Herp hunting in east TN

Hi! I was wondering about what type of herps one can expect to find in the eastern TN area from say Knoxville - Bristol. Any tips on good places, or anyone willing to hunt with me when the weather accomdates. I'm interested in finding most any thing, inverts, amphibians and of course, reptiles

Thanks for the help

Well, there is at least one person in east TN that likes to go hunting reptiles

I'm minutes from VA and NC as well, if you would want to go out and wander through the woods looking for creatures. Isn't there anyone else around here into walking and looking for things in the wilderness ???

With my tarantulas at home, I'm not at all scary

Hey, nice to meet you. I am from Gate City, though I live in GA now. The old high way that connects Gate City and Bristol, its called the Gate City Highway and also US 58 or 421 is a good road to run for rat snakes, timber rattlesnakes and copperheads. Go all the way to Gate City, then head north on 71 toward Nicklesville, VA. Turn left after you cross the first little bridge on 71, I think that road is 792, you will see a mill damn on your left in about ˝ miles. At the bottom of that damn back about 400 yards is an excellent place for water snakes. I collected 4 sp from that area as a child. Probably dozens of each. There is also a good verity of turtles there. I rarely get up that way any more, but I would love to have a pair or rattlesnakes from my old hometime, if you find any timbers in Scoot County, VA drop me a line. Thanks –chuck
