New to Tampa area looking to hunt
I just moved to Tampa . Looking to bow hunt
WOW..Welcome to the area. this is a real tough place to hunt if you don't want to drive a long way , or you don't have private property. there are special opportuinity hunting areas that get hit pretty hard.
Welcome, there are a few guys on here from that area that I'm sure can point you in the right direction. Where are you coming from?
Welcome to FL
Plenty of places to hunt and now is the time to fill out quota hunt applications
Within a couple of hours drive: Green Swamp, Richloam, Arbuckle, Ocala, Goethe, Cedar Key Scrub, Lower Suwannee to name a few....all have deer & hog & turkey waiting for an arrow
Some of these don't need permit and there's plenty of land but like brewski says , some get hit hard but still thousands of acres with nobody in them
Take some day trips this summer to check them out, might be a lot of closed gates but that's what feet or bike is good for
Java, What part of Tampa Bay are you from?
itshot, is Richloam good for Archery?
Might be looking for some help with food plots soon, that might be worth a bow hunt or two! Name, Age, where are you from, hunting experience...etc
