Tate's Hell and Lake George Info

Lucky Hook IILucky Hook II Posts: 540 Officer
Hey guys,

I got muzzleloader permit for Lake George and a general gun permit for Tate's He'll. I have never been to either area.

Any info you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

    Tates hell is named accordingly. I'd venture to say there are spots around there that haven't seen a human foot in 50 years. its a beautiful part of florida. the coast is gorgeous just south of there. good luck!

    Lake George used to be a good place to hunt years ago. Not so much anymore...
    You can blame it on my rebel raisin'...

    There is a reason why tate's ended up state property. Yea, rough. Un-developable.Mostly. A few die hards access it.
    Hunters are present yet relatively uncommon in Florida :wink

    Yet they make it a quota area, never understood that.

    Yet they make it a quota area, never understood that. Guess is,a state teaming in the Millions can muster demand even for Panhandle fact,relative to Florida Population,we're all "Die Hards"

    I witnessed the very beginnings of the "Saving" of Tate Hell-served on key Board at the time. My many inches of files might include acreage agreed to matter.

    To the original poster......'scout' the place. You might move there! Afer all,that was The Grand Idea.

    Lake George gets run over by poachers quite a bit. Multiple access points makes it pretty easy for them. Pretty good road system. I've seen a few good deer in there, but I'd definitely put in quite a bit of time scouting there. Lots of good looking area. I'll be there for the second muzzleloader. Good luck. It's a very pretty place IMO.
