Scorpion with babies
Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake


While out dove hunting the other day, I was quickly reminded of why I invested in a pair of snake-proof boots. This big Eastern diamondback rattlesnake looked to be about 5 feet in length and was shaking his tail of 17 rattles and a button. When I walked toward him to take his picture, he popped up into his ready-to-fight stance with his rattles already shaking.

I took a dozen pictures from different angles. And all the while, without dropping down, his piercing glare and upper body followed my every move as I circled around him. The constant reminder of impending danger reverberated from the never ending shaking of the rattles at the end of the snake's coiled tail.

I couldn't help but to feel sorry for any critters unfortunate enough to come within striking distance of the snake's venomous fangs. They would not have a chance to get away from this frightening predator who is easily camouflaged in the woods.

Scorpion with babies
Florida scorpion with babies


Florida Scorpions - hunters will find them just about everywhere.

While working at the hunt camp a few days ago, I came across a scorpion. Being the curious sort of fellow that I am, I put the scorpion in a glass jar so I could observe her behavior. To my surprise, a few days later, she birthed the babies that are shown in this photo. The gestation period for Florida scorpions is from several months up to a year. The mother scorpion carries her babies on her back until their first molt (shedding of their skin).

Even though scorpions are attracted to dark and humid areas and are nocturnal, they do move around during the daylight hours. I have found them on my burn barrel, porch area, wood shack, and deer cleaning area during both the day and nighttime.

Last year, I was bitten in the palm of my hand by a scorpion. Thankfully, their sting is nonlethal. However, I did experience a sharp pain and a little numbness and redness for a while. The best first-aid treatment for a scorpion sting is cleaning with soap and water and then applying wrapped ice.

Proposed Changes: Antler-Point Regulations

proposed changes to hunting in Florida Zone D


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is proposing changes in Florida Zone D, in northwest Florida, regarding antler-point regulations for the 2014-2015 hunting season. The proposed changes would require that antlered deer have at least one antler with two or more antler points on one side to be eligible for harvest. You can read more about this proposal at the following link to FWC's website: FWC News Release; Proposed Antler-point Regulations for 2014-2015

Pregnant Doe
Pregnant Doe


Here is a photo of a pregnant mama doe that we have been watching over the summer who comes into our hunt camp often. She has been grazing on grass that I have planted around the campsite. It looks like she will be having twins this year. This doe is showing multiple teats full of milk, but you can't see them in this photo. You can, however, see the bulge in her tummy. She should be dropping her fawns within a week or so, which means we won't see her for a while because she'll keep them hidden from us for, probably, at least a month.

Super Moon of June 23, 2013

Super Moon


The evening of June 23, 2013, I went in search of the "super moon" in the Apalachicola National Forest as the sun was setting. Prior to the moon rising, I saw this cloud formation resembling a lady raising her hand to her forehead searching the sky, also. Maybe she was looking for the super moon, too. This full moon is not only the closest and largest full moon of the year. It also presents the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. The moon will not be so close again until August, 2014.

Buck in Velvet


During the hot and humid Florida summers, the outdoorsman's thoughts and activities, usually, turn to fishing. But while we're out hooking those tasty bream in our favorite lake or river, the little white-tail bucks are growing their antlers. After returning from my favorite fishing hole, I spotted this baby buck passing through the backyard of the hunt/fish camp today. Since I've been watching him from birth, I know that he is ten months old. Come hunting season this fall, if this under-sized buck can stay away from the itchy trigger fingers of other hunters on the nearby public land, he will be welcome to pass through my backyard over the next few years anytime he chooses!

Alligator Snapping Turtle


This alligator snapping turtle was making his way across a lonely stretch of forest road when I snapped his photo. Sometimes humans think the grass is always greener on the other side. I suppose in turtle thinking, the swamp is always wetter on the other side; which could explain why this big fellow was taking a stroll down the ole dirt road. These turtles are the largest freshwater turtle in the world; and make their homes in the wetlands and rivers of the southeastern United States. They can grow to an average weight of 150 to 180 pounds and live to be an average of 80 to 120 years of age. Alligator snapping turtles are fun to look at, but you might want to keep your distance. They are known to have a quick and forceful bite that could quickly sever a human finger.

While you are out in the woods hunting or scouting for your favorite game animal, remember that an alert and aware hunter or huntress can always find something interesting to see!

Pitcher Plant Bloom
Pitcher Plant Bloom (Sarracenia)


Pitcher plants are blooming in the forests of Florida. The bright-yellow blooms of the Sarracenia (pitcher plant) are fairly easy to spot. These carnivorous plants can be found around wet and swampy areas throughout Florida, which boasts more species of carnivorous plants than any other state in the United States. So if you're out turkey hunting this spring, you might want to hunt for these yellow beauties, too. They are just darn right pleasant to look at.
