RE: Avon Park Air Force Range
Wow, the price has gone through the roof in the past ten years, from what I remember, cant remember the number, but when you go in not far past the camp-grounds make the first right turn, then the next left, stay on that road about 1/4 mile, that area "was" planted pine and some thick pallametos, I shot most of my deer in that area. I stopped hunting there in 97 due to the "CITY SLICKERS" hunting there. I was sitting in my stand one morning watching the turkeys running around and some guy and his kid come ditty-bopping through the woods with some stylish mirror sunglasses on, after severale attemps to signal them, they got close enough to hear the turkeys and got into the ready mode "RAMBO STYLE", wasnt even turkey season, I got nervous enough to stand up and yell at them. Ill be danged if they didnt come up to the base of my tree and start a conversation. That and a few other ordeals was enough for me, now I mainly hunt 85 acres all by my lonesome up here in N E Georgia.
