Not much to report on from my most recent hunt. I got up before light and drove back out to Devil’s Hammock WMA to where I had seen the group of hogs the week before. I found where they’re bedding and also found a few wallows, but unfortunately could find no hogs. Before leaving, I drove to a different area and hiked down a trail while looking for squirrels. I ran into a sign that said “Champion Tree”. Just a sign. No spectacular trees anywhere in sight.
But upon closer inspection, I could make out something large about 60 yards into the woods. And there it was, the ‘Champion Tree’. I had actually read about it prior to going out there, but had never seen it. It’s the 2nd largest Live Oak in the state of Florida. And boy…Is it big.
