Hey fella's, well I'm off the ship I spent the last 6 months on floating around the Med. Still down here in FL for another 2 weeks before I return to Norfolk. Glad to be back and looking forward to next fall already. However, I will not be hunting the waters of VA next year, and from what I have seen on the forums enjoying the Sunday hunting I think I read that passed finally. I got new orders while I was out on deployment, and I transfer in September back down to Jacksonville for at least the next 3 years. I'm stoked about it and getting back to the wife permanently. We are looking to buy a house down there and I'm already prepping for next season since I missed all of this past season.
Already picked up a new duck boat since I sold the Phowler last year. I'll be roaming the waters down here in a MoMarsh Fatboy DP with a 7hp Stumpjumper. That is the perfect boat set up for hunting 90% of FL. No more blind laws for me fella's!
I had some good times in VA, and will miss some of the guys as well, but I do plan to return to hunt here and there when I can. Since I missed all of last season, a couple buddies of mine and I are planning a trip for October for a week of waterfowl hunting in North Dakota. Looking forward to that fun.
Well fella's...see some of you in a couple weeks. Might have to organize another skeet/trap shoot soon!
