Deer, Wild Hog, Gator, and Exotics Hunting in Florida
Boars are also known as wild swine or simply wild pig and are native to much of Eurasia, North Africa, and the Greater Sunda Islands. Now
they inhabit and wreak havoc on farms, woodlands and swamps. They will eat just about anything. Each year they cause hundreds of
thousands of dollars by damaging our farms and wetlands.
Wild pigs or feral pigs are the second-most popular animal hunted in Florida. You can hunt on private property with landowner permission.
Wild pigs may be trapped and hunted year round using any legal to own rifle, shotgun, crossbow, bow, pistol, spear or air gun. There is no
size or bag limits and you can harvest both male and female. No hunting license is required. A gun and light at night permit is not required to
harvest wild hogs with a gun and light on private lands with the landowner’s permission.
Gator or Alligators are opportunistic feeders and some are very aggressive. Especially if they are feed by humans. Once they lose the
natural fear of man they can become a nuisance gator and usually have to be relocated or harvested. A gators diet includes any prey species
that is abundant and easily accessible for consumption. Baby gators or Juvenile alligators eat primarily insects, small fish, and other
invertebrates. Mature Gators or adult alligators eat fish, deer, cats, dogs, snakes, turtles, small mammals, and birds. Florida law states that it
is illegal to kill, injure, capture or possess an alligator or its eggs or to attempt to do any of those things without a permit.
Axis Deer are also called the Indian Deer, Spotted Deer, and the Chital Deer, native to India and Sri Lanka. The male stands about 40 inches
tall and can weigh between 150 to 250 lbs. They are considered by some to be the most beautiful deer in the world and some hunters say
their venison is the best tasting of all deer.
Florida Turkey are similar to the eastern turkeys but smaller and darker in color. They are only found in the peninsula of Florida. They are
praised by the turkey hunter looking for the grand slam. It is estimated that 85,000 to 110,000 turkeys are believed to live throughout the
Florida peninsula. With the density and thickness of the woods, swamps and other surrounding habitat that an accurate estimate of the
population is impossible to calculate.
Whitetail Deer are also call white-tailed deer or Virginia deer. They are a mid-sized deer that is native to the United States, Mexico, Central
America, Canada and South America. In the summer they usually hang around fields or meadows. They use the forests for shade to cool
down. In the cold of winter they will keep to forests or thick brush to get shelter from the cold. Males or bucks weigh about 150 pounds and
the females or does around a hundred pounds. We have a large population of trophy whitetail that inhabits our ranch.
Blackbuck Antelope are also called the Indian antelope because it is found in India, Nepal and Pakistan. Blackbuck Antelope are a beautiful
antelope with a brown to a blackish brown upper body with a white coloration on the stomach underbelly, their rump and on the insides of
their legs. Their face is dark with white circles around the eyes, ears and chin. The male antelope can weigh around 80-90 pounds with a top
weight of around 125 pounds. The females usually around 65 pounds with a max weight of about 75 to 80 pounds.
Fallow Deer is a medium size deer and has a coat that is usually yellow brown with white spots in summer and is more uniformly grayish
brown in winter. The Fallow deer flee or elude predators by using a stiff legged jump and running technique called stotting. They are one of
the few species of deer that do not lose their spots after birth. Full grown male Fallows can weigh from 135 to 205 pounds. The females are
much smaller and weight about 6 to 95 pounds. They are extremely fast because of their powerful legs.
Red Deer The red deer is one of the largest species of deer. The stags or males can weigh upwards of 700 pounds. Red Deer (Cervus
elaphus) are the fourth largest species of deer and are often confused with elk due to their similarity in appearance. Only Red Deer males,
referred to as Stags or Harts, have antlers which they begin growing in the spring shortly after they’ve shed their previous season’s antlers.
The Stags grow a thicker darker grayer colored coat with short neck “Ruff” or mane in the fall. The red deer inhabits most of Europe,
Caucasus Mountains and Asia. They have also been introduced to New Zealand, The United States (Florida), Canada, Peru, Uruguay, Chile,
Argentina and Australia.
Père David Deer is not your ordinary deer. They have giant antlers with a head that is shaped similar to a horse. They can weigh over 550
pounds. This animal has a donkey like tail with hooves similar to a cow with webbing between the toes for swimming in the swamps and
marsh lands of their native China. They are great for eating pond vegetation. They were nearly hunted to extinction only to be saved on a
Squirrels: We have several species of squirrels in Florida. The Eastern Gray Squirrel, Southern Flying Squirrel, Common Fox Squirrel, Big
Cypress Fox, Eastern Gray and the Mexican Grey squirrel. They are a very predatorily orientated critter.
