I'm more of a kingsnake guy, I just learned from occasionally reading the bull/pine/gopher forum. My understanding is that this cross has not been done alot, rather one person did it because he only had one Louisiana Pine and wanted to pass the offspring off as pure Louisiana Pines so as to get more money out of the babies. Normal bullsnakes sell for about $50 each, more or less, depending on color, size, temperment, etc. but pure Louisiana Pines sell for like $400 each.
So supposedly this one guy did the cross and sold several babies to other people as pure Louisiana's and these other people in turn bred them and unkowingly sold the babies to more people. Eventually somebody discovered the truth and now any Louisiana of unkown origin is not trusted. I guess there is only one or two bloodlines that are accepted as pure and if you can't trace your animals back to those then they are pretty much considered defacto crosses.
