    I am new to the Alabama area and was having a hard time finding a private hunting area till yesterday. My brother in law asked if I had any fish, there was a older lady that he worked with had some family that was visiting this weekend and wanted to cook them some fresh fish. I told him the only fish I had was two gallon bags of crappie that I had caught a couple of weeks before but he was more then welcome to have them. The lady was overwhelmed and called me and thanked me. Then she asked if I ever hunted and I explained that I was new to the area and was having a hard time finding private land to hunt on. She said we have 500 arcres near the Flint River that has not been hunted to her knowledge in over 10 years that I was more then welcome to hunt. I told her I would keep her supplied in fish if I could hunt so I got the best of both worlds fishing and hunting

    Now that is luck! Your kindness was rewarded and you made someone happy in the process. Tells a lot about you and her. Glad to see you have a good place to hunt now.

    Congratulations on the good fortune, sounds like it may be a great place to hunt but more importantly it sounds like you may have started a life time frienship.

    Keith I will tell you where I got those fish... We launched at Waterfront boat ramp and went across the lagoon there and fished under the HWY 79 bridge

    Good deal! You made that woman happy with the fish, & now maybe you'll be blessed with a good deer in exchange. That's a great story.

    Looks like you got yourself a great bartering set up there. All the more reason to wish you luck on the fishing!
