Hunting squirrel on Perdido WMA
July 19, 2011, QUESTION: How does hunting squirrel on Perdido River Wildlife Management Area on the Florida side work? Thanks.
ANSWER: Generally, all hunting (including squirrel) in the Perdido River WMA requires a no cost quota permit. The only exception is the small-game season, which runs from December 6, 2011, through January 4, 2012, which allows you to hunt squirrel without a quota permit. You will need to purchase a Florida hunting license and a wildlife management area permit. You will need to stay on the Florida side of the river and in the designated portions of the wildlife management area, because this particular area is broken up into several different segments.
You should have pretty good luck finding plenty of squirrels, because the wildlife management area runs adjacent to the Perdido River.

I hope you this information is helpful. Good hunting!
