    A good camera,need to get some pictures. Deer hunters any heat cameras available for dark.

    How much is a good cheap night light,will have to test the distants I get on my camcorder.

    Thinking out loud making my list, can't forget that spider...can't wear wet boots. O'h use my

    foot for Boa bait.They make cameras that will pick up an insect moving,too many insects in the

    brush, won't work....thinking......more

    Just goto Timberland and get some knee high snake proof boots. If your gonna go into the water past knees look for Snakeproof waders at Bill Jacksons, Bass Pro Shops, Cabella's, etc...and a .380 or 9mm short or may be even a 4-10 if your not a gun guy. If your looking for something all purpose check out the Governor or Judge by Taurus in Miami. It fires .45ACP .45 and 4-10 in one pistol.

    Oh no please do not go out hunting like some military wannabe. Like all those people that do this kind of dressing. You will only look ridiculous

    This isn't normal hunting. Road signs where he's going read "IF YOUR CAR BREAKS DOWN DO NOT ATTEPT TO GET OUT OF YOUR VEHICLE! STAY INSIDE AND WAIT FOR HELP!" So he's not exactly going after bambi. And having been chased back to my car on Alligator Alley numerous times I can telll you those signs are no joke!

    In fact heres a creepy tail. Last time I was coming from Lil Cuba I was coming back about 40 min into alligator alley and the road is desolate. No one anywhere. In the middle of the road is a ford explorer on its side with all the windows broken out and no one anywhere! No cops, no ambulances, no fire trucks nothing. We stopped checked the car that was litterally in middle of the road on its side. No one was anywhere near it. We called it in and kept going hoping to find someone walking the road but never saw anyone.
