I know exactly what you are talking about, and there's quite a bit of that here in rural Ohio, it's a lifestyle here for many! Those boys from the South that like their farms and snow come up here...I know when I was in Atlanta there was some of it left in the Macon area...and I can't believe I'm saying this, but from what I've been reading, there's a lot of Good Ole Boy in Alaska!

I knew quite a few people who did it when I worked in warehouses over the years. It was pretty disgusting, especially when they would just spit the juice on the floor.

Sounds a bit like hillbilly/Appalachian culture. I'd probably check the outskirts of towns like Roanoke, VA, Charleston, WV, Chattanooga, TN, Knoxville, TN, Greenville, SC, and Huntsville, AL. And pretty much any small town in the region.

Not really. It sounds more coastal plain/low-country than anything.

My dad in WV chewed tobacco, kept a cup by him all the time. He used the term "ol boy" a lot. He told me once that he had met this ol boy who told him that it was his grandfather that had inducted him into the klan. The induction had to have taken place sometime in the mid-30's. I have a nice oval portrait of my great-grandfather in the living room. His wife Rachel once fired a shotgun at a trick-or-treater. The kid was running around the house banging on her windows. My dad met that kid years later and he told him the story.

Haven't noticed them. We have a lot of blue-collar men, but they're more like the Southern version of men in the Northeast who like to hangout at pubs and watch sports, as opposed to doing activities such as hunting & fishing like "country boys." It's a very common type around here.

Hazard County (incidentally they weren't real Southerners).

Rural areas, small towns and cities, and maybe a few large cities like Jacksonville.

Not from my perspective. I was born and raised in the Southern coastal plains area, and working in Appalachia I saw more pick-up trucks, camouflage, and Confederate flags than I ever did growing up.
