Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Babcock Ranch that sits in Charlotte County in northwestern Florida has been a game ranch for the very rich looking to hunt big bucks and wild turkey. The state of Florida is buying the 91,000 acre spread for a cool $310 million.

Debate has already begun on public access and in particular hunting. For now, the ranch will continue to operate as it has while lawmakers discuss how to utilize the property the best for all Florida taxpayers. It will be at least two years before the public will have access to the land for hunting.
