My Coast Guard contact told me they couldn't get anywhere near him and had to send the copter in. I know of another DHC member who was also out there and had a heck of a time - said he pushed his boat a mile to get to the ICW and that was after waiting til 8:30PM, then ran out of water near the ramp and had to wait some more before meeting a whole squad of LE and Rescue units looking for Hunter #1. I was working and when I drove home at 5 could not believe how low the bay was!!!
Been there - Done That!!! No Fun

I almost got stranded a few years brant hunting near the pilings for the old railroad trestle that used to cross the bay to Brigantine. The tide just flew out before I realized it. It was my first time hunting that spot and I wasn't familiar with the local conditions. Always learning!
