I too visited the sand hills this year and layed out some of the tin you probaly saw! We found tons of good places down there but struck out for the most part. We found one blk rat which was hit right before we got there, 5 blk racers, 2 Crown snakes, 3 Coachwhip sheds and 2 legless lizards(not the Eastern but the other sp found in the state). No venomous though:-(
We had much better luck closer to the coast, around the Willmington area and found 3 coppers! No Crotalus sp however:-((sucks too cause that the Northern most range of ademanteus and although we were relisitic and didnt expect to find one, it sure woulda been nice!
Anyway, just my report from the area. BTW, I went to Hyde county 2 weeks ago and saw a bucnh of DOR cottons, includeing 1 almost 4 fter! and 1 DOR Intergrade chunkhead. Also, some various Nerodia yada yada yada. I did see either a huge cotton or caney dart right in front of my truck while cruseing down a dirt road wich was heavily overgrown and although I did make one hell of an effort to crab the b@#$ard(diveing out mny truck while it was still moveing!)it got into the swamps before I could eve get a look see. Next time dag nab it!
All the best,
P.S Please be vigilant of the laws in NC people! All native venomous in the state minus Agkistrodon are now protected and it is a no no to collect them! F@G a knows thjis and have been setting up stings!
: : Hey, is there anyone out there who knows of some good sites in North Carolina for finding copperheads and rattlesnakes? I live in the Triangle, and from time to time I drive out looking for various critters, but for these snakes in particular. To date, I have only come upon an intergrade copperhead, and that was in a parking lot of all places, and I wasn't even the one who initially found it.
: I'm in the Asheboro area. Been here about 2 months-I've cruised a few copperheads at night on country roads right by my house.They are common if the conditions are right. I've seen several more DOR's and I know where the horridus are just haven't had the time to really search for them. I don't hunt alot in the summer, but if you drop me a line I might be up for some nite cruising.
: RE: sandhills-been there once and saw a DOR pine snake that broke my heart-a BIG female and alot of DOR E.obsoleta and alot of lizards. Got some good tin spots down there for fall or spring.
: I would be interested in hearing from other 'hot herpers' in the area.
