Hunters can arrive early (3:00 PM) to put bait out and see the ranch in the daytime, or come at 4:00 PM for a safety talk and orientation before heading into the woods around 4:30 PM. We will be riding and looking at different feeders and maybe spending an hour in a stand before dark. After dark, we will be walking with thermal monoculars and scopes to quietly slip up on our quarry. Hunters in good enough shape to walk 3-4 miles will greatly increase their success rate and have more opportunities. Feral hogs compete with our native wildlife for food and bedding areas and cause thousands of dollars in property damage every year. Because of this, the state of Florida does not require licenses, tags, or permits to hunt hogs on private land.
This is a guided hog hunt with thermal optics for up to two hunters.
Itinerary subject to change based on weather, interested, animal activity, etc. Hunters may end hunt whenever they find success.
Blackwater Creek Ranch is a beautiful 1500+ acre ranch surrounded by the natural beauty of Old Florida. Native woods and windows to adjacent fields surround the Lodge facility and its guests. Game abounds on this hunting preserve comprised of oak hammock, pine and palmetto flats, cypress heads, and the Blue Cypress Creek Swamp. Access to Blackwater is extremely limited as most activities are limited to ten lease members and the owners.
