If you don’t know it already, Gulf County is one massive outdoor playground. And, like kids running towards the playground hoping to get the best swing, avid huntsmen (and women) head to the Northern end of Gulf County to seek thrill and adventure in our great outdoors.
Like our waters, our forests, swamps, rivers, lakes and creeks are home to an abundance of wildlife with more species than you could imagine. No matter what level of excitement you seek, access to our outdoor playground can be reached by foot, boat or vehicle.
Of course, there are certain steps to be followed before you hunt. Securing the proper licenses and permits and understanding hunter safety are the most important. But once you are fully informed, equipped and prepared (check out the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website to be sure), the thrill of the hunt begins! And even better, our playground is already pre-assembled with massive trees for your perch, public boat ramps for easy access to the water and acres and acres of land to hunt.
Not an experienced hunter? No problem. Local guides and outfitters can help. Many have secured hunting leases and hunting clubs are also available. From frog gigging to deer hunting, gator hunting and even wild hog hunting, adventure and excitement awaits. Whether you are hunting for dinner or aiming for the biggest head to mount, local guides can show you how to clean your kill or prepare it for the taxidermist.
And, even if your hunt isn’t as good as you hoped for, spending a day outside enjoying the beautiful Gulf County weather is always better than sitting indoors. We invite you to get your camo on and share your adventure with us on Facebook. We’ll add you to our GCFL Pinterest boards.
In Gulf County, we know camo isn’t just for the woods... it’s a way of life.
