to find the decent places to herp. I would probably stink at night hunts as my night vision isn't the best in the world.
Can somebody explain to me at what point you need a Texas non-game license? I would like to collect some Coleonyx brevis for a small breeding group - if anybody could give me any clues as to where to look, I would greatly appreciate. One day I would also like to photograph Crotaphytus reticulatus & Coleonyx reticulatus. I know it's not common for the regulars to pass out their good spots to total strangers especially for rarer animals but maybe I can gain somebodies trust enough to help me out.
You guys (& females) who post pics & details of your outings are the best. I live vicariously through your stories
Well I've probably bored everybody enough by now. I hope to be able to post something interesting sometime soon.
I will be heading down towards Laredo soon. Anybody willing to give me some clues for herping possiblities. I am mostly interested in colubrids & lizards but,hey, any herp is good.
