Where to Hog Hunt in Orange or Lake County?

January 27, 2012, QUESTION: I would like to go hog hunting in Orange or Lake counties. Any suggestions to where to go in those counties? I'm down visiting family for a couple of weeks and thought I'd try hog hunting. Always wanted to do it. I've only hunted
whitetails in Connecticut.

ANSWER: Welcome to Florida. We have some pretty good hunting down here in in the public wildlife management areas. One good place near where you're at is the Green Swamp Wildlife Management Area. It is on 50,692 acres of public land located in Lake, Polk, & Sumter Counties. There is no size or bag limit when hunting wild hogs there.

Another nearby area is Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area. It is on 30,701 acres in Orange County. There no size or bag limit when hunting wild hogs there either.

There are other good hog hunting wildlife management areas a little farther away from Lake and Orange Counties. Some with pretty good reputations are: Three Lakes WMA, Triple N Ranch WMA, and Bull Creek WMA, in Osceola County; and Flying Eagle WMA in Citrus County.

You can find links to these brochures on my website.

You do need a hunting license as well as management area permit to hunt on any public land in Florida. You can find out information on how to obtain those HERE.

Hope you enjoy your stay in Florida. Good luck with the hunt!

Guided or semi guided hog hunts in or @ Orange County?
by: strikinmike

Because of time limitations, I may explore the possibility of using a guide to go on my first attempt on a hog hunt. Just going out blind without any knowledge of the areas or terrain is kind of a shot in the dark. Any reputable companies in that area that you can suggest? . . . strikinmike

I don't personally know of any hunting guides in that area. However, The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has a directory of guides and outfitters. You may want to contact one of these listed here: list of Hunting Outfitters and Guides in Florida.

Another source would be to contact the Chamber of Commerce in the Orange County area.
