Hunting on Public Land

Aucilla Wildlife Management Area

Aucilla WMA 2017-2018 Regulations Brochure & Map


A fellow I hunt with in the Apalachicola National Forest has enjoyed success with his bow for both deer and hog in the Aucilla Wildlife Management Area. So by the time general gun opens, he's already got meat in the freezer.

A quota permit is required during muzzleloading gun and general gun seasons. Recreational access is allowed.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission says that within the 47,532-acre Aucilla Wildlife Management Area are two rivers offering abundant recreational opportunities. Canoe or kayak on the Wacissa, one of the most pristine rivers in North Florida. Stop to swim or snorkel in one of the many springs that feed the river.

In the spring you’ll find hardwood hammock islands covered with zephyr lilies and wild iris. In the late summer scores of swallow-tailed kites gather in the cypress along the river before their migration to South America for the winter.

Hike along the Aucilla Sinks Trail beneath a canopy of oaks, hickory, and magnolia. You'll pass sinkholes and caves created as the Aucilla rises and falls, disappearing underground and resurfacing. The extensive river floodplains provide excellent food and cover for deer and other wildlife.
