I hunted Babcock Ranch on and off Saturday-Tuesday. At the end of Tuesday their were only 5 deer and 3 hogs taken:confused:. It rained all day Saturday and flooded the roads so they closed all the trails (85% of the property) I managed 2 of the 3 hogs and could have taken atleast 10 more no joke. No deer seen from my stand but while stakning I missed a small 8 and the largest 10 point I have ever shot at. I pratice and shoot 3-D all the time but buck fever and too much brush got the best of me on the 2 missed deer but they were clean misses anyway. I will be back for muzzleloader next month. Thanks and good luck to all the Florida boys.

I hunted webb all day saturday and sunday morning. Rain was deffinetly a factor. Me and my buddy saw 11 deer on saturday only two were within 100 yards and all were on the move. I believe all were does. Saw 2 hogs early morning but it was definitely too early to shoot. Sunday, hunting alone, I saw 2 does, finally just walking. But I couldn't move fast enough without making too much noise to catch up with them and they wouldn't stop. They kept moving and I eventually lost them. Everybody I talked to, pretty much, had the same experience. They all saw deer but none were very close, and all were running. 10 deer mostly does, biggest was a 4 point (on saturday) and I am not sure what got harvested sunday.

I shot a gator last weekend. He was only 5'9" but they were all skiddish and we couldnt get clsoe. I wont be back in the deer woods till next week as I am going to watch Urban beat up on Lane this weekend.

I did good out at Webb last weekend. I missed a doe on sat,shot just over her back. And saw about 15 other deer that were out of range. On sun I had a doe down by 8:00 Am that had buck chasing her. ( I missed him due to being excited after shooting the doe) Then had three more does come and smell her and then run off. I chose not to shoot because I wanted a shot at a buck. I heard hogs off in the distance so I got down and did some stalking. And shot a boar hog. Then I sat in the rain for a few hours and right after it finished the woods came alive!!!!!!! I saw about a dozen deer and shot this 5 point. The shot was a little far back (liver) so I let him lay till the morning. And found him about 350 or so yards away, but not before the coyotes got him. It was a wet weekend to say the least but a good one.
