Broadmoor: Bring waders, prepare to cross deep rim ditches and show up on time. The Broadmoor page on FWC should tell you what order you will pick in. The area is divided up into cells and you pick a cell for your party to hunt in. If you can get down to scout it beforehand, do it.


Ocklawaha: I hope they finally cleared that place out. It was overrun with vegitation that made it almost impossible to walk in, and even more difficult for boats. Hopefully others will have more insight to the condition of that WMA now.

Broadmoor is my favorite place to hunt ducks in Fl, just get out there & scout, like said above watch out for the deep rim ditches :yes: LOL
I drew Ocklawaha for the 22nd (the same day I leave for Canada) just my luck.

The only place you are going to get a jon boat in down there is on the lake in Goodwin.

First shot I usually miss, the second I normally hit in the same spot, the third more or less is like a "screw that coot!"
