I’ve read over and over again on some older threads that you cannot hunt within any of the state’s water management districts and wanted to clear up some misconceptions without replying to an old thread. I worked at SJRWMD for 2 years before I got tired of the low pay. 1) The entire state is in a WMD. From the sand dunes inwards, you are in their jurisdiction. But this just applies to water conservation, stormwater, taxes, etc. Nothing regarding fossil hunting, just the actions of landowners and business. 2) They do not own navigable waterways, and in no way regulate what you can do on them, as an individual. 3) They do own lots of land, you cannot dig on them as you cannot dig on ANY public land. The short and sweet. The WMD’s do not affect our fossil hunting in public waterway, regardless of what any power tripping FWC officer may believe.
