Gone Hunting!

There a couple of pre-written posts for you, but no spur of the moment ones until late tonight (and maybe not 'till Wednesday!) because I am going out to chase some wily whitetails.

"Most likely nearly all of Florida's Gulf coast once appeared like that,
before modern developers diked, ditched, drained and filled ….."

-Archaeologist Jerry Milanich

I'll be hunting Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area (Informative PDF) on the west coast of Florida in Hernando County.

I'm told the hunting is hard, but I met a young fellow named Justin that took pity on me and was kind enough to sit down with your ever faithful writer and go over the map. I told him I was primarily interested in getting a doe for the freezer, and he suggested two spots, and then recommended that I carefully walk the dirt access roads during the day. He says he has seen plenty of hog on the roads during the late morning and early afternoon. Sounds counterintuitive I know, but he was a sincere young fellow, and I have no reason to doubt his observations.

I am looking forward to taking my new SiegeWork Creations American Long Bow
with me on this hunt. I haven't received the wooden arrows yet, but I have some aluminum Eastons that will serve well for the time being. I will also be using the Muzzy Phantom MX broadheads that I reviewed on September 10th.

I'm looking forward to this long anticipated and well deserved hunting foray. And even if nothing comes my way, I'll consider it a successful trip!

Wish me luck!
