BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsIt started with the download of a social media app, it escalated with anonymous posts spreading rumors and gossip, and it culminated with a threat that landed one Clewiston High School senior in juvenile detention facing a second-degree felony charge. On Monday, Sept. 22, the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce was alerted about a threat made against students at Clewiston High School on a social media app called Yik Yak. The app allows users to post anonymous thoughts on a bulletin-board-like platform for others within a 10-mile radius to see. “News, funny experiences, shout outs and jokes spread faster than ever through Yik Yak’s tight-knit community,” boasts the app’s description. News certainly does travel fast on Yik Yak. According to school administrators, a group of students downloaded the app at the Tiger football game on Friday, Sept. 19, and by the following Monday enough “news” had spread that an anonymous poster made a threat to shoot up the roughly 200 students who eat in A lunch. The sheriff’s of ce was able to track down the “anonymous” poster using GPS tracking technology and arrested 17-year-old Manual Castanon BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e Clewiston NewsIn the ongoing effort to maintain the Herbert Hoover Dike, the 143-mile earthen structure that circles Lake Okeechobee and keeps potentially residential-encroaching waters at bay, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is midway through the most comprehensive study yet of the reliability and safety of the dam. Even as the Corps moves through substantial rehabilitation efforts on the southeastern rim of the lake, strategic work at headquarters focuses on the overall scope of the Corps’ work at the lake, rather than the Corps waiting or risking that undiagnosed issues could pop up when it’s too late. The three-year study, which is expected to be completed by the summer of 2015, is labeled as the “ nal roadmap” to addressing and reducing the failure risk at the Herbert Hoover Dike. “This dam study is a very comprehensive look at the entire dike of levee around Lake Okeechobee, and BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsMore than a year after the headline “Should Clewiston stop operating its golf course?” ran in The Clewiston News, city of cials have given optimistic reports about the public course that has been plagued with high operating costs and very little revenue for the past decade. “The city’s subsidy to the golf course was $100,000 less this year than last,” boasted City Manager Al Perry, speaking to the harsh reality that the city was underwriting on average $429,000 each year to support the Clewiston Public Golf Course from 2001 to 2014, according to data prepared by the city of Clewiston’s Finance Department. In 2008, the city subsidized $721,227 of the golf course’s nearly $1.2 million operating budget. The amount of support needed from the city for the course has decreased since the peak $721,227 six years ago, but an average annual subsidy of $444,000 was recorded from 2009 to 2013. After the city subsidized nearly $396,000 in 2013, of cials knew something had to be done at the course. The city hired PGA Professional and former Clewiston resident Robbie Rush, who was charged with an immense task: attract more golfers. And that is just what Rush did. Sending out email blasts and monthly calendars listing the numerous training events, tournaments and scrambles, Rush organized and advertised events throughout the season, and the result was more activity at the golf course, according to City Manager Perry. “Play was up this year, revenue was up this year. ... That’s the bene t of having Robbie,” said Perry. The course saw an increase in participation from youth and ladies at the course, as Rush held clinics to improve aspects of their game, such as swing, short game and chipping.

Human Grumbling and God’s ResponseBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martin’s ChurchIt takes a special person to listen to us when we’re not in the best of moods. Usually, an angry or bitter approach brings a like response. Someone awhile back was telling me about all the missiles being put into space and how they polluted our atmosphere and were a waste of time and money. I told him “ You don’t know the half of it, I lived near Cape Canaveral for awhile and many of them were sent up unannounced.” My answer was apparently unexpected and caused my complainer to wonder if things were worse off then he imagined. It ended the complaint about something that was totally out of my control. Other times I have heard people “grumble” and realized there was nothing I could do. Often I felt what they were saying was justi ed and merited some consideration. There were times, though, when I was the target and it was tempting to counter; people who were really unaware of what was going on or who had not been around for a long time and decided they knew best about what was going on or how to run things. I knew that in reality a confrontation would do no good. It was better simply to state my case and recognize their complaints were quite possibly from wanting to see things be improved. Every once and awhile I’d run into someone who was mad at God Himself! I’ve had to learn that God is not out there to do my bidding at my convenience or because it would make things better for me. Many of the so-called “acts of God” are not things that please people at all. Prayers sometimes are more like demands than intercessions and I’ve known of persons that pray “If you do this, God, I will do that” without considering that God may know what He is doing in the rst place. The message about it all that was given to me was “Keep praying until you get it right” and then God will answer. Maybe it’s not about “my will be done” after all! Our lesson cycle spoke of a particularly difcult time for the people of Israel and their forty years in the wilderness (cf. Exodus 16). They have escaped from Egypt and tyranny and the realization sets in that the time by themselves will be dif cult. Complaints start coming into the leadership; “If only we had died by the hand of the Lord in the land of Egypt when we ate our ll (Exodus 16:3)” and “you have brought us out into this wilderness to kill the whole assembly with hunger(ibid).” The Lord listens; “…because He has heard your complaining against the Lord (v.7)” Complaints do not bring vengeance or retaliation; they bring hearing, understanding and relief. Moses reminds the people “You will know that it was the Lord when he gives you meat to eat in the evening and all the bread you want in the morning because He has heard your grumbling against Him” (v. 8). Anger by His people causes the Lord to respond out of love and kindness in return: that’s a very, very special gift! Paul echoes and teaches what God has done in his Epistle to the Romans. “Do not repay anyone evil for evil…do not be overcome by evil but overcome evil with good (ch. 12; vss 1721).” From the beginning, God sets this example with His people; grumbling is with the understanding that others are hurting; complaints are with the realization that God’s guidance is not fully understood. All too often, a human’s rst instinct is to say “Oh yeah!...” and begin a tirade and counter-offensive when people feel they are being accused of something. Listening at such times doesn’t always come easily; and especially listening to the pain at the heart of it all. Now and again, God is speaking through the midst of it all if we listen; listen beyond the words and look for Him, and then respond as He would have responded. If you would like to contact Rev. Thomas about this column or have an idea for one, please send an email to fatherthomas@ saintmartins-clewiston.org.Community AnnouncementCLEWISTON — Community Presbyterian Church, 407 Royal Palm, invites all to attend worship service at 11 a.m. each Sunday.

FLORIDA SOUTH WESTERN STATE COLLEGEMembers of Cape Coral’s Korean War Veterans of Southwest Florida Chapter 155 established a scholarship endowment for military students attending Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW). For the last nine years the chapter has funded $1,000 scholarships for a veteran or the sibling of a veteran from Southwest Florida who is registered at FSW, but this year the organization decided to establish a $15,000 endowment to augment its annual scholarship giving. “Approximately ve years ago it was voted on by the organization to raise funds to start an endowment in our chapter’s name, knowing that this would be on record long after we’re gone,” said Bob Kent, treasurer for KWVA Chapter 155. “The funds for this effort have come from several raf es, soliciting at local establishments such as Wal-Mart and RaceTrac, Aviation Day at Page Field, and several small grants from various corporations.” On average, 400 students enrolled at FSW receive veteran’s bene ts each year. While these students are each eligible for the $1,000 scholarship, the endowment paves the way for more of them to receive this vitally important assistance. Veterans at the college train in all variety of elds that bene t the Southwest Florida community. “I am immensely thankful for the scholarships I received from the Korean War Veterans. They helped me meet my nancial obligations in the trying times of the recession,” said FSW student and veteran Carlos Barahona, who explained that he was only able to nd temporary work while going to school. “Some of these obligations included purchasing computer parts and peripherals, paper and ink, and anything involving transportation to and from school like gas, car insurance and maintenance.” Barahona, who is in his nal year of completing a Bachelor of Arts in Education at FSW, concluded that the scholarship played a major role in his success at the college and he was proud to be a part of a culture that cared for fellow comrades. Arlene M. Knox, senior director of Development and Planned Giving at the FSW Foundation, said the endowment is an exciting chance to continue supporting our veterans. “The annual scholarships have been so helpful for veteran-students at FSW and this endowment is not only ensuring that the giving continues, but that more of these students will be eligible in the future,” she said.

SOUTH FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICTWork is set to begin on two structures that will route water where it can be stored and cleaned as part of Governor Rick Scott’s Restoration Strategies plan to improve Everglades water quality. The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board this week awarded contracts to build a new gated structure and improve an existing structure to move water to and from the massive L-8 Flow Equalization Basin (FEB). This storage reservoir will capture peak stormwater ows so water managers can move water into a Stormwater Treatment Area (STA) at a steady rate to optimize its performance and achieve water quality improvement targets. “This is where a plan on paper becomes a working construction project on the ground,” said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Daniel O’Keefe. “Seeing earth movers and heavy equipment means we are closer to achieving this agency’s goal and the Governor’s vision of cleaner water for the Everglades.” With an approximately $4.4 million investment, Douglas N. Higgins, Inc., will construct a vertical-lift gated structure located in the L-8 Canal, about 2.6 miles north of State Road 80 in Palm Beach County. The fully automated, concrete reinforced structure has two basic functions:  When closed, it will allow water levels in a portion of the L-8 Canal to be raised and held without affecting water elevations in the remainder of the canal north of the structure.  Filling of the L-8 FEB by gravity and also pumping of water out of the L-8 FEB to nearby STA-1E and 1W without impacting ood control and water supply for L-8 Canal users. With an approximately $2.3 million investment, Murray Logan Construction, Inc., will upgrade the existing gated structure known as S-5AS near the C-51 Canal along State Road 80 west of Wellington. This upgrade will enable the structure to move water sent from the L-8 FEB to be treated in the STAs. Both of these structures are key to fully utilize the operation of the L-8 FEB. The reservoir is one of two Flow Equalization Basins under construction as part of the Restoration Strategies plan, providing 105,000 acre-feet of combined water storage for delivery of consistent ows needed to optimize performance of the region’s Stormwater Treatment Areas.L-8 Reservoir Quick Facts 950-acre former rock mine  Watertight geology allows for deep, belowground storage  Below-ground storage minimizes water loss through seepage and minimizes levee safety concerns  Initially approved in 2002, the project is capable of storing 15 billion gallons of water  This is enough to ll 34,000 football elds one foot deep  The reservoir will be able to accept up to 3,000 cubic feet per second of in ow from the L-8 Canal The L-8 Reservoir has already provided regional water resource bene ts, including:  Approximately 3.1 billion gallons of water from Tropical Storm Isaac were directed into the reservoir to help alleviate ooding from historic rainfall in Palm Beach County.  The City of West Palm Beach utilized more than 600 million gallons of water from the reservoir for water supply during the historic 2007 drought and again drew from the reservoir during a prolonged dry period in 2011.  During a 2011 pilot project, the District used small pumps to send fresh water from the reservoir north to bene t the Loxahatchee River.

9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 2, 2014 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe main goals of the Hendry-Glades Audubon, whose members live in Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee counties, are educational programming and promoting opportunities to view birds and wildlife species. On Monday, Sept. 8, Chris Schmiege of the Florida Forest Service presented a program on “Forest Recreation and Management on Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest.” Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest is 13,382 acre pristine slough located approximately 30 miles east of Fort Myers in southeastern Hendry and northeastern Collier counties. It provides a large roaming area of contiguous habitat for a variety of wildlife species. The forest offers a variety of recreational activities for visitors. Hendry-Glades Audubon promotes birding opportunities in inland Florida and leads bird watching trips for 1,000 visitors annually to (Stormwater Treatment Area 5), which is featured by Visit Florida as one of the top ve birding spots in Florida. Members and volunteers conduct bird counts and will participate in the annual Big “O” Birding Festival to be held March 11 to 15, 2015 at the Port LaBelle Inn.

Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have risen 1.1 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.28/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has increased 1.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.34/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 8.5 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 7.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 8.5 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 8.6 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “Hard to believe, but in a week that saw U.S. airstrikes on Iraq targeting ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq & Syria) terrorism, the resulting ‘spike’ in crude oil prices was barely a ripple,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Gregg Laskoski. “The benchmark West Texas Intermediate (WTI)ended the week just 2 dollars per barrel higher than it started.” “Undoubtedly, robust U.S. oil production this year has greatly reduced the potential volatility in global markets that such events would have otherwise induced,” he added.About GasBuddyGasBuddy operates FloridaStateGasPrices. com and over 250 similar websites that track gasoline prices at over 140,000 gasoline stations in the United States and Canada. In addition, GasBuddy offers a free smartphone app which has been downloaded over 25 million times to help motorists nd the lowest gasoline prices in their area. Gas Price Update

Owen Ave Clewiston, Fl. 33440 (863) 983-6181 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 2, 2014 10 BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsMany Clewiston residents went several hours without power last Thursday night after a man reportedly crashed into a utility pole on S. Francisco Avenue across from Clewiston High School. At around 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 25, Clewiston police of cers and emergency responders arrived at the scene of the accident where a vehicle had reportedly driven into a utility pole, knocking down it and the electricity for residents and businesses north of the high school. The 55-year-old driver reportedly told police he had suffered from a dizzy spell and blacked out before hitting the pole. The driver also allegedly admitted to having a few beers several hours before the accident, but passed sobriety tests, police said. Clewiston utilities staff worked for hours to replace the downed pole, reportedly getting the power back on for residents by about 11:30 p.m. that same night. Man Strikes Light Pole added to the increase in play, as well as the increase in revenue -which was up roughly $85,000 this scal year compared to last. The biggest revenue generator last year was the rst-ever J. Nelson Fairbanks Tournament, named after former U.S. Sugar president Nelson Fairbanks. The tournament brought in roughly $70,000 which was split equally between East Hendry County Recreation and the golf course. The second-annual tournament is scheduled for May 1, 2015, and of cials hope it will generate as much revenue for the course as it did last year. As revenues climbed with in uences from Rush, tournaments and increased ef ciency in how the course is operated, the city subsidized just under $226,000 in Fiscal Year 2014 as of Aug. 31 -the lowest subsidy since 2002. With such encouraging numbers, the city is again extending an offer to Rush to return as Clewiston's PGA Pro. Though his salary was debated by commissioners at their September meeting, all seemed to agree that Rush was an asset to the course last year. As the golf course numbers seem to rise for the better, of cials and golf course stakeholders are breathing a sigh of relief. "If we ever needed a golf course in this city, now is the time," said Perry, running down the list of potential future economic development initiatives, like BioNitrogen, Airglades International Airport and the controversial Sugar Hill Sector Plan. With the numbers sliding in the right direction, it seems the golf course will remain open for locals and out-of-towners to enjoy, as potential businesses check golf course off the list of positive selling points in the city of Clewiston and county of Hendry. GOLFContinued From Page 1 FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHThe Florida Department of Health urges all residents and visitors to consider the health risks of using illegal synthetic drugs. Taken to achieve the high associated with drugs such as marijuana, ecstasy, and cocaine, these synthetic substitutes are life-threatening and addictive. Within the past week, up to 30 individuals in Alachua County became severely ill after using such substances. "As we have seen recently in Gainesville, these illicit synthetic drugs are dangerous to Florida's children, adults, families and visitors," said Dr. John Armstrong, State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health. "These drugs destroy lives and threaten public health and safety." Synthetic marijuana, often known as "K2" or "Spice," is one of the substances whose popularity is "alarmingly high," according to the Of ce of National Drug Control Policy. Labels on Spice products often claim that they contain "natural" psycho-active material taken from a variety of plants. Spice products do contain dried plant material, but chemical analyses show their active ingredients are synthetic cannabinoid compounds. The adverse effects of synthetic marijuana use may include agitation, extreme nervousness, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, a racing heartbeat, elevated blood pressure, tremors and seizures, hallucinations and dilated pupils. Spice may also raise blood pressure and cause reduced blood supply to the heart. In a few cases, it has been associated with heart attacks. Regular users may experience withdrawal and addiction symptoms. Anyone experiencing an adverse reaction to an illicit synthetic substance should contact their local poison center as soon as possible by calling 1-800-222-1222. If there is a life-threatening situation call 911 or go to the nearest Emergency Room. Emphasizing the Health Risks of Using Illegal Synthetic DrugsANYONE EXPERIENCING AN ADVERSE REACTION TO AN ILLICIT SYNTHETIC SUBSTANCE SHOULD CONTACT THEIR LOCAL POISON CENTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE BY CALLING 1-800-222-1222.

11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 2, 2014 on charges of written threats to kill or do bodily injury. Before the arrest was made in the early morning hours of Tuesday, Sept. 23, school administrators had already planned to launch “Operation Hope” to delete the negative posts made on Yik Yak. Students gathered in the auditorium on Tuesday with cell phones in hand, charged with the task to “dislike” the negative posts and ll the message board with positive thoughts and comments. The threatening post, many students reportedly believed, was made in retaliation: according to student comments after the arrest, Castanon was apparently bullied, though administrators could not con rm those remarks. And while students seemed to stick up for Castanon after the news of his arrest was made public, the majority reportedly agreed that he should be punished for the threat he allegedly made. The sheriff’s of ce also said in a comment that any threat made against the school and its students would be taken seriously. Ironically -or perhaps fatefully -the threat was made the same day that sixth through ninth grade students attended an assembly featuring “Rachel’s Challenge,” an inspirational presentation based off of journals written by Rachel Joy Scott, one of the students killed in the shootings at Columbine High School in April 1999. “Rachel’s Challenge” encourages students to create a permanent positive culture in their schools by starting a chain reaction of kindness and compassion. “People will never know how far a little kindness can go,” Rachel wrote in her journal before her death. Rachel envisioned a world where one kind word would continue exponentially until it impacted each and every person. But the antithesis is also true, as shown by the words exchanged on Yik Yak two weekends ago. Hurtful words carry weight, and with that weight comes consequence. Though they don’t always lead to such a horrible incident as Columbine, those words are forever etched in the minds of those they target.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 2, 2014 18 whether any action needs to be taken and what are some of the alternatives we can look at that can be a good investment for the American taxpayer,” explained John H. Campbell, public affairs specialist for the Jacksonville District of the Army Corps of Engineers. To be sure, the Corps does not believe it will uncover risks of any considerable magnitude, according to Mr. Campbell. Rather, the work will zero in on other risks and features that could be implemented to reduce the risk of failure at the dike. The report could also conclude that there are areas that are in no need of rehabilitation of any kind. According to Mr. Campbell, Hurricane Katrina forced the “agency to look at risk differently than previously,” and this latest evaluation, titled the Herbert Hoover Dike Dam Safety Modi cation Study, conforms with the agency’s current protocols addressing future threat. So far, the agency has spent hundreds of millions of dollars targeting dike reaches that travel from Port Mayaca north of Pahokee to the Belle Glade area, having identi ed these zones as requiring the most critical attention. Work there has consisted of two major installations: a cutoff wall that slices down the middle of the levee to minimize the possibility of seepage of water from the lake, and reinforcing previous water control structures, or culverts, throughout this area. Being a study that can have potentially longlasting effects on the Glades area, Corps of cials are eager to get the public involved in devising the plan. As it moves forward, the Corps will offer events and invite the public to participate in a discussion about what the next step will be for the levee. The hope is that the lake will remain safe even in the case of stormy events, such as hurricanes. The Lake Okeeechobee levee remains one of the Corps’ most ambitious projects nationwide. “Most of our dams are in a river valley, and very small, certainly not 143 miles,” said Mr. Campbell. “We are trying to determine what is the level of safety that is provided by this, and how con dent we are if a potential event occurs.” DIKEContinued From Page 1 PHOTO/ ASHLEY SMITH BY ARNE DUNCAN Secretary of EducationThe King’s Academy’s Elementary School was designated as a National Blue Ribbon School today by U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan.

Vibrio vulni cus occurs naturally in warm coastal waters, particularly during the summer months, and has the potential to cause serious illness. Thoroughly cooking oysters, either by frying, stewing, or roasting can help to eliminate harmful bacteria and viruses in the meat. Consuming raw oysters that have undergone a post-harvest treatment process to eliminate the bacteria can also reduce the risk of illness. If you have wounds, cuts or scratches and wade in estuarine areas or seawater where the bacteria might be present, you can become ill. Symptoms of Vibrio vulni cus in wound infections typically include swelling, pain and redness at the wound site. Other symptoms of Vibrio vulni cus infection include: nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea, fever, chills, and the formation of blistering skin lesions. Individuals experiencing these symptoms should contact their healthcare provider immediately for diagnosis and treatment. Individuals with liver disease, including Hepatitis C and cirrhosis, are most at risk for developing serious illness from Vibrio vulni cus obtained from eating raw oysters. Others who should avoid consuming raw shell sh are those with hemochromatosis (iron overload), diabetes, cancer, stomach disorders or any illness or treatment that weakens the immune system. A total of 41 cases of Vibrio vulni cus were reported during 2013 and there have been six cases reported so far this year (four cases due to the infection of an open wound and two cases from consuming raw shell sh). Be Aware of Potential Bacteria in WatersIF YOU HAVE WOUNDS, CUTS OR SCRATCHES AND WADE IN ESTUARINE AREAS OR SEAWATER WHERE THE BACTERIA MIGHT BE PRESENT, YOU CAN BECOME ILL.

Florida SouthWestern State College Hosting Job Fair SOUTH FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICTWith the goal of expanding opportunities and partnerships to restore and protect a unique Florida waterway, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board approved a $500,000 investment in the Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program (IRL NEP). Earlier this month, the St. Johns River Water Management District Governing Board also approved a $500,000 investment in the program. These actions follow Governor Rick Scott’s direction to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to participate as well, by dedicating $250,000 a year in funding for the IRL NEP effort. “The Indian River Lagoon helps de ne the quality of life along a vast stretch of Florida’s east coast, including Martin and St. Lucie counties,” said SFWMD Governing Board Vice-Chair Kevin Powers, a long-time resident of Martin County. “We are proud to join Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in dedicating funds to protect this valuable resource.” SFWMD funding for the program comes a month after the Governing Board was briefed on proposed organizational changes designed to increase community participation and expand project opportunities. These enhancements include:  Reigniting community engagement,  Targeting the IRL for increased project funding at local, state and federal levels, and  Highlighting the importance of the IRL through outreach and education. The IRL NEP was established in 1990 through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s designation of the IRL as an “estuary of national signi cance.” The IRL NEP provides a non-regulatory, stakeholder-driven, collaborative approach to coastal watershed restoration and protection. The IRL is a diverse, shallow-water estuary stretching across 40 percent of Florida’s east coast from Ponce de Leon Inlet in Volusia County to the southern boundary of Martin County. The lagoon is a critical water body in the state and has experienced excess nutrient pollution in addition to excess freshwater ows for many decades. Widespread algal blooms appeared in the lagoon in 2011 followed by brown tide blooms in 2012 and 2013. Approximately 47,000 acres of seagrasses were lost, a reduction of about 60 percent of the lagoon’s total seagrass coverage. The lagoon supports a multitude of industries and activities, from shing and recreation to tourism and agriculture. A study concluded that the economic bene ts of the Indian River Lagoon totaled more than $3.7 billion in 2007 alone and accounts for 15,000 jobs.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 2, 2014 20 BY TONY YOUNG Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation CommissionFootball season is in full swing, and the 2014-15 hunting season is cranking up. Heck, in Zone A, they’re already into general gun season. But for the rest of us, I’d like to cover some things you should know regarding three hunting seasons that are just around the corner: muzzleloading gun, gray squirrel and the rst phase of dove. Immediately following the close of crossbow season in each zone, the muzzleloading gun season begins. Season dates on private lands run Nov. 22 to Dec. 5 in Zone B, Oct. 18 to 31 in Zone C and Dec. 6 to 12 in Zone D. During muzzleloading gun season, bows and crossbows are also legal methods of taking game on private lands, in addition to muzzleloaders. But on wildlife management areas (WMAs), only muzzleloaders may be used. The most common types of game to take during muzzleloader season are deer and wild hog. Regarding deer, only bucks that are legal to take in your area may be harvested, and the daily bag limit is two. You can hunt wild hogs yearround on private lands, and there are no bag or size limits. For hunting deer, muzzleloaders ring single bullets must be at least .40-caliber. Guns ring two or more balls must be 20-gauge or larger. The only muzzleloaders that can be used during muzzleloading gun season are those that are red by wheel lock, intlock, percussion cap or center re primer (including 209 primers). Muzzleloaders that can be loaded from the breech are not legal to use during this time. It’s also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during muzzleloading gun season. You may now take up to two a day on private lands, but there’s still a two-bird fall-season limit. You can’t hunt turkeys in Holmes County during the fall or winter. And on WMAs, you may still shoot only one turkey per day and antler/size restrictions on bucks/hogs can differ, so check the speci cs of the area before you hunt. Gray squirrel season on private lands starts Oct. 11 statewide and runs through March 1. There’s a daily bag limit of 12 gray squirrels, and shooting fox squirrels is against the law. Legal shooting hours are from 30 minutes before sunrise to 30 minutes after sunset. Except for turkeys, hunters may take resident game over feed, such as corn, but only on private lands. No baiting is allowed on WMAs. The rst phase of the mourning and whitewinged dove season began this year on Sept. 27 and ends Oct. 27 statewide. Shooting hours during this rst phase is noon to sunset, and there’s a 15-bird daily bag limit. The only rearm you’re allowed to use for hunting doves is a shotgun, but you can’t use one larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns must be plugged to a three-shell capacity (magazine and chamber combined). You may hunt doves over an agricultural eld, as long as the crop has been planted and manipulated under normal agricultural practices. However, it’s against the law to scatter agricultural products over an area for the purpose of baiting. Some things you can’t do while dove hunting include using ri es, pistols or crossbows; shooting from a moving vehicle; and herding or driving doves with a vehicle. In addition to a Florida hunting license, you’ll need a $5 muzzleloading gun permit to hunt during muzzleloader season. To hunt deer, you need a $5 deer permit, and if you’d like to take a fall turkey, you’ll need a $10 turkey permit ($125 for nonresidents). If you’re going to hunt doves, you’ll need a no-cost migratory bird permit, and if you hunt on a WMA, you also must have a management area permit, which costs $26.50. All are available at your local county tax collector’s of ce; through license agents; by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA; or by going online to License.MyFWC.com. So if you’re going after that monster buck during the muzzleloading gun season or smallgame hunting with friends and family, I hope I’ve helped explain some of the things you’ll need to know.
