Nice job. We saw a big-en once in the keys and I was shocked how big it was, it was very cool to see up close. Glad to hear you helped one out.

Great story. It's stories like these that needs to make the news more often not for personal publicity, but to set examples to others besides all the shoot'em stuff.
