    Thanks Bob. This time I brought my shooting stick because the heavy vegetation abd I noticed I missed few shots. Also I had to take few offhand shots.

    When the heat goes away, the iguanas are less active, it's curious you use fall, because here in SF is summer all year, except few months where the temperatures cool a bit, so I'll guess your fall still my summer here, and based on that assumption, iguanas should still active.

    I’m from southern Illinois so yeah my fall will still be plenty warm down there. I just didn’t know if September or October would still be good hunting.

    10 is an excellent number. I’ll have something special for next week! Planning on increasing that counter!

    Watching your hunt makes me feel like I'm on a African safari or maybe like you are hunting dinosaurs. Nice to have some cool critters to go pesting for. Bill

    Loved that !

    I can see why they are becoming such a serious pest.   Keep up the good work, and then sharing it here with us.

    Well done my man!  Keep those iguanas 🦎 in check.  

    I keep hearing/reading about the iguana issues in SF (South Florida).  Where is the line that determines what is considered South Florida?  Do the iguanas only go so far north or have they not spread there yet, in enough numbers, to be considered a problem?

    I have family in the Orlando area and they haven’t heard that there is a problem with iguana in FL so I’m wondering if the iguana haven’t made it up there yet or they won’t go that far?

    I don't think they will reach Orlando, because the temperatures there can reach freezing point and that will kill them, they need warm weather, and that's exactly the problem here in SF, we haven't had any cold winter in a few years, and we are seeing an explosion on their numbers. I think you can have iguanas in big numbers from West Palm Beach down.

    Well that's makes sense.  

    Keep on popping those buggers and I'll keep watching!  Just don't shoot the pool boy….
