Now they're saying the poor fellow has lyme disease. It seems the odds are stacked against him, venemous snakes, lots of mosquitos and aligators. He was last seen Monday evening around 2pm.

Looks like he is married with at least one small child. I sure hope he makes it out alive. May God be with him.

I could not access the web page, so I just say this:

I could never understand why many hunters go out alone, you just never know what could happen out there without a buddy.

Hope all ends well  Undecided

I just read that the day before he went hunting his girlfriend left him, sister said broke his heart, this would certaily leave his mind more unfocused. They're still searching for him.

I hadn't heard about him but he is in my prayers now, sad situation, poor guy.
Holidays start to get alot of people depressed as well and you never know if he just didn't care enough to be careful and as you said maybe unfocused.

The last I checked as of this evening, after 5pm report, this guy is still missing. The search party did find two boot prints however on the opposite side of an alligator infested canal that parallels I-75. They believe these are his boot prints and that he is paralleling the interstate in hopes of finding a safe way to to cross the canal.

 I'm not the only one pulling for him. I really hope he gets out alive and is able to tell his story.

I have followed some articles from Florida, I now understand he was with his hunting buddies and somehow they have gotten separated. I don't think he's lost either. There is no report coming out saying whether the other hunters have heard a firearm discharged or not. If He decided to take his own life or at least maybe had to defend himself from a gator, you would think if a firearm was discharged, they would immediately go in that direction.

From what I've read thus far the other hunters barely knew him. It was reported that gun shots were heard at some point, perhaps Monday or Tuesday. They had found one boot print early in the search and two yesterday evening they believe belonged to him. I think there is a chance he will be found today, I'm really pulling for him, I sure hope he comes out alive.

I'd say most of the info being passed on is from the search parties on this one.

I don't belive an alligator attacked him at this time of year there is no reason an alligator would be aggressive. no meds girlfriend broke up with him missing with a firearm sorry I believe suicide, or some other foul play. I hope i'm wrong

Good for him and his family
Still a few things strike me as odd about the story though
But glad all my doom and gloom predictions were incorrect
