Feeling Lucky? Enter To Win A Python Hunt

The Burmese python is one of the most destructive invasive species affecting our sunshine state. In the arsenal of tactics against them, including python-sniffing dogs and deploying sentinel male snakes to locate breeding females, humane hunting and removal programs are critical. Finding the pythons to hunt is easier said than done, but thanks to our Great Florida Outdoors Raffle you and three friends could win the opportunity of a lifetime.

Burmese pythons have a lifespan of over 20 years and can grow up to 23 feet long. They can tip the scales at 200 pounds once they reach maturity. Despite their massive size, their spotted coloration perfectly blends in with the brush of the Everglades, similar to their native areas in Southeast Asia. Because they are constrictors, pythons will hide from their prey in order to ambush them. Without the expertise of an experienced python hunter able to navigate their environment, python hunts can often end fruitlessly.

If a python is on your grand slam list, or you simply want to help remove this invasive species from our beloved state, now is your chance. Among the 25 prizes in the Great Florida Outdoors Raffle is a guided python hunt for you and three of your adventure-seeking friends.

Get off the beaten path and hunt for destructive, invasive Burmese pythons in the woods and wetlands of south Florida with an expert. Weather conditions greatly affect your chance of success, so your flexibility is appreciated.

Check out our full range of prizes and enter to win here. Each entry supports important conservation projects benefiting species like Florida panthers, manatees, and corals as well as enhancing access to wild Florida.
