Waterfowling here is legal on most bodies of water with public access. The coasts provide an almost-endless opportunity to set up for a hunt. Multiple river systems and WMA's throughout the state are there to be explored. The options are incredible.
There’s a chill in the Florida air, and soon children will be out of school on winter break. During the holidays, I encourage you to take time off from work and spend some quality time with family and friends in the great outdoors.
After thorough online research on hunting-related injuries and fatalities nationwide over the last several years, I have devised five general categories of threats Sunshine State hunters should be aware of before trekking into our landscapes.
Where to Hunt Duck in Florida: If you’re unable to locate productive duck hunting in Florida, you’re simply not trying hard enough. Even a brief glance of Google Earth demonstrates we are not a state wanting for huntable waterways. The interior freshwater rivers, lakes, and Stormwater Treatment Areas garner most hunter attention, but excellent waterfowling exists along the coasts, too. With nearly 2,300 miles of tidal shoreline and rivers that greet the saltwater, Florida’s coastal habitats are winter homes to large numbers of waterfowl.

The summer brings fishing and other recreational activities, but it’s never too early to start planning for the upcoming hunting season. If you’re going to hunt public land, you may submit your applications for fall quota hunt permits from now through June 15 to hunt during archery, muzzleloading gun and the general gun season.
As we exited the bustling Turnpike on a sunny March Friday afternoon after a six-hour drive south from Tallahassee, we noticed the weekend traffic picking up, boats being trailered to the water, tops down on convertibles and Jeeps—spring had arrived in the Sunshine State. Winding back on a county road to a series of dirt roads in western Martin County, my husband Tony and I made our way to a gate where cattle skulls welcomed us from each side of tall fence posts made of railroad ties.
Mention varmint hunting to the seasoned outdoors person and the talk will turn to prairie dogs, coyotes in the snow, and other critters of the mountains and prairies. Even many seasoned varmint hunters don’t realize that Florida, too, can be a good place for this style of hunting.
