My buddy and I came across a small swamp pond with gators. It took me a bit to adjust to the new hunting habitat. You take 99 steps in ankle deep water, get confident, then 1 wrong step and your up to your nuts in water. I didnt know what to look for at first. I knew what the tracks, wallows and rooting looked like after walking a bit. I found sparse old sign and some fresh the first bit I was there until i went and helped Joe drag out his yesterday. The spot he found looked like someone blew up 30 tons of thermite along the swamp floor. By the time I had an idea, it was time to pack it up and head back this morning. Once @Jackalope
found them thick towards the south, it was non stop action. I wish we could have stayed another day or 2 but I learned alot.
Appreciate the invite and hospitality @Chancegriffis
. I recommend anyone to make the trip. The campground has a great hog cleaning station and a shower house.
BTW Georgia is horrible, state troopers out the ass. We got pulled over once south of Atlanta for trailing a commercial van too close (no ticket). Then i blew a tire north of Atlanta, luckily another trooper spotted it gave us road cover. Thankfully i took a floor jack and my dewalt impact.
