Is it legal to shoot iguanas in public areas with a crossbow? I've just been using a standard leatherman knife but my family is asking if I'd want anything for Christmas. I don't really have any hobbies apart from killing iguanas, so I thought a crossbow could make things more efficient. Thoughts?

>Green iguanas are not protected in Florida except by anti-cruelty laws and can be humanely killed on private property year-round with landowner permission.

Just be careful out in public. Depending on the county and their mood, cops may bust your for launching a projectile or something weapon related.

But this is Florida, so if you really want to hunt them...

>Members of the public may also remove and kill iguanas from 22 FWC managed public lands without a license or permit under Executive Order 17-11.

Reading that, it says you're not allowed to use firearms or traps, but you're probably safe with a crossbow.

Consider hunting Burmese pythons and maybe walking catfish. You can earn $8.10 per hour hunting the pythons and then you can eat the catfish.
