Blackwater Creek Osceola Adventure

Unread postby bigcitybowhunter » Sat Mar 24, 2018 9:42 am

Me and my buddy Jeff went on an awesome Osceola hunt. It was a Central Florida adventure. We landed at the airport and headed to the Blackwater turkey camp. The property was small by Florida standards. The brush was thick as the Amazon Jungle. We stayed in a cool hunting cabin on the property.

The hunt started out slow Saturday morning 3/17 and just got better and better. There was no shortage of wild life on the property. We saw bear, pigs and plenty of deer that morning, but few turkeys. The property owner said stick with it they are there. They will show up.

We'll he wasn't kidding. That afternoon I had an encounter with a Longbeard. The birds were quiet not very vocal. By Sunday evening and Monday morning they started to talk.

I was able to take a nice bird Monday morning and My buddy Jeff shot one Tuseday afternoon. It truly was an adventure in the Central Florida bush country.

I like to thank the property owners Mike and Linda for their help and hospitality! Super nice people true definition of Southern Hospitality! They even let us stay an extra night at the cabin when our flight was cancelled due to the latest Nor'Easter. Thank You both for an amazing Blackwater Osceola Adventure!

Bigcity,
Congrats to all of you. What a great hunt all three of you tagging out. I enjoyed the day by day of your hunt. Especially with all of the other game you seen. I can see a taxidermy bill coming your way.
