'Kinda thinking of a Sept herp quicky

Post by Tim Borski »

Am I nuts? I visited WI one September several years ago and found nothing beyond browns and redbellies on the roads after dark, smooth greens, hognose and some garters during the days and a few spotted sals, red backs and blue spots in the mornings. Are the milks all under ground and/or should I just bring my fishing tackle? I'm curious...

'Hope everyone is having a great season!

Hi Tim, I have to say, you might be only interested in milks, but I would kill to see that diversity in Wisconsin on a single trip.

Oh, and yes, bring your fishing tackle too!

Weird that you didn't see Milks...Sept. is great for them in the Driftless area. Ben and I found over 60 in one day.

60?!! I've seldom seen that many in a day in June. You two kick butt!

I have seen milk snakes into late October in southern WI.

I am of the same sentiment as "knight crawler" I did a snake survey of the "southwest savanna" region in SW WI and milk snakes were by far the most common snake I encountered. I would find them at literally every roadcut in May, and to a lesser extent September.

Thanks all for the input! I've decided to go to MX instead. I'll visit WI again this year at first ice for some fishing...I'm truly excited!!

Great Fall to all.
