FWC definition of still hunting
Ive looked through the wma brochure for a quota still hunt i got but cant seem to get find anything that defines still hunt. My interpretation has always been that youd have to hunt STILL in a treestand, blind etc. but here is an example from websters
Definition of STILL HUNT
: a quiet pursuing or ambushing of game
Verb 1. still-hunt - hunt (quarry) by stalking and ambushing
I plan on calling fwc and asking but posting here first to see if anyone has had the same question or had it answered.
It means no dogs and no lining up 10 people across and driving the quarry.
I believe sitting in a stand and stalking are both considered still hunting as far as the law is concerned. I define still as stand hunting, then there's slip hunting where you sneak around and hope to see a deer before he sees you, and spot and stalk which is self explanitory.
Interesting, I'd like to know the law as far as a drive goes. We've done drives many times in Ocala NF. Been a long time since we did one so I forgot about them.

Shut your hole!
I've noticed that slot of rules are interpreted differently
from officer to officer. I'd rather ask first and avoid the encounter or atleast
seem like I've attempted to research it and Have a valid
Argument. Thanks guys. I'll post up what fwc says about it.
