Top News for Turkey

Hunitng news From The FWC passed a new rule that limits the methods of take allowed during spring turkey hunts on WMAs, beginning with this coming spring turkey season (2011).  The new rule restricts firearms to shotguns and muzzleloading shotguns only, using shot no larger than No. 2.  All legal bows and crossbows can also be used.  But all rifles, pistols, buckshot and slugs are now prohibited during spring turkey hunts on WMAs.  The exception is on Joe Budd, Raiford and Santa Fe Swamp, muzzleloading rifles will still be allowed, because spring turkey hunting on these areas is restricted to primitive guns only.

Blue crab trap area closure set to end

News Release from
January 14, 2011
Contact: Lee Schlesinger, 850-487-0554
The harvest of blue crabs from traps in all waters of Franklin County west to the Florida-Alabama border will reopen on Jan. 15. The use of traps to capture blue crabs was prohibited for a 10-day period in this area so that lost and abandoned traps that remained in coastal and inland waters could be identified and removed.
Three regional, 10-day blue crab trap closures take place in designated areas in Florida in odd-numbered years, and three other closures occur in even-numbered years. One of these closures begins on Jan. 16 in all waters of the St. Johns River system.
