    Can you hunt hog year round on WMA's?

    When you look at the individual WMA brochures it shows hog during bow, muzzle, general, etc. but nothing about hunting hog outside of those dates. But when you look at the "Florida Hunting Seasons & Dates" it shows "Wild Hog : Year-round by all legal rifles, shotguns, muzzleloaders, crossbows, bows and pistols."

    Can someone clear this up for me?

    as far as I know there are no WMA's that allow hog hunting year round, at least in my region and the one's I am familiar with. Only on private land or state land. Need to check each WMA brochure.

    As far as I know the answer is no you can not a WMA is a wildlife management area that is regulated by the state that's one of Florida's biggest down falls is there really isn't any state owned land that you can just go hunt such as there is in a lot of other states GA for example has the forestry land

    Someone told me once that Kissimmee River allows hog hunting year round.

    Someone go shoot a hog on a WMA without a hunting license PLEEEZE...according to our friends at FWC you don't technically need one? Because it's not a game animal.

    Certain wma's like Corbett does not allow hogs to be taken during small game where as other areas allow the harvest of wild hogs during all deer seasons and small game

    I had the understanding that when there is a season of any kind of game you can hunt hogs

    You don't know me but you want to be me!

    Not True, on WMA's hogs must be specified to be legal to take.
