Flooding has closed three wildlife management areas (WMAs) and cancelled the spring turkey hunts previously scheduled there for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The Division of Forestry closed the Twin Rivers WMA in Madison, Hamilton and Suwannee counties. The Suwannee River Water Management District closed the Holton Creek WMA in Hamilton County. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) closed the Suwannee Ridge WMA, also in Hamilton County. All three locations were closed due to the flooding in the area.
"We expect the areas to be closed at least through the weekend and probably longer," said Roland Garcia, regional director at the FWC's North Central Region office in Lake City. "Unfortunately, because of the lack of access to the areas, the spring turkey hunts, scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, have been cancelled."
The spring turkey hunts will not be rescheduled, according to Garcia.
