Default Florida Panhandle Deer Hunting

Hello all,
I recently moved to Florida (Santa Rosa County) from New Mexico. In New Mexico I hunted mule deer but I have never hunted whitetails. Is there any difference in hunting technique? Also in the panhandle can you just hunt on the WMA's or are there public areas that you do not need to draw a quota permit for?

Thanks!

Glad to have you in NW Florida!

All WMA are not the same, some require a draw and some do not.
Then only certain hunts on a given WMA require a draw.

Which WMA did you have in mind?

Oh ok I wasnt sure which ones did, but I was looking at Blackwater River WMA, Eglin AFB or Perdido River WMA.

I would also be interested in public land not on any WMA but I havent found any so far!

Thanks!

for the next 2 weeks and then muzzleloading season in feburary you don't have to have a quota for blackwater. escambia river you don't need a quota but a boat would be helpful. there are a pile of leases in the area for next year......tony
