Here’s a nametag for you. We think you’ll wear it with pride.

The idea is to feature you and others who want to be identified as part of a group of folks with common outdoor interests and goals.

Each of us is a Florida Sportsman, embracing the credo we’ve espoused for nearly 50 years, and being proud to say it. What we think and do amounts to a way of life that we consider to be especially important.

Since 2012, we’ve been bringing your personal comments from typical persons in this community of diverse interests and dedication to the fishing and hunting world.

Does this sound like you? Are you a Florida Sportsman?

Where strong advocacy for our outdoors and its critters is paramount. Where you’re clearly on nature’s side? Will you fight for and demand effective fisheries management. Fight for access and against ill-advised total closures. Understand the difference between a family’s limit and fish being taken by the ton to market.

Do you find a sense of adventure and fun on the water or in the woods, are you willing to help others, teach youngsters and encourage traditional and fair methods when it comes to fishing, diving, boating or hunting in the sunshine state?

Is this you? Does the nametag fit? We suspect it does and would like to include you in our list of featured Sportsman. Tell us your story.
