Turkeys in Tiger Bay Rima Ridge Unit?

by Turkey Hunter

March 19, 2012, QUESTION: Are there a lot of turkeys in Tiger Bay Rima Ridge Unit?

ANSWER: I don't know about the density of turkeys in the Rima Ridge Unit of Tiger Bay Wildlife Management Area. But due to its smaller size with ample road access and nearby water, I would venture to guess that it contains at least some pockets that hold turkeys. The fact that it is even in the quota system for spring turkey would suggest that there are birds present. If you don't have a quota permit yet, you need to apply now. Here is a link to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission's website for information regarding quota/limited entry hunts.

Since you can only hunt during the quota weekends, it wouldn't take long to scout on a weekday. So apply for your permits, do your scouting, then if there are no permits left for this year, you'll know when to apply for next year's permits. You can find a link on my website for the Rima Ridge 2011-2012 Brochure here (under the Southeast Region).
