We did. Sorry you couldn't make it, but there's always Ocala!
The Longleaf Flatwoods Preserve is off-limits to hunting these days (though we saw evidence that--at least within the last two decades some time--it was open for hunting at some point), which is why I chose it for the first G^3 hang. The Lochloosa WMA is larger and right across the street, but no camping is allowed during hunting season.
Yeah, I'm more than a bit rusty with a compass. Still, it's good to know that I hadn't forgotten everything
