Since a recreational use permit is needed for hunting on the Flint Rock Wildlife Management Area, I haven't actually hunted this place. But when you travel down 98 you're rubbing up against it. If you're a hunter like me, you have to concentrate pretty hard on the road because the sights sure look good!

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission says the Flint Rock Wildlife Management Area is managed in cooperation with The Nature Conservancy and Sam M. Shine Foundation
Flint Rock WMA consists of 19,992 acres in Wakulla and Jefferson counties. The area is bounded on the north by Highway 98 and on the south by the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge. At times, Flint Rock, which is comprised of a mosaic of mature forests, recently logged areas, and newly planted pine areas, may be quite wet. Access to this area is only permitted during hunting seasons and requires a recreational use permit. Camping is prohibited. Escambia River has the richest assemblage of freshwater fish of any river in Florida, including numerous sportfish species â shadow bass, warmouth, bluegill, longear sunfish, redear sunfish, spotted sunfish, spotted bass, largemouth bass, black crappie, chain pickerel, blue catfish, channel catfish, flathead catfish, and sunshine bass. Numerous boat launches are available along the Escambia River.
