I have found alot of edb's in Ocala including one about 8ft. so there around.When you head a little north to Gainsville just before there is a place called Paynes Prarie(just off I-75 and there is a sign just before the exit)If I remember correctly.It is loaded with edb's but no collecting.When you goto the Tampa area there is a place just to the north called Croom management area if I remember correctly its exit 64 and 65 on I-75 the Fl. National Cemetery is there and there should be a sign before the exit.I have found alot of differant species of snakes there(coachwhips,pygmys,edb's,corns,yellowrats,Florida Kings.Its got a wide range of areas to look,its got sand dunes,wet hammocks down toward the Withalacochie river probably mispelled,dry pinewoods.Weeki Wachi is pretty good to but I have not found any of the snakes you are looking for there,I have found pygmys,kingsnakes,yellowrats,corns and cottonmouths.I lived in St. Pete Fl. for 20 years and only found one Indigo and it was a long time friend of mine it lived in my backyard for probably 12 years,just about eveyday he would be sunning himslf on my fence.And I have only found 3 pinesnakes and they where toward Orlando.If you goto Paynes Praire,and Croom you have a very very good chance of finding your edb.I hope this helps a little if you have any questions on directions email me at dam6945117@aol.com and I will be a little more specific.Good luck
