Fishing and Guns in Florida – The Daily Gazette

This is something I have wanted for a while, the 20 gauge Savage Stevens 320 Security.

Smiling, my wife asked, “Why? ”

Because it’s good company, and I like the pistol grip when one of those pheasants comes up, it gives me a really good grip on the shoulder.

And the price is right. Only $ 189.

It’ll be taken to Florida for a turkey, and I’ve already contacted who I think is the best tour guide ever – Bill Henry from Florida. I always have a bird with him.

Also in Florida, it will be a 6am visit to a special dock on the Intercoastal Waterway where I receive over 200 fish each year. As for the sea bass, I do a little in several ponds.

For those emails I have so far asked “what about the alligators?” They are just too expensive. The only one I had was two years ago with a fishing rod in a pond, and it took me almost an hour to get it to shore. I took a picture and then let it go, but I enjoyed the crowd watching.


Want to take a walk in the Adirondacks? Recently, the State Department of Environmental Conservation announced six “first day” hikes scheduled for Jan. 1 in DEC Region 5, which includes the Central and Eastern Adirondacks.

The hikes, announced by Governor Kathy Hochul earlier this month, are family-friendly and range from 1.5 to 5 miles round-trip, with help from staff and partners in DEC Region 5.

According to the DEC, hikers should be prepared for the elements with warm clothing, water, snacks, sunglasses, hats, gloves and waterproof shoes.

Each participant will receive a pair of Adventure NY brand gloves and a New York State Parks bandana. To register, send an email [email protected].

Anglers interested in trying ice fishing for the first time should mark the weekend of February 19-20 on their calendar. The DEC has designated this weekend as a free fishing weekend, which means the requirement for a fishing license is lifted.

Free Fishing Weekends are a great opportunity to try their hand at fishing for the first time and for experienced anglers to introduce the sport to their friends. You can download the chapter on ice fishing from DEC’s “I Fish NY Beginners Guide to Freshwater Fishing”. DEC also has an ice fishing website that lists the waters open to ice fishing.
