    I think a gentleman named Mike Elfing has been working diligently on expanding opportunity there recently - possibly check a fb page titled "Big Cypress Sportsmens Alliance " and pm him for verification - usually responds promptly.

    Speaking about Picayune my family hunted that area back in the 60s. We leased it from Shell Oil. It is was tough hunting walking and hounds. But we killed over 20 bucks every year. I was only a child but the memories are forever in me. Hopefully they will never leave.

    When I found out they were going to make the blocks it was the saddest day of my life.

    We left the area and started hunting in Levy county what a difference. I remember how impressed the locals were on how our dogs worked. Imagine these dogs were raised and hunted in the Glades all of their lives. When they got to dry land they ran like if they were on jet fuel.
