Release Date 1/29/2022

 I was Hunting in the Lower Suwanee national wildlife refuge.

We didnt catch any hogs, but some other hunters in the area who arrived earlier did get some.

It was a cold and windy day on the Saturday. Things warmed-up and the wind died off on Sunday.

I found the old hog skull that we buried here a number of years ago. It looks very scary and weird because it became infused with roots from trees. After about 10 minutes under the hose I was able to get it back to where i could tell what it was.

On the second day some other hunters sabotaged the airboat changing the spark plug wires around and it was looking a little dicey trying to go home in the dark. The boat kept backfiring flames out of the exhaust pipe. We figured it out and corrected it with no damage done, but WTF its public land no need to trash somebody's boat.

Truth: Old memories get confused.

First Bottle of the New Year

I have been paddling a bit, but was too lazy to post all of them here. 

I went out to Durney Key to test out my Flat Earth Kayak Sail. I finally got the rigging right and the sail worked pretty well. Im looking forward to trying it in a heavier wind. It was only about 5 to 10 knots. I definitely pushes the boat in this wind. If I dont paddle at all its about 2 knots if I paddle as well it really moved. 

The sail seemed to allow sailing at 45 degrees maybe a bit more on either side of the wind. And if the day was right it would make a huge difference the amount of distance and effort. 

We built some rat traps to try and reduce the rat infestation of the island, but the rats outsmarted us and took almost all the bait without catching any of them. I will upload the game camera footage if I get some good shots.

Truth: Rats are smart
