Duette Preserve's Hunt Brochure and Application is now available for 2016-2017. If you would like to hunt at Duette, the schedule is included in the brochure. To qualify for a hunt, please fill out the application and return it to the Parks and Natural Resources Department.

2016 - 2017 Hunt Program

In addition to the Duette Preserve regulations listed in the Hunt Brochure, all laws and regulations of the State of Florida relating to wildlife shall apply to the Hunt Program. Duette Preserve regulations are more restrictive than the state regulations. Hunting or the taking of wildlife shall be allowed only during the state open seasons and preserve scheduled hunt weekends, and only in the manner set forth in the Hunt Brochure. Each participant must provide a Hunter Safety Certificate. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Persons utilizing Duette Preserve are required to have appropriate licenses and permits.

  • All hunters are required to attend a scheduled orientation meeting before receiving permits.
  • All hunters are required to provide proof of completed Hunter's Education Course before receiving permits. Other State Hunter's Safety Course Certificates will be honored.
  • If you do not fulfill these requirements, you will not be permitted to hunt and any fee paid will not be refunded.

The times were established using the United States Naval Observatory Sunrise and Sunset calculations.

 

We use the times displayed on our Verizon cellular telephones. You should use the time displayed on your cellular telephone to determine the gate closing as well as the start and end of Quiet Time. If you do not have a cellular telephone you can contact us to synchronize your watch to our telephones.

 

1) The Quiet Time for the Y Hunt (Youth Hunt) is 1 hour. This only applies during the Y Hunt.

2) After the gate is closed no one will be allowed to enter the property until Quiet Time is ended.

3) The only movement allowed during the Quiet Time is to trail game that has been shot.
Please be courteous to those hunting around you when trailing game.
