A long-established recreational activity in the area, hunters were instrumental in protecting this corner of remote, wild Florida. Hunting activities continue today and include seasons for archery, muzzle loading and general gun. Typical game species are white-tailed deer, turkey and hogs. Alligator hunting is not allowed within the national preserve.
Hunting within the Preserve is managed cooperatively between the National Park Service and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
