Southside Hunting Club

Florida hunting club

We only allow 18 members to be part of the most elite Florida hunting club in the state. Annual memberships include hunting on all 7000 acres year round. Members are allowed to shoot 3 mature Whitetail Bucks yearly for family memberships, and 4 mature Whitetail Bucks a year for Family memberships plus 1 buck. All members are allowed to shoot Trophy Boar Hogs and Trophy Osceola Turkey in their respective seasons. We have over 30 food plots planted yearly and over 30 tree stands and feeders that are maintained year round for members use. Hunting the property is on a first come first serve basis, where the member comes and pens up their location he or she will be hunting for that morning or afternoon. When the member gets back in from hunting he or she is required to take down their pen until they go hunting the next morning or afternoon. Once you are a member you have the option to buy into the Blackbuck and Axis herd roaming the 7,000 acres to be able to hunt. Our membership for our south side is $10,000 so call today to see if we have a spot open for you.
