I would like to go duck hunting this season. I was told that you could duck hunt on the Gulf Island National Seashore -- is that the case? Are there any areas worth looking into?

I have canoe, but no retrieving dogs.

Any tips or info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

You can hunt over by Portofino, It pisses those condo off every year. Just like most duck hunting, you'll freeze your ass off with that wind coming across the bay

You can legally duck hunt in the state of Florida on any body of water that has public access, and not posted no hunting. There’s no set backs from shore, private property, or homes. You just can’t shoot over, at, or towards occupied dwellings. You can kill ducks in ankle deep water with a million dollar house 15’ behind you on Pensacola beach.

Does this include state/federal parks if they don’t own an rights to the waterway?

You’ll have to read their brochures. If their closed to hunting then you obviously can’t hunt. If it don’t say then your good to go. I’ve hunted the bay, sound, river, ponds for over 30 years. It still surprises me how easy the law is. You just have to read very carefully.
