With the 2012-2013 hunting and fishing season winding down I reflected on the wonderful year we enjoyed. Snapper fishing was great even though the season was too short and the limit too low. One of many nice snapper we caught. We did a little crabbing at a dam on Marsh Island. Boiled crabs are so good to eat. My lovely wife enjoying the day. My hunting season starts in September with alligators. We had a good year, made a little money, and caught some pretty good alligators. Our average length was the best in years. Eleven and a half foot long gator. Next we began to get ready for dear season. I built a new deer stand and with the help of friends installed it. Building the stand in my home workshop, that is my airboat in the background. Bringing the stand to the lease Installed in the marsh. Next was teal season. I was able to hunt Max even though he was only five months old. Max, Raven, and Speck working together. Raven is the dam to Max and Speck. Our deer season is very early. A buddy killed a nice 7 point in the new stand and my wife shot a doe for some meat. We enjoyed a good duck season even though it was hit and miss. We were in Africa for most of the first split but enjoyed hunting the second split of the season.
