        Anybody know any good places to deer hunt in the Tampa FL area? I’m down here on a job and I’m missing the best part of the rut in Ohio. Would love to get out this weekend. If I understand the regs correctly it is currently gun season in this area but it seems as if the season is not always the same on public as it is on private land here.

            The Hillsboro wildlife area requires muzzleloading or archery

              I saw that. Wish now that I’d have brought my muzzleloader or bow. All I’ve got with me is my AR like I normally do when on a trip.

                An hour North of Tampa. The Chassahowitzka Wildlife mngt area. It is rifle season for deer and you can hunt either deer or hogs there. Need hunting lic and deer lic for deer. Don’t need anything for hog other than a bad attitude. Season is on now and will last until Jan. 7.
                Day use fee is waved for hunters. I’ll be out there Tues. Florida requires a 5 round magazine though for hunting.
