The only smooth green snake I have ever seen have been from up north in Pa.,when I used to live there and collect. Not sure if you guys have them out there?? This time of year early mornings look for stuff baskin, up until it starts to get hot. After a good rain is good it will get stuff moving and an hour or so before dark until 10-11p.m. you should be able to find stuff roadcruising. Lizards during the day can be a pain in the butt. If you start just before daylight go out and find places where you can go flippin trash or rocks,just becareful where you put your fingers when flippin.Good luck and have fun and always be safe in the field.

Just be careful. I don't go field collecting, but I know there are some beauties out there. If you catch something please show pics!
