Hopefully, you’ve already started brushing up on your turkey calling, ’cause spring gobbler season is here. Whether you prefer to use a mouth call, box call, slate or any combination, March means it’s time to talk turkey and I, for one, am in full turkey mode!
Great-eating wild hogs are never out of season if you know where to go. Wild hogs, also called wild boars or feral pigs, aren’t native to Florida. They either were introduced by colonists or may even have been brought over by the Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto as early as 1539. Either way, they have adapted and prospered in Florida’s mild climate and are plentiful throughout the state, found in all 67 counties.
Although many hunting seasons are coming to an end, there is still a chance to get out there and score a trophy buck. Late muzzleloader season for zone D starts on February 24th and runs till March 2nd.
From the duck blind to the redfish flats for an extra dose of cold season action. Ask most sportsmen about the action on Tampa Bay and they’ll say it’s a “blast.” Practically speaking, that colloquialism usually starts with a “cast” to snook, redfish, trout and the like.
