New to Southern Florida

Postby S.Morgan » Sun Feb 23, 2014 7:26 am

Hello. I'm going to moving to the Coral Springs area in a few months and would like some input on the hunting in south Florida.I was born and raised in Indiana, an Army Vet and an avid deer hunter so this transition will be huge for my family. Thanks in advance and happy hunting.

Thats a whole different world down in that part of the state!

Have you been to FWC website to see the available options as far as management lands go?
Other than that, its pretty pretty pricey to get in on a lease within a decent driving distance.

Good luck and welcome!

There are some $1000 leases north of me, and sometimes you can find a kind landowner with a small parcel to lease here and there
but yep, your right, if your anywhere close (2 hours +/-) to a major city.....$$$$
I imagine though its that way throughout the country now.

ok to all northern hunter coming down
Fish and wildlife commission. One office for hunting fishing or general state police force. FWC.

Ok each public land area has it own laws yes there laws. Read them. All Private lands is under Fl State Laws or your lease rules but they cant supersede state laws like Public land areas can do.


Also remember our deer are small ( 110 lb is good a live weight) because in most public area your restricted to walking or biking to go off road no atvs.
This is so you can drag or pack it out on your shoulder. I dont care who your are a mile with 70 lbs is not fun. The farther north in the state the bigger they get.
the farther south the smaller they get.

One place i hunt i have shoot a 5.5 doe 82 lbs

bs


Hate that part.
THere are times when they have roads and two-tracks that are driveable but your not allowed to access them.
Makes for a Looooong haul on your back or bike if your 2 miles in with a kill
