I found out that the State of Florida has bought 3 islands in the river by my house. These were purchased in 2003 and since then, they have turned over the management of those islands to the Department of Parks and Recreation. I called them, and they have no information about any of the islands. After 45 minutes on the phone yesterday, I got ahold of a young lady who said she will see what she can find out for me regarding it. I want to hunt on it and camp on it. I figure if the state owns it and its not being used, I can treat if like public land, right?!? Maybe its wishful thinking. Man I hope so, cuz its a beautiful spot, and no one goes on it. I think I am going to check it out this weekend anyways, as apparently they know nothing about it. (atleast they didnt until I started calling about it) Anywho, wish me luck with all this. So far they have been extremely accomidating.
