State selling public hunting land.need your help!

Postby whaknstak » Fri Jul 12, 2013 1:55 pm

A local tract of public land totaling 3,700 acres in north Florida is in the process of being sold to private individuals. In two weeks the state will be auctioning it off to the highest bidder. This property has been used for outdoor recreation including hunting, fishing, hiking, and horseback riding for over 100 years. Please click this link to go to the facebook page and like to sign this online petition. If you feel inclined, email the governor or commissioner Adam Putnam and demand that we keep wards creek in Jefferson county open to the public, and not sell out to special interest groups.

this is important for anyone who hunts miccosukee. you will no longer be allowed to hunt the edge of the lake or anywhere in wards creek. this area is prime for ducks and big bucks. support this please or else it will be lost forever.

Nap is right. It will be posted and fenced. And this time it will be legal. Please take two seconds and like our page and make a phone call to a local rep. Time is crucial, and your voice as fellow sportsman will carry weight.
