Deer hunts occur in the fall, feral hog hunts occur in January, and turkey hunts occur in the spring. Birds are abundant on Half Moon. Members of a small population of threatened Florida scrub-jays inhabit the area year-round.
Warblers are abundant during spring and fall migrations. Hiking, biking, and horseback riding are most pleasant on non-hunting days in the fall through the spring when temperatures are cooler.
Hunters must comply with all hunting regulations
