people don't typically share that kind of info around here.
People seem to be VERY secretive about their breeding techniques. Here's some decent info, if a bit condescending:http://www.riobravoreptiles.com/care_breedingboas.htm
Last year I didn't use "cooling". The only seasonality I used was going from 13 hours of light, down to 11 hours of light. The male courted imediately, and heavily for 4 months, but the female didn't take. I also fed them throughout.
This year, I quit feeding, went from 13 hours of light, down to 11 hours of light, and am dropping the ambient temps down to 75f at night. The pair have been together for 3 weeks. The male has shown absolutely no interest in doin anything but hiding. Make of that what you will.

Things always get cloudy, just before transformation.
