Default 1st Florida Hunt

Howdy yall.

I don't Hunt. Well that changed.

I was invited to go 'Gator & Boar hunting.

Even though I missed 4 times at 3 seperate targets I still had a great time( turns out the scope on my .243 Remington 600 is horribly messed up).

I got a 110 lb sow my 3rd evening hunt with my Dad's 30'06.

I have bought an EAA Windicator .357 Magnum snubby for next year and am considering buying another or a Glock 20 in 10mm as well as a Double Barrell 12 Gauge side by side Shotgun.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Default No Pics As Of Yet

I hunted Boar at Kemper/Fellsmere area which is South of Palm Bay.

Most all the pics but 1 were on Kodak disposible cameras will this be a problem getting this to the net once developed?

The meat we got from our 2010 Hunt will feed Realtors & their familys at a feed in June.

Default Office/Visiting

My office has a scanner will this make the pics able to be transmitted via the web?

We were just visiting.

We stayed at my Uncle's ranch outside of Melborne.

He called about a week ago and he has a 5 foot 'Gator near the Bunkhouse and a 9 foot 'Gator in his back ponds.

I want but can't go back to kill them this year.

P.S. What is the best way to kill an Aligator Snapping Turtle?

Yep. Just save the pics to some kind of portable media and you can send 'em from home.

Not trying to grill you....just want to learn everything I can about shootin' pigs!

Why would you want and go do that for? You like to eat Turtle.
