Thanks man. I generally don't see much in the way of headgear until the end of the month, but I have seen some earlier. Late december the numbers start blowing up with the pre-rut churning up.

1 hog killed out of 471 side today. On a side note there really are live bucks in the swamp. Just a bit after noon seen him cruise thru pretty quick, only stopping for a second. Just long enough to see he was wearing a small crown. That will keep my hopes up, still keeping fingers crossed.

Last Season didnt see a thing until the end of December, then bang bang every weekend until season closed. Meanwhile I already shot 4 in Ocala. Green swamp is just one of those places.

Default GPS/Cell/Meat Processed?

Planning my first trip to GS next week. I donít live that far (Clermont) but was wondering how effective the cell service is in that area. Considering buying the entry level Garmin just to make sure I donít get turned around in the woods. It doesnít have maps but gives you directions to truck / stand.
Also- if by some miracle Iím successful and take a hog or deer, is there anywhere locally to get the animal cleaned / processed? Thanks in advance.

Haven't been on the site for a week but I was out there weds - fri. Was back out there today at some point over the weekend a 10pt 152# buck was checked in on the Rockridge side. Numbers were 1 deer, 3 hogs, 10 squirrels. I've never seen so many pigs in GS. Lost count at 26 on thursday evening last week.

Yep seems like Xmas or just before is the magical turning point. Hopefully that holds true again this year.

HogHunter I have Metro/ T Mobile and i get a bar here and there just long enough to let the wife know to not send the forces out looking for me. As for a handheld GPS it would be a great investment. Most are capable of keeping your trail log tracks as long as it is on. So while walking to where you will be hunting leave it on. That way when it's time to go, you just follow your saved track back out. Also never solely rely on an electronic device for navigation. Nothing will ever beat a compass common sense. Study your choice of topo maps and plan to stick to one area, becoming more familiar of it on each outing. Believe me when i say it's EASY to get turned around in the swamp. By the way Weicht's Custom Slaughter Inc in zephyrhills is a good place. Good luck, be safe and make it thunder! Report back.
