Re: North Florida Shooters
We're just wrapping up another season in Apalachicola National Forest today... Weather has been crappy and the deer herd seems to be way down but the dogs don't seem to mind and the hunters, although frustrated, seemed to enjoy it....
Is there life after deer dog hunting season? Right now I don't know but will miss hearing the hounds as they chase deer through the piney woods and the chatter on the radio and the good times around the campfires....
The best part is we'll do it again next year and the year after and as long as they let us do it... It's a tradition that is deeply ingrained in the deep south and a way of life for many of us from mid December to the end of January every year.... ;)
Now I gotta get out tracking for the last day of dog hunting on public land for the year for Zone D.... ;)
If it's long it can't be wrong... LDHunter (Long Distance Hunter) from the Piney Woods of NW Florida. I hunt clearcuts for scrawny whitetails... ;)
