    well I could have helped us out on that but Daytona Red Eye backed out of going bear handgun Hunting with me when he had the banged up foot and had the cast on it.
    I had him all rigged up with Bauer 25 acp , you know just in case he could push that scooter real fast!
    anyway here is my last hunting buddy.

    When people think for Florida they tend to think nuisance "Gators", "Sharks" or here lately "20 ft. Pythons".

    However we have an abundance of Black Bears too.

    That late night noise rattling your garbage cans may just as well be a Black Bear as a stray dog...

    Admit it, you just did it so you could run the lights, sirens and get away with speeding.

    If you're in his neck o' the woods and need backup on a hunt - not so much.
