Yeah, I agree about the difficulty. Still, the great outdoors should be there for everyone, including the hunters. I
sure wouldn't want to sit in a blind in ninety-degree heat with a hundred percent humidity waiting for game, and it wouldn't be fair to expect that of others, either, I feel.
But, on the other hand, it's nice to have places to go where you don't have to wear blaze orange all the time to avoid being filled with small pieces of metal.
On the compass, yes. According to this site
, Gainesville's is 5 degrees, nineteen minutes. That increases by about a tenth of a degree (or six minutes) per year. So, check how old your maps are...
Cool site on the declination. Just got done playing around with it. Thanks!
I hear ya about the hunting, got no problem sharing the woods. I just like to hear about or find places to go where I don't have to be worrying about flying lead and I am not spoiling the hunters venture.I believe in the mutual respect. Always good to check the FWC site to see what areas are open or closed to hunting to be on the safe side.
