To participate in either a Youth Hunt or a New "Old" Hunters weekend, everyone MUST have their Hunter Safety Card or completed the On-line course. Those who have completed the on-line course may complete their hunter safety field day and final exam but must arrive at the camp no later than 2:00 p.m. the Friday afternoon of the hunt. To sign up for a hunt, e-mail John Fuller at Johndfullerpa@comcast.net.

A typical hunt weekend consists of arriving at camp on Friday afternoon after 1:00 p.m. and setting up camp.  Campers, trailers, or motor homes are okay, but many use a tent.  If using a tent, you will also need tarps and cots or air mattresses to get you off the ground.  If hunters arrive early enough to set up camp, sight in guns, and complete paperwork, we can hunt Friday afternoon until the end of legal shooting time.   We hunt Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon, and Sunday morning and break camp by noon on Sunday.  We shoot clay targets on Saturday morning after the hunt and have an FWC officer give a short talk at lunch about ethics and hunter safety.   There is also a talk about hunting - what to look for and how to get started!  There is a request for a donation of $75 for youth hunts (covers adult and child) and $50 for new "old" hunters and that covers all of your costs for the entire weekend, including food, drinks, shotgun shells, and clay targets.

Youth Hunts

Purpose of FHF

The Future of Hunting in Florida (FHF) was established in 2006 for the purposes of:

- recruiting and retaining hunters in Florida;

-promoting and strengthening ethics and conservation;

-increasing access and opportunities for citizens and visitors to hunt on public and private lands in Florida; and,

- building a unified, strong coalition of hunting organizations. 

FHF sponsors local events in communities throughout the State to teach our youth and adults the benefits of hunting and to promote good ethics . sportsmanship, safety, and conservation.  It is critical for this generation of hunters to join together to promote our hunting heritage, project a positive image of our sport, and preserve, augment, and protect quality hunting opportunities in Florida.
