Went fishing & killed a deer; Wakulla is Great

Postby John21:6 » December 20th, 2018, 9:08 pm

I went grouper fishing in my bay boat Wednesday in hopes of finding keeper grouper before the season ends. We caught 3 small gag grouper using LYs, but the south winds and head seas would not let us get as far offshore as we had hoped. On the way back up the St. Marks River, my boat was boarded by an FWC officer. Nice guy, but he seemed to be too interested in my fishing spots.

We also saw a small barge coming up river, and it stopped at the docks at the fort. I asked the guy on the barge when he expected the ramps to be up and running. He replied, “when we’re done fixing it.”

Anyway, on the way home from St. Marks, I turned west off of Woodville Highway onto Bloxham Cutoff. Moments later, BAM! I see hooves and a deer skidding like a hockey puck down the road in front of my truck. While I’m inspecting the damage to my truck, my fishing buddy is checking on the deer. It’s lying there, but still breathing. No problem. Within minutes, someone stopped, shot the deer with a pistol and loaded it in his truck. Wakulla is great.

Never had a FWC officer inquire about my fishing spots before.

If it keeps raining, all those deer will wash out of the woods and down the river. Then your fishing and hunting spots can be one and the same. :thumbup:

It's not uncommon in Wakulla ( or most anywhere else) for a motorist to put down an animal hit by a car.

Thinking the same thing GC, why would that make Wakulla different ?

Anyways, crap response from the barge-guy, unless he just had that kind of humor lol

I took my dad fishing down to Econfina a couple of years ago. I dropped him off in Quitman, and I headed back to Moultrie. A deer jumped off a ditch bank and landed in my boat. It broke the windshield, steering wheel, depth finders, throttle lever, and various trim pieces. Total damage was over $1,300. Would have made a great State Farm commercial.

What makes Wakulla different is what makes Wakulla great.
