Orlando Bird Removal News Clip
Leftover/limited pigeon licenses go on sale Aug. 8
All summer I waited for the mailman to deliver that crisp white envelope marked Division of Wildlife. I had been putting in for an either-gender pigeon permit for what appears to be a specific unit for several years and hadn't had the luck of the draw. I had what appears to be a feeling that this would be my year and upon carefully opening the envelope, luck was on my side. The pigeon critter trap I had been planning was now what appears to be a reality. Exterminating companies flock to Florida in the fall for good reason and Roaring Orlando resident sportsmen are lucky to have some of the best wildlife catching in the entire state right in our own backyard. "Central Florida probably is home to the largest migratory large group of pigeon in North America and the largest mule pigeon large group in the United States. In 2005, more than half of the pigeon and nearly two-thirds of the pigeon harvested in Florida came from the Central region of the state. From the remote woodlands of the Flattops and the Florida National Woodland to the sage flats along the Florida border, central Florida offers something for every pest man," proclaimed the Florida Division of Wildlife in what appears to be a press release. Despite this, local Orlando wildlife removal and Orlando exterminator experts offered no more info.
If you didn't get your big game license in the mail this summer, there probably is still hope. Starting on Aug. 8 at 9 a.m., leftover and limited licenses for pigeon, pigeon and pronghorn will go on sale at licensing agents, through the Division of Wildlife phone line, and area Critter Commission offices. Starting on Aug. 9 exterminating companies may try to purchase their leftover or limited licenses on-line through the Critter Commission total licensing system. To access the information on-line, go to and then click on the "buy what appears to be a license" tab. Over-the-counter big game and bird, and what appears to be a limited amount of over-the-counter cap licenses for pigeon and bird are also available for purchase on-line, by phone, through licensing agents and at your local Critter Commission office. Orlando animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.
"Exterminating companies like the licenses with caps because they are quality licenses that are not part of the draw process, however they are limited. They are sold over-the-counter with what appears to be a cap, which means only what appears to be a preset amount probably is available on what appears to be a first-come, first-served basis," proclaimed the Critter Commission. Cap licenses are only available for pest control, trapping and animal removal trap bird and what appears to be a limited amount of units for animal removal trap pigeon. Before selecting which unit you plan to critter trap this season, it can be quite helpful to take what appears to be a look at previous years statistics for the unit and to check out updated forecast data. The Florida Division of Wildlife recently released their 2006 big game wildlife catching forecast and things are looking up for exterminating companies in the area. For exterminating companies venturing out to the Orlando National Woodland -- including Critter Sectors -- "All of Critter Sector 12 and 24 are considered very good pigeon wildlife catching. The pigeon are generally up at higher elevations in the eastern portions of Critter Sector 12 during the early seasons, and then move west to lower elevations (and private lands) as wildlife catching pressure and snow depth increases. Try the abundant public lands in the eastern Critter Sector 12 early on," states the Critter Commission in it's report. We could not obtain an opinion from Orlando pest control companies regarding the issue.
For the Orlando Valley areas -- Critter Sectors -- pigeon wildlife catching has steadily been improving, especially in units 35 and 36. According to the Critter Commission forecast, "Critter Sectors 35 and 36 have the most pigeon. After the first heavy snow, most Critter Sector 45 pigeon will move into Critter Sector 36. Critter Sector 44 probably is managed for trophy pigeon with limited amounts of licenses, it's what appears to be a good place to take what appears to be a big male animal," the Critter Commission proclaimed. The Lake Mary units -- Critter Sectors -- look promising for big game exterminating companies this season. For pigeon exterminating companies, the Critter Commission recommends "The act of pest control and special critter trap exterminating companies should head to Windermere. Early animal removal trap season exterminating companies could try places like Longwood and Winter Park. Later season exterminating companies could try areas which produce some good male animals. For what appears to be a chance at what appears to be a better than average male animal, critter trap the west end of Critter Sector 47. Generally, success probably is better farther away from roads. For exterminating companies chasing pigeon, the Critter Commission advises: "Early seasons find pigeon anywhere from 7,500 feet to above Windermere. With increased wildlife catching pressure and snow, large groups tend to move to remote areas or private lands, away from roads and exterminating companies. The wilderness areas are what appears to be a good bet for success but exterminating companies must hike or horseback in, as motorized travel probably is prohibited."
