    I was concerned about this one. The ONF site said that gun hunting was over on Jan 11th. Is that not the case? Or are the hog hunting rules somehow different? I think we need a definitive call on this since more than a few of us will be walking around that weekend.
    Hedgehogs! Why can't they just share the hedge?

    Hog season is year round in Florida. I am not sure if Ocala has other rules though.

    Rule stated here: Hunt camps will open at 8 a.m. the day before general gun season and will close at 6 p.m. the day after the end of general gun season. For individuals purchasing only half a season the first pass runs from 8 a.m. November 12, 2010 to 12 a.m. December 12, 2010. The second pass is for 1 a.m. December 13, 2010 to 6 p.m. January 10, 2011.

    FWC rules state: General Gun Season Nov. 6, 2010 - Jan. 23, 2011
    These rules are not coinciding with each other.

    Reserve a campsite

    My suggestion is that whomever has made the reservation at Buck Lake, call the reservation office and get confirmation. It is easy to see why anyone planning on hiking to or from or around Buck Lake. Would like to know hunters are not in the area. Or if they are, where to avoid when away from camp.



    Thanks Doc B for researching the answer to "Flackfizer's" concerns. That one if off the list now.

    "On private property with landowner permission, wild pigs may be hunted year round using rifles, shotguns, crossbows, bows or pistols. There is no size or bag limit, and you may harvest either sex. Also, no hunting license is required.

    On wildlife management areas (WMAs), hogs may be taken during most hunting seasons, except spring turkey. But, if it’s during archery season, you must use a bow – during muzzleloading gun season, you can only use a muzzleloader. And, you do need a hunting license as well as management area permit and any other necessary permits to hunt wild pigs on WMAs – where on some, daily bag limits on wild pigs do apply, and on a few, there’s even a minimum size limit on what you can take. "

    I telephoned the Ocala NF Ranger station today, but ended up with a voicemail. I will contact them tomorrow and get an official clarification on the hunting vs hiker questions. I will post the result here, on this thread, and also the new planning thread that Islander has begun. I will also get a clarification on the time we can take possession of Buck Lake for the hang on Friday, 1/21. Kind of sounds like an invasion of some sorts, doesn't it? :>0

    I was able to talk with the Lake George Ranger Station today. We are in the clear as far as deer hunting season goes. According to the ranger station, we should have no conflicts with hiking the trails. And naturally, we have our own secluded and private campground that is reserved just for us at Buck Lake.

    I will telephone the ranger's station the day before to get the gate code to give us access to Buck Lake and its parking and camping pleasures. Check in will be anytime after 12:00 noon on Friday, Jan 21. Check out time is 10:00 am on Monday, Jan 24.

    Please let me know if there are any other questions specific to campground reservations or our stay at Buck Lake for the long weekend.
