I am a very luck man to day. Sometimes it is just not your time. I was by myself running up the L'Anguille River like I had done many times before. I lost the gripe on the long handle of my Go Devil as I was turning around in the River. As I went to grab the handle, the boat went to one side and started taking on water. The boat turned over, and I was out in the water. I kept my senses, got on my back, and let my waders keep me up. I floated to a tree top, got my breath, and swam on my back to the bank. I knew the woods real well and started walking staying in water I could wade. Of course my phone was of no use. I knew there was a levee about 1/4 of a mile away that I could walked down for a 1/2 mile to a gravel road which would take me to my truck another 1/2 mile away. I made it. Lost my gun, boat, motor, gas tank, hunting bag with duck calls and all other things you take. Don't go hunting alone, let someone know where you are, don't panic. Been hunting for over 60 years and hope to see my 73 birthday March 3rd. Please be careful!
