Only got one. It’s a Neil Cost. If I knew what it was worth, I’d consider selling it.

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

Has anybody mentioned brain-eating amoebas? Well...they’re there too. According to WebMD, you should be just fine if you avoid “mud puddles” and “soil.” That shouldn’t be difficult.

Then there’s the dreaded rat lung worm that’s spreading throughout the state and causing meningitis. Google it for yourself and decide.

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

The numbers for “Green Swamp West” don’t look so bad. I’m guessing it’s a smaller and/or less heavily hunted area. But it may require a limited entry permit. Worth exploring.

Re: Green Swamp WMA in Florida

The Green Swamp sounds like a tough place to kill a gobbler and the numbers don't lie. If I read the 2018 harvest report correctly there were 44 turkeys killed. The swamp consists of 50,000 acres. Again I could be wrong but those are the numbers I saw. I couldn't tell how many hunters there were th...

Natural voice caller at that. Check out Netflix or YouTube’s archive of the movie “Vernon, Florida” (1981)....

Unless y’all are neighbors, you’ll have to incur shipping costs. Any halfway reputable gunsmith can do it well and in minutes. Likely well under $40/hole.

Obviously there are some small tracts that just “hold” a lotta turkeys. Maybe year after year. Great if that’s your place. However, for every oasis there’s at least one desert. On any sizable scale in your part of the world (where roost trees are well distributed), best I’ve heard of is a sustained ...

The only thing I’ve ever been able to tell about age from the beards or spurs of any turkey I’ve killed is he’s as old as he’s gonna get. :scratch:
