Staying on St. George Island presents an exceptional opportunity for coastal duck hunting enthusiasts. The Apalachee Bay region, located nearby, is renowned for hosting a significant population of diving ducks during the winter months. This area in North Florida is particularly celebrated for its redheads, which are considered one of the best in the country. Apart from redheads, the bay also features abundant populations of other diver duck species, such as bluebills and buffleheads. Duck hunters can also encounter occasional appearances of canvasbacks, pintails, teal, scoters, wigeons, gadwalls, mergansers, wood ducks, ring-necked ducks, spoonbills, ruddy ducks, and goldeneyes. Coastal duck hunting from St. George Island also provides a quieter and more secluded hunting environment compared to other regions. While diver ducks often come with lower bag limits compared to puddle ducks, the Gulf Coast’s less crowded conditions make it an appealing destination for waterfowl hunters. The tranquil setting, coupled with the opportunity to pursue divers in open water, offers a unique and fulfilling experience for hunters looking to escape the hustle and bustle and immerse themselves in the natural beauty of Florida’s Gulf Coast.
