Florida Small Game Hunting

rabbitSmall game hunting is a longstanding tradition in Florida, but you don't have to be a longtime resident or spend much money to enjoy it.  All you really need is a spirit of adventure, a shotgun or .22 rifle, and a place to go.  The diversity of small game species and habitats in Florida nearly guarantees that some type of small game hunting can be found nearby.  Local Wildlife Management Areas and Public Small Game Hunting Areas are excellent places to go small game hunting.
