I've been drawn for JD Murphree 2 out of the last 3 years but you never know. I was really looking forward to the hunt, my wife was on the application with me so she was really bummed. May never draw it again. Who knows.

We drew gator at JD Murph too. We drew 2 years ago but my brother wasn't able to go, but would've been able to this time. Bummer.
