where were you when you saw the panther? nobody believes me but i saw a panther just before dark in tosohatchee on long bluff road i was in the bed of a truck and saw it cross after we passed by. but it slinked like a cat and had a long tail. i have seen lots of bobcats and this was no bobcat.
I believe that I saw a panther tail as it entered the palmettos in the River Lakes Conservation Area. It was down near the St Johns River, they might wander the river corridor. I certainly wouldn't be surprised to see one in Tosohatchee!
What is your advice for dealing with boars/feral pigs while hiking?
They seem to be a big problem in this state.
I have run across a lot and I mean a lot of feral hogs while out exploring Florida, some as close as a few feet when we meet on a game trail in tall grass. In all cases I bark like a dog and they run as fast as they can in the opposite direction! So, don't fear pigs as long as you can sound like a dog ;-)
