a little over a month ago, me and a buddy were on our way back from a fishing trip on Escambia. On our way back home from Smith's launch off of 9 mile road I see what I think is an archery target. We get closer and to my suprise it's a shooter buck in velvet.(right across the street from the old Murphys lounge). We circle back around several times and notice two of them just grazing around. I was able to snap a couple of pictures, but as you can imagine they are not that good from a moving truck. I know they are coming up from UWF but wow! what an odd place to see them. I haven seen plenty of them just as you cross the river on 90 going towards Pace coming out of the swamp. So next time your driving 9 mile road just look. You never know what your going to see.

P.S. I will try to post the picture

Last year I was driving home when something caught my eye. I turned around and the little church that sits next to the bingo place had a bachelor group of 5 bucks in velvet standing in the yard feeding. The biggest was a very respectable 8 point. I tried to sneak around through the bingo parking low to get a video of them but as soon as they saw me they were gone. Despite being UWF deer and around people all the time they are definitely not "pets". I would love to be able to hunt back there.

There's actually alot of good deer around there, cause there's alot of land between Gulf Power and UWF property that you cant hunt....
