Seminole Whitetail Deer Hunting

Florida deer aren’t know for their massive size, but the Seminole subspecies of white-tailed deer should be on every hardcore deer hunter’s bucket list. Our deer frequent the swamps, cypress heads, oak hammocks, pine woods, palmetto flats, pastures, and agricultural fields of our properties and our management practices allow us to harvest bucks over 130 inches every year. South Florida whitetails usually begin to rut in late July and early August, and continue to rut on our North ranches into October. This activity gives our hunters a great chance to hunt a trophy buck through archery season and into gun season. Most of our deer hunts take place from tree stands and ground blinds, but sight and stalk opportunities exist for those who wish to attempt to get really close to one on the ground.

We adhere to strict management and harvest practices to maximize our hunters’ opportunities at trophy bucks. Because of this, we only offer a limited number of deer hunts every year. Processing and taxidermy are available for an extra charge.

Florida Deer Season

We hunt both the South and Central Florida zones (zones A and C). The South zone season typically starts with archery the last weekend in July followed by muzzleloader and rifle seasons through the first week of January. The Central zone season typically begins with archery the second weekend in September followed by muzzleloader and rifle seasons through the third week of January. Current Florida deer season dates and regulations can be found here.
