Florida or Louisiana

Postby USAFdeerhunter » Fri Jan 13, 2017 6:46 am

Well, the AF has decided that my time in MS has to come to an end this summer. My options are Hawaii, Louisiana, California, Florida, and New Jersey. My question to y'all...anyone have any experience hunting the Fort Walton Beach area of Florida, or the Shreveport area of LA? Gotta make an informed decision on where the hunting is better!

I have not been to either place but between those two I would say hands down the Shreveport area. They kill some really big bucks in La. Here is a 35K acre WMA by Shreveport. http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/wma/32648 and a 6k plus: http://www.wlf.louisiana.gov/wma/2784

Louisiana. Glad you're not opting for NJ, CA, or HI. If you did go to Florida, Alabama has big ones if you can make the drive north.

there used to be a very active guy on the forum who was stationed in FL, and he hunted quite a bit down there. LUGNUT was his screen name, super nice guy.. I bet he would still answer you if you pm'd him or emailed him.

Personally, I would prob do Louisianna. Hawaiii would also interest me, depending on how long you will be there.

I started my career at BAFB 22 years ago, so I know the area, but never got to really hunt it. I am hoping for LA, but I have a feeling the AF is going to choose Florida.

For me it would be Florida. Heard there is mighty fine turkey hunting at Eglin AFB. Surely on half a million acres I could find something :)

Absolutely Glenn...besides there's a real good chance that when I retire it will be back here in MS in a couple years.

Thanks again for your service, I would say Florida, or Louisiana, would be my personal choice. Both have a lot to offer sportsman. Hawaii not so much except fishing. They have hogs in the mountains, but land is for the most part privately owned. Which ever you choose, please stay with us and post pictures of your catches and kills.
