Long shot lol.... don't know how many people are from the area but was interested in knowing if anybody has experience finding wild ones? Would be cool to go out a weekend and flip a few Rock's over and see what I can find

I don't know any areas in particular, but I think as long as you're out in the country a bit those rocks should offer a good chance! I did a bit of poking around in Colorado a couple years ago and was able to find scorps and other things while flipping rocks, so I think it's definitely worth the effort.

Rocky habitat in oak riparian areas with lots of flat talus and crevices- paruroctonus silvestrii and kovarikia (perhaps S donensis as well)

Mesic coastal hillsides that get fog in the morning with many rocks- Pseudouroctonus minimus, paruroctonus silvestrii and anuroctonus pococki

Dry clay chaparral hillsides that get full sun for most of the day- Anuroctonus pococki, Paravaejovis puritanus

Talus slopes in coastal hillsides and coastal scrub- serradigitus gertschi

those are the only scorpions found in orange county.
