For Memorial Day I went out with a big group of people and spent the day hunting wild hogs in Okeechobee. We had a GREAT time. It was my first time hunting anything and it went quite well I thought.
The location is Little Lake Lodge in Okeechobee, FL.

try at least once. Plus, the meat is VERY tasty!!! (We had ribs for
dinner last night)
