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.
