You probably don't have to worry about them losing their instincts in that amount of time. In fact I bet if you turned a 5 year old cornsnake born in captivity loose it would have a good chance of surviving. Instinct is about all they have.
What you do need to worry about is introducing something to the wild.
I'd maintain all snakes captured seperately in strict quarrantine, for their sake as well as that of your personal collection. Also keep track of where individuals were captured so they could be returned there.
