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.
To reserve a hunt, FHF requests a donation of $75 for an adult and youth on a youth hunt, and $50 for a new "old" hunter. You may use the PayPal below or send check to P.O. Box 10949, Tallahassee, FL 32302. Donations may be returned if space is not available.

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.
