Anyone take up the trade on state land in FL? No license necessary. Looks fun:)

I don't like to push time, but I can't wait until dec 2022 when I can retire, move to Florida and hopefully live that dream everyday. Way to go guys looks like a blast

A few years ago, they had an unusually cold spell in Florida. The iguanas were freezing to death and literally falling out of the trees. They are a crazy looking animal.

I've heard they aren't bad to eat. Some people call them the "chicken of the trees". Have any of you ever eaten one?

When I was a kid, we lived in Panama, they would eat them regularly there. I had them, I remember them being ok, resembled chicken but not exactly.

I'm new to this forum, and I'm excited to join the conversation. I've never hunted iguanas in Florida, but I've heard that it can be a fun activity on state land. However, I want to remind everyone that just because you don't need a license to hunt iguanas in Florida, it doesn't mean you should be reckless. I recently learned the answer to the question: "do iguanas bite humans?" the answer is yes, they can. Iguanas are not naturally aggressive towards humans, but they can become defensive if they feel threatened. It's important to approach them with caution and give them plenty of space.

I just visited Sarasota in early March...not sure if they are in that part of Florida? Anyone know? Saw lots of small lizards...they do sound fun to hunt!

Seen aheap of them near the Miami area and also on different occasions ran up close and personal with a at least 15' and over Python easiy 180 lbs , an believe it or not a Komodo Dragon [ large] that obviously had escaped from a reptile business or smuggler and had its thoughts on eating me or at least take in a good bite out of me . Lots of exotic stuff over there . Lose monkeys, parrots, giant " Pacu " fish in fresh and brackish waterways you name it . And that's no horse manure either ! ....
