Florida Duck Hunting

Florida is one of the only states in the union that has a strong resident population of mottled ducks and whistling ducks. Both species are highly sought after by duck hunters around the world due to their limited geographic range. Depending on time of season, duck hunts will be along the coast in Homosassa or Cedar Key, Florida.
