FWC – Duck Hunting Rules Change on Tallahassee Area Lakes

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission

Tallahassee FL - The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) passed two rules in September that may affect Tallahassee area duck hunters.

Under the first change, waterfowl hunters may now use internal combustion motors of 10 horsepower or less on Lake Miccosukee in Leon and Jefferson counties. Motor restrictions during the waterfowl season on Carr Lake and Lake Iamonia in Leon County have not changed.

Secondly, waterfowl hunting is now prohibited from or near permanent duck blinds on four Tallahassee area lakes. The lakes are Miccosukee, Iamonia, Carr and Jackson.

The duck blind rule says no one may hunt ducks, geese, mergansers or coots within 30 yards of a permanent blind or anything that violates Florida Statutes prohibiting unauthorized construction on state lands, including stakes, posts, rails and remnant duck blinds.

It defines a permanent blind as anything that provides shelter, cover or concealment for a hunter, but does not include any rooted vegetation. The use of temporary duck blinds, including those made with vegetation, which are removed at the end of each hunt, is allowed.

FWC encourages hunters to use good judgment when carrying vegetation or other blind materials and not to operate overloaded vessels.

The new rules will be in effect during the regular waterfowl, coot and Canada goose seasons. The waterfowl and coot seasons are Nov. 22-30 and Dec. 6 – Jan. 25, 2009. The Canada goose season is Nov. 22-30 and Dec. 1 – Jan. 30, 2009.
