Moved and looking for land to hunt

I've moved from NC to south Florida. I am looking for somewhere to hunt feral hogs. I'd appreciate the chance to hunt new game and maybe keep hog population down. I have a bow, pistol, shotgun and an AR.

There are several gun clubs as well as a lot of ranches. You might contact local FDOW office where you live - they may have some pointers.

You can learn the state areas from the wildlife folks; they have a website. You can even buy a license online. (I got a non-resident fishing license, that way.)

A monthly hunting/fishing news magazine is Woods 'N Water.

Craigslist .... always clubs looking for members on there, or post asking for landowners with hog problems.

Watch out for pythons.

Pythons leave you alone; damn cottonmouths chase after you - and gators during mating season are nothing to tangle with

I don't have experience with pythons, but the part about cottonmouths and gators is straight truth. I even had a cottonmouth come right at me last weekend. He would've kept coming, too, if I hadn't gotten the 12 ga swung around on him.

They don't usually bother me. But I've killed a couple at work in the past few months. A shovel usually fixes them.

+1 to staying away from the cottonmouths and especially the gators when Steve Spurrier was their coach... Oh wait, we are talking real gators. Yep, during mating season the lizards get a little uppity about interlopers. If you hear the sound of someone gunning a small outboard in short spurts, run faster than the guy next to you!

That's good to know about the gators.
