While Florida offers a wide variety of species to hunt such as white-tailed deer, wild hogs, black bear, dove, duck, and quail; the sunshine state is best known for its turkey hunting. This is because Florida is the only place in the world where Osceola turkey can be found. This means hunters seeking the grand slam will have to plan a visit to hunt the Florida peninsula. Exotic species to hunt in Florida include the alligator and venomous Burmese python.
With nearly 8,000 lakes, over 10,000 miles of rivers, and 2700 miles of shoreline, the list of options Florida offers fishermen is nearly endless. Top species include sailfish, tarpon, sea trout, red drum, snook, panfish, snapper, large-mouth bass, grouper, and mackerel.
