During the last twenty months, I have seen 10 hog nests, and two females nesting. And all manner of behaviors. And of course seen 7 axanthics, and two what I call, black and whites and a few hypos. A few nearly patternless(possibly just really old) and all manner of "normal" color variations. 4 basic pattern type, and many color types. I am working two counties. And several habitat types. The closest to my house is aprox 40 miles.
In my field work, I would rather see quality observations, in the field and not numbers on the road. But I do both. Concentrating in the field. I have always been a fan of tracking, and have tracked snakes since the late sixties. Wait, I tracked a gophersnake down in 1958. which may be why I like doing that. hogs are a great subject to track. Hogs can move when they want. I took a friend and we found a photographed a neonate, released it, found it again two hours later and it traveled, 3/4's of a mile. That is the exception, most only travel on the surface, less then 50 ft. before returning to the ground. So whats your story?
