 AHH! We did have fun, Pat. There was a lot of fun conversation every night on the screened in porch sipping a few while dinner was cooking. We were so close to Okeechobee , that we had a nice sea breeze blowing like you were at the beach.

 Keenan, I was tired, had to drag that one a ways and it was hot. Roger, we are on the DeSoto, Highlands County line, just up the road from Fisheating Creek on SR 70.

Looks like a great time ya'll ;D. I've only been to Florida once and was playing tourist the whole time - didn't have time to have fun :'(.
When you come upon a track or trail you do not know, follow it to the point of knowing.

Looks like a great time. Ive been to Florida a few times and the natural areas there are cool. Very different from up north. Tourism is out of hand there and Ive heard some locals like it better in the summer when us northerners leave because we cant take the heat ;D. Florida must have been a really great place back in the day. Looks like you guys know all the good spots. I really wanna hunt pigs there someday.

Jesse, no offence, but we really do like it when all ya'll go home. The PARKS CLOSED for the SUMMER. ;D This was a great place to live till Walt had his Dream. Now it's turned into a nightmare. Where we are hunting is one of the few places that is still old Florida and it is also where they want to put a new connecting highway in to go north and join the Interstate near Disney :(. If they do, it will not be long before it is developed, too.

No offense taken. I wouldn't want it to happen in my area.This recession might keep a few of us home :) I know the highway that connects marco island to miami wrecked a lot of the wildlife by draining the swamps. I learned that while on a tourist  airboat ride ;D.  Should have seen me. Wide brim hat, camera around my neck, sun burnt face, and pointing at everything that moved. You would have no trouble telling I wasn't from around there. :D. I spent a few days just driving around on the gravel roads through the everglades and once the locals saw I had WI plates they would pull their truck in front of me and kick up dust for miles ;D. Cant blame them I guess.

 You should have seen all the artifacts that were found on Marco Island.

I'd be there in a heartbeat.  But my wife says I've done enough traveling this year ??? >:(
  I just got permission to hunt a new place for points the other day. It's raining now, so it should be good point hunting this weekend 8)
 Oh BTW, I told you I would bring rain, :P
Be thankfull for all you have, because no matter how bad you think it is...it can always be worse.
