Turkey in a Tree

During a recent trip to the woods with my 6-year-old grandson to get some crawfish, we were fortunate enough to see this turkey roosting in a nearby pine tree. At first glance, it appeared to be a typical buzzard. Just about everyone has seen big-black buzzards that are the garbagemen of the woods and roads that keep areas clean from dead critters and road kill.

But this, however, was a rare treat to see a wild turkey nearby. Turkeys roost in trees as a safety measure to distance themselves from predators on the ground, like coyotes, foxes, and cougars, just to name a few.

It did my heart good to know that these woods, where I hunt, are filling up with wild turykey. I'm looking forward to meeting up with this fellow, or one of his brothers, come hunting season.

Alligator On a Log

Anyone who lives in Florida or has visited our State has, probably, seen an alligator. They can be found almost anywhere in our many lakes, rivers, and wetlands. Alligators like to eat just about anything they can get a-hold of. Their natural diet includes snakes, fish, amphibians, turtles, insects, birds, and small mammals that live wherever the alligators are. As many a hunter can attest to, they also have been known to eat hunting dogs and small or injured deer.

Even though many people consider them a danger and a nuisance, alligators are federally protected. However, Florida does have a management program that allows alligators to be legally taken by people with the proper licenses
and permits.

Jack Langston's Boat Ramp, Wakulla County, Florida

Now that hunting season is over, you might want to get out and enjoy some of the many rivers and lakes in Florida. Florida offers everything from huge lakes and rivers, like Lake Okeechobee and the Apalachicola River, to small ponds and creeks with no names.

There are many boat ramps throughout, Florida, for access to these rivers and lakes. Many of them are free of charge, but some have a launching fee. You may even find a few that operate on the "honor system." Jack Langston's Boat Ramp, in Wakulla County, Florida, is one such place where you put your launching fee in the mailbox provided on the boat ramp.

While you're out there doing a little fishing and boat riding; it, also, provides a great opportunity to do some scouting for your next hunting trip in the fall. Keep your eyes open towards the banks of the rivers and lakes for the wildlife. You might not readily see them, but be assured, they are out there and may be looking back at you!
