I've been wondering how Shannon's trip went, found this one a little late...enjoyed the pic's and looked like yall had a fine time. I remember one of my earliest trips to Florida when I was 5 or 6 years old and we went to Sanna Bell and Captiva Island's...around the mid 60's. I don't remember much other then some cabins, fishing boats, crabs, and lots of sea shells...

Had an Aunt that lived in Melbourne, Fl., she used to bring us the sweetest oranges ripened off the tree!  :)

 Dang, Roger, I should have gone with you. That sounds like some good eating and the wind didn't help us at all. And then, it started raining at 7 this morning and the wind was still blowing.
   But we didn't get skunked. The good Ol' Huntin' Jeep scored another hog on the way in. A big pack tried to shoot across the road, and I swear, she's like that Volkswagon Herbie. I felt the gas pedal hit the floor, like it had a mind of it's own. Looked in the mirror and had one down and ended up catching another one alive that was a little rattled. So far the Jeep has got 1 Tom Turkey, 3 hogs, and 6 Armadillos.
  I also shot a couple of more hogs and my buddy Chris shot a turkey and a Bobcat that jumped on the turkey. He said that was exciting. He watched the Bobcat sneaking on the turkey, and when he shot the bird the cat attacked the turkey and tried to run off with it. All I saw was hens and I'm not going to elaborate on the gobbling hen that somebody bagged. ::)

That looks like that cat I slipped up on last weekend. Slim and long legged.  Looks like a nice gobbler too.  What kind of hooks was he packin?
 Six 6 armadillos with that jeep. ::)  You must have gotten better at hit'n 'em ;D
  I watched 12 jakes run a bobcat off yesterday morning. They went running at him purring and clucking real aggressively. He stood his ground for a few seconds and then turned and ran away. ???
  The wind was blowing about 25mph and it was raining here this morning too.  I thought about sleeping in, but figured I'd sleep when the seasons over.  Glad I went. I managed to kill this one just after fly down and was back home before I had time to get good and wet. 8)

 Congratulations! Chris shot that bird behind the camp near that dried pond you saw the birds in, you know, the bent shotgun. ;). It was an early hatch Jake. Nubs for spurs and a 5.5" beard.

  Brian, we are actually Turkey hunting. The hogs are just an opportunity target.
