  • An Open Letter to the FWC Commissioners

    Commissioners, I wanted to reach out to your prior to this week’s Commission meetings in Panama City Beach. I wish I could be there. I tried. I pushed hard. I’ve been to the past 4-5 meetings, but, as a full-time waterfowl guide, this one was tough to pull off. See, I have a client flying in to hunt the day of the meetings from out of state. This gentleman has harvested 42 species of waterfowl, and only needs the Florida mottled duck to complete his slam. We’ve planned the hunt since June. If everything goes according to plan, there will be a celebration in a Central Florida Swamp Tuesday morning,…

  • #56: Southernisms

    Remember last week how we sounded all smart and stuff?  Additive harvest and predator swamping and protandric hermaphoditism and whatnot? Y’all. We asked “what are your favorite southern sayings” and boy, did y’all come through in a MAJOR way. Constipated turkeys, fence sitting turtles, sock wearing roosters, and perhaps the world’s most awkward anatomy lesson are just the beginning! Warning – may not be safe for little ears.  But we tried. Other warning – forgive us. Follow Cast and Blast Florida . . .
