I have not seen a eastern rattler in many years. I do see a lot of canebrakes, copperheads, water moccasins, and quite a few other non poisonous snakes on an almost daily basis. We see at least 10 to 15 snakes a day on the Edisto where we have a gettaway. I like the one I see, and not so much the one I don't see.
I know a couple of months ago (May) that the State had been petitioned
again by the SCDNR on behalf of a lot ecological research centers, and
the Savanna River Facility to list EDBs as a protected Species. They said
that the rodent population in the low country had risen drastically the past several
years, and they are extremely concerned that it is a result of the decline
in the EDB population in the low country. There are some capture and
tagging studies being done extensively now, and the State is monitoring
the situation, but as of May, the State had not stepped in with a State
Endangered order or listed EDBs as a protected species. Marion County
is the one that I know about that has basically taken steps to stop them
being killed or transported out of the county and passed laws to protect
them from being killed or taken there. .... Beaufort may well have done
the same thing to protect them within the boarders of their city / county
until the State steps in a declares them an endangered species in SC
