Topic: early/mid March to early in southeast arkansas?

I'm from Oklahoma and I'm getting impatient waiting for spring to come! I'm aware of how incredibly difficult all these species can be to find but is it worth heading to south east AR and looking for corals, Milks, Buttermilk racers and anything and everything else  in  early/mid march or do I just need to be patient and wait for april? Not looking for locality info or anything of that sort just general advice, Thanks!

sorry I meant to say SW Arkansas

Biggest factor here is weather/temps.  If it warms up, mid-March could start producing.  I should think several consecutive days +75F and night temps not too cold will get snakes moving nicely.  I think there is an occasional racer with Buttermilk influence in SW AR, but it seems south-central near the AR/LA border has the more premier specimens.  I need to find and photograph one myself.  Good luck!

Thanks for the quick response! I think I have decided that the houston area will probably be a better bet. Is there an AR spring field trip planned yet?

Not to my knowledge.
