Appreciate any help. Been reading some posts. I just got into huntin' this year, only rifles so far, got a hog in a canned hunt. If anyone wants to partner up for a scouting trip, I am up for it. I don't have snake boots. I have a handheld. I live in Tampa area. Willing to learn. Thanks.

If you are lookin to hunt the greenswamp i would suggest gettin snake boots...lotta cottonmouths n rattlers out there...as for advice find the deer n hog sign n hunt it...i have been told by some old timers that greenswamp is the hardest place in the state to hunt...ive hunted the swamp for 10 years...its tough huntin so be prepared for a challenge...

Thanks Woods. I'll pick up a pair this weekend. Any minimum boot length recommended? I am up for a challenge, but am definitely a hunting greenhorn. There's some WMA info/ regs I can't figure out from the myfwc website, mind if I pick your brain? Mostly about terminology and such. Maybe some tips to minimize newbie mistakes that piss off the old timers? I also got Awarded Cary for Feb 2013 its a rimfire ONLY WMA. Any comments are appreciated.

If their called snake boots. They come one lenth. Comes to just below yur knee. Dicks sells them. Ask your questions. We are cool. Or pm

I would add to what woods said. Hunting Public land period is more difficult than sitting on a food plot or over Bait on private property. But it's still free and fun.

Thanks DT. I am wondering what Bayheads is/are. Also does anyone know if you can use shot guns on a Rimfire only WMA? What about a Slug Barrel on a shot gun? I couldn't get answers on MyFWC. In the past I have only done a few hours of stalking and scouting hogs in the past, but just that, a TOTAL of a few hours. Found a few groups, but could not get in position for a clear shot. Then I did a dog hunt, BAM!! First Hog. I am a bit intimidated going to G/S, since it would be the first time on my own and I totally have no clue. I own a Summit Climber, can I use it there? Should I use it there?Please suggest where can I get maps. The MyFWC one is very basic(useless?).

Yes. You can use your climber and is the #1 choice for GS. A bay head or Cypress head is s clump of thick trees that have lots of shade and Wildlife will bed down or use these to hide in. If you go to google maps you can see them. You will see a roundish looking thick woods on satellite. Use your google maps and the GS WMA map together. You should try to get out there on Nov 16 to find out where you want to set up.
