A birthday hog hunt to remember

To many hog hunting is much more than a pass-time; it's a way of life. Serious hog hunting require skill, hard work, a great deal of time, and, most of all hogs. Hunting on a limited budget? No problem! With nearly 6 million acres Florida has one of the largest wildlife management area (WMA) systems in the country. Problem is pressure tends to be heavy, and restrictions are many.After hunting Aucilla WMA for ten years I wanted more.My first hunting club was Crystal River's Southwood. Southwood was 6,000 acres and cross-fenced. It was there that I first used electric corn feeders. Many game trails followed fence lines; that's where I placed my feeders. The hunting was fantastic.Decided I wanted more hunting area and a bigger camp. After two years it was off to much larger Buck & Boar Hunting Club. B&B covered 16,000 acres in the middle of a swamp. It was Hog Heaven. My wife and I were members for 20 years. Shortly after our twentieth year cancer claimed her. Part of me went with her. The thought of hunting alone was devastating.After a few years I once again wanted to 'pull that trigger.'But how! Age was catching up with me. I could no loner do it on my own.At 19.06% Florida has the largest percent of senior citizens in the entire country; many still love to hunt. But how?Perry Florida's Two Guys & A Hog Outfitter offers hunting for the young as well as the aging population.Let's give it a try!Both Aucilla WMA and Buck & Boar were just outside of Perry, Florida. Perry's 'old-Florida' atmosphere had fascinated us for years:'Let's give it a try' was over five years ago. Have been hunting there ever since. The best part... We have all the fun; someone else does all the work:Francisco, my guide for over 5 years, is simply the best of the best. No better place to celebrate...No better way to celebrate than a picture of me and my trophy on the bulletin board:Think it's going to be easy? Think again!Those hogs are...The BIG boys are staying in thick cover:Finally the smaller meat hogs begin to appear:The older, larger, hogs remain  on:That fence-line stretches for hundreds of yards. Late in the evening the BIG boys are following the fence leading to the feeder:Those two look good. Only a few minutes of day-light left:With a mighty roar, and the kick of a mule, I unleash the awesome power of that 405 gr. GO BIG:My birthday trophy takes off like a bullet. It was all but dark. My shot was a little off. Francisco tracks him down over 200 yards away.Thank you sir:Let being 78 and 1/2 crippled stop me, and hose like me, from hunting... NO WAY!Two Guys & A Hog, let's do a Christmas hunt. Check out the birthday hog hunt video.

Wow..... the gymrats back in town!.... boy do I feel old..... seems I remember many of your younger days and posts here.... your last days before heading off to college....great to see your doing well and still catching fish on the olístompin grounds!  Thanks for the update and post. 

Thank you. I learned a ton from this board back in my teens. Would've loved to have stayed around longer, but between living in New Hampshire for two years and now Florida for over three, I haven't been a resident of the Garden State since 2014. Lots of fun times on here and I can't believe how long ago that was. I joined here in 2007 when I was 15 years old and I'm 28 now. Time flies.

Gambler Striper Trips

The Gambler will be fishing for Striped bass tomorrow and Friday. We had originally scheduled Friday and the weekend for offshore fishing but changed to stripers due to unfavourable weather conditions offshore.  But the inshore weather looks good and we left the bass biting a few days ago.  Can't wait to take some guys out jigging tomorrow and Friday.  We will try weekend for striped  bass also, but need to watch the weather.

Also,  we still have room aboard for upcoming Offshore Sea Bass trips.

Fishing with Captain Bryon Holland
Last week we took a look at, 'Fishing with Captain Garett Hubbard.'
The catch was excellent:


Captain Bryon Holland also runs the overnight trips to the far off Florida Middle Grounds and Vicinity.
Captain Bryon, like Captain Garett, is one of the best of the best. Captain Holland has been fishing our Gulf of Mexico waters for decades:

Guys & Girls once again it's:


On Tuesday, and again on Friday, Captain Bryon Holland leads the charge.
Let's go!

Captain... Thanks!

Think the tricky, hard to catch, Mangrove Snapper is for the guys only? Think again!

That snapper is HUGE!

Talk about HUGE!









Looking good, really good!

Always be careful out there. No fish is worth a human life. This came up quick:


This is Florida. Often the terrible weather, hopefully, is over quickly and we can get back to business:
Now that's more like it:

Fishing with good friends... It just does not get any better than that:

Love to catch Gag Grouper? Now is the time:

Always an honor having angleretts on the Florida Fisherman ll:

Variety is what the Florida Middle Grounds is all about:

Nice Red Grouper:


The Gags are on-going:

Beautiful:

Captain, this is turning into a major catch:




It's getting late:


Back at the dock:

Look at those BIG bills:



Check out the action packed video (12/6/19)

Just got back from my birthday hunt. What a hunt it was:

That brute acted like he did not think too much of the idea of being shot. Little did he know who he was up against.
Complete story to follow.
