I like to hunt the Talquin Wildlife Management Area because it's close to home. I mainly use this area for huntin' turkey, because I don't mess with the quota system that you need for deer huntin'.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says that the Talquin WMA consists of more than 3,000 acres and is one of nine major tracts in the nearly 17,000-acre Lake Talquin State Forest. Four miles west of Tallahassee, the wildlife management area is bordered to the north by the Ochlockonee River and Lake Talquin. Most of the area is dominated by pinelands, although outstanding examples of slope and ravine forests are found on the western portion of the tract. The area is popular with squirrel and deer hunters. Service roads are available for horseback riding, biking, hiking and wildlife viewing. Wildlife on the area includes red-shouldered hawks , bobcats, gopher tortoise, coyotes, osprey, wild turkey, and bald eagles. This area is a site on the Great Florida Birding Trail. Camping is prohibited.
