FWC Wildquest game

The FWC is hosting a game to encourage folks to get out in the woods
My wife and I have been riding the woods every weekend anyway.

So we played....

You Download the App, Join the game and then you get a set of challenges.

Some are pathetically easy...
Some are more difficult.

Easy ones:
Entrance sign to the WMA or Reserve you are at.
Photo of palmettos
Photo and what kind of wetland.

More difficult ones..
A photo of a swallow tailed Kite in flight..
We saw three ST Kites and did not get a photo.... I did a face plant into a palmetto bush trying to get one.

A photo of an example of an animal using camouflage. I got a GOOD one.

You get points for every challenge you download photographic proof of

The goal is 2000 points.... We got 3100 points....

    Nothing yet..... 2000 points gets you in for a drawing for prizes....
    Binoculars, shirts, etc...

    But we did not do it for prizes.... it was fun and added a challenge to something we were already going to do.

    Next might be a Game where you drive the country side and guess which undeveloped lands are going to remain undeveloped, which lands coulda shoulda made for a great new Fee Simple total public WMA, except FWCC and others lost grasp on opportunities and action.
    Its actually too embarrassing to make a Game out of it, and reveals certain FWCC weaknesses.
    Of course nothing is perfect.... another Game.
    Hunters are present yet relatively uncommon in Florida :wink
