Re: Area 1 - Arthur R. Marshall NWR - Potential Hunting etc.

For gator hunting you are not running in marsh. You go in off LOX road and use the south ramps to Area 1 you only hunt canal around area on south and some west side. You can only go short way into marsh in some open areas. No airboats, only boats.

Re: Bob Stossel Documentary Link To Vimeo Video

It was a true honor to know him. We were board members on the Airboat and Halftrack club in Palm Beach County and had board meetings at my house. He would come early and give me pointers on my airboat and buggy that I was building at the time. Had a few meetings at his shop also.
