In the 70's there used ti be a place called the Okeeteee Swamp in eastern South Carolina in Jasper County near Hardeville. People would show up in the spring and look for Scarlet Kingsnakes, Eastern Kings, Canebrakes, Eastern Diamondbacks, Mole Kings and the like. I caught several beautiful Scarlet Kings barking and I always made sure to replace the bark They finally shut that down in the late 70's, early 80's as too many people were showing up as professional collectors and taking everything but the turtles and Alligators, and when they went into an area and barked it, they never replaced the bark. As usual, humans always destroy whatever they touch because of greed and stupidity.
