Re: Florida pig hunting

Everglades Adventures has been around a good while. Anyone that I know of that has hunted with them had a good time. Haven’t heard of the other one before.

Re: Who took down the Memorial in 3A for Jason Goode

No, I'm not mad at FWC but why should one memorial stay and one go? I'm sure something could have been worked out not just take it down. Look down the turnpike or 95 and you see memorials from Mia to Orlando. It's history that should not be forgotten. I have had my son out to Jason's memorial to sh...

Re: Who took down the Memorial in 3A for Jason Goode

BTW, wonder if the memorial out by the holes for the fallen FWC officers are next. We brought that up as part of our argument.. I hope it gets struck by lightning and their memories are erased from the glades as well.. Wow really? Is it FWC that made us take the memorial down... No. You should dire...

Re: I hope this isn't true...

From what I understand, as of right now levitator is the only manufacturer that is under compliance. The rest do not carry this certification and it expires every year and is very expensive to get, supposedly...

Re: I hope this isn't true...

Well I sure hope other builders find way to become certified properly. Because I have first hand knowledge of this builder and it's not good. The only way they can get high HP is putting turbos on their LS platform, and their motors are junk from my opinion....

The pond that we launch at at okeetantie. Leave there head towards the river, there is a pass that cuts to the river instead of going out in the open lake. The shelter is on the point directly across the river.

Re: Crash

It happened at Kissimmee river, it was not airboat vs. airboat. It was airboat vs. duck boat. Heard he had a head injury. Passenger on airboat I heard was ejected, hope he pulls through. Prayers for speedy recovery.
