Easy access to hunting areas and a hunter success rate nearly twice the national average make Florida a great place to hunt ducks. Blinds with natural cane growth are used for cover and their use is rotated so they are not used more than once per week. There are decoys and chairs for two to four hunters in each blind, and the blinds are located on dry ground within a series of dike systems or on small islands. Guests are required to have a Florida Hunting License, Florida Duck Stamp, Migratory Bird Permit and Federal Duck Stamp to participate in this expedition, which can be ordered from www.myfwc.com. Apparel for this hunt should include hip boots, or waders during the colder dates, long sleeve camouflage shirts, pants and hat. You may also require some form of camouflage rain gear. You will need a cooler for your birds and don’t forget the bug spray.
