Hunting in the Womack Creek Wildlife
Management Area can be a rugged adventure as this area is
separated only by roads from it's big brother Tate's
Hell. You can enjoy pretty much the same levels of
success for deer and turkey hunting.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission says that the area consists of nearly 14,000 acres in Franklin and Liberty counties just north of Carrabelle and is bordered by the Ochlockonee River, the Crooked River, and Highway 67. The area is part of the almost 200,000-acre Tateâ€™s Hell State Forest.
In the 1960s and 1970s the hydrology of Tateâ€™s Hell was significantly altered for pine plantations. The owners constructed roads and ditches and planted dense stands of pine. Today the Creek Unit is mostly pine plantations with some hardwoods.
Deer hunting is popular in the pine areas, and squirrel hunting is good in the forests near both the Ochlockonee and Crooked Rivers. Wildlife viewing, hiking, biking, and horseback riding are permitted on any open road in the forest unless posted otherwise. Wildlife that may be seen on the area include wild turkey, feral hogs, white-tailed deer, wood ducks, Florida black bear, box turtles, swallow-tailed kites, and ground doves.
Camping is permitted at designated campsites. The Recreation Area offers a primitive campground with picnic pavilion, bathhouse, and boat ramp with access to Ochlockonee River. Tent camping only is allowed, and a self serve pay station is located at the entrance.
