Default " 2nd Drawing Pending"

I think that these come from people not purchasing their permit, whether they changed their mind or forgot or what ever. That said, knowing that Aug 11 was the deadline for purchasing the permits that were drawn for the August 1 deadlines, I eagerly logged in this morning to find great news.

I got drawn for J.D. Murphee Alligator hunt. My hunt days are Sept 12-13. My 16 year old son and I will be there. We will be a little limited on access cause my boat is an aluminum 19 footer and cannot be rolled over the levee rollers. But there are lots of areas that we can get too. This is our second hunt. Last year we got the Youth hunt at Steinhagen and while we did not get anything, we did learn a heck of a lot.

My boat has plenty of room and we would be interested in teaming up with another father son that has a smaller boat. That kind of team would have lots of advantages. We have all the archery, snares, snag line, harpoons etc that we need. Small boat for access, big boat the stack up a few 9 footers.
