We may have been at the same place lol I found a young hog and an eastern milk at a well known scrub Oak forest in central MA Friday. I found those within about 15 minutes then spent the next two hours wandering around aimlessly and finding nothing. It was not very warm and so the racers seemed to not be out.

I have not found a very effecient way of finding the hognose snakes. It seems to be rather hit or miss. If you find a way to consistently locate them, let me know. My efforts have been limited to just looking around habitat I know they are in and hoping for the best.

It is hit or miss ,they were exterpated from Vermont a long time ago in theory but one was spotted in Vermont near the Mass border a few years ago.Hognose snakes don't seem to have a consitent habitat,sort of like copperheads ,very rare and no obvious habitat.As opposed to Timber Rattlesnakes that although low in number if you herp rocky outcrops in the southern Berkshires enough you'll hit a nest.
I don't have a good formula the the eastern Hognose really ,that is why I posted the photo because they are rare!
