What's the deal with STA 2

Postby Hunter1987 » Tue Oct 15, 2013 3:21 pm

What’s up guys and gals,
I have been lucky enough to get awarded a quota hunt for STA 2 in December; I’ve hunted the other STA’s and love them. However I am unfamiliar with this particular STA and noticed that there is NOT a lot of press, commentaries, or cyber posting's about the place. if you have hunted the place or have some imput please give me some feed-back on STA 2, good or bad it’s all appreciated.
Regards,
:thumbsup:

its has been good sporadically for big ducks. otherwise its a ringneck and teal shoot.

Out of all the STA's the only one IMHO that is worse is 3/4 sunday. My experiences at 2 have been feast or famine. but then again I dont go for the easy ringneck shoot and try for big ducks. Which is a huge gamble in that area.

In STA 2 there are only around 25 spots so there is not as much hunters compared to 3/4 where you have about 50 spots.

Not complaining never have never will, just thankful I got picked. This is a limited quota hunt, almost every duck hunter in South Florida hopes to get at least one STA hunt, I don’t think my posting is going to change anything. Open forum to exchange info and promote the sport….that is all :no:

The STA's are no secret, and to pretend there is a need to keep the information quiet is somewhat silly.

STA 2 is my favorite (simply due to proximity to family), although STA 5 is best as far as numbers. The best thing to do is to go to the scouting day that they provide.

If anybody wants info, or maps that I have created, shoot me a P.M. I don't mind being the bad guy that gives info about them. Its much different than giving info about secret honey holes in my opinion.

The STA's being discussed openly isn't the problem, the biggest issue is with how the state is awarding permits.

For the third year in a row neither I or my hunting groups have drawn regular season permits, though I did get one for Early season this year. Yet every year we talk to people who have drawn two, three or more, sometime permits for different places at the same day & time. Many of these excess permits are never used, while the standby lines and lists get longer every year.

Calls directly to the state and the Director are answered with, "It's a random drawing by computer", so why can't they program it so that no one gest a second permit until every available permit is assigned, then start around again? They don't have an answer for that...

The system sucks and has caused a lot of discontent, but it is never changed.

This is why I don't apply for state opportunity hunts.

Worst mistake I have ever made was to say that I would be happy to give info on STA 2.


If you guys could only see my inbox!!!!
