Default Sounds like gun shots

Does anyone know what either gunshots or some other noise are? I live near 44 by Brownwood and it sounds like it's coming from the east. I heard it at 8:45 pm. It sounds like people are shooting - but it's dark.
Any clue?

I hear gun shots at times here in Lynnhaven and expect they are from a farm nearby. Usually when coyotes are out and about.

Call community watch and the local police.

We live in Osceola Hills and very often we hear shooting across the canal to the east of us, which is near the Pennbrooke area. We have heard there is a shooting range over there.

I believe farmers can protect their livestock if not shooting over public roads of any kind and staying on their private property.

Coyotes in Florida: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) | FWC

Quote:
Coyotes may be taken as a furbearer year-round on private property with landowner permission by rifle, shotgun, pistol, muzzleloader, air gun, cross bow, or bow. However, it is important to check with the local police department or sheriff’s office about the legality of discharging a firearm in certain areas. It is also important to note that coyotes are established throughout Florida and new coyotes can move into areas where others have been removed.
I am using coyotes but other critters would be a threat.

Lots of feral hogs in the area, causing a lot of damage on farmland.
Maybe a hog shoot.

You can hear automatic weapons fire coming from the Coleman prison firing range.

They are still using firing squads?

Clueless if one would suspect unlawful activity a call should be made to 911.

In Osceola Hills, we often hear gunfire in the evening but today we have been hearing it in the morning. Some of it sounds like automatic weapons.

From mid August through January in Florida there are several windows of open hunting season for various types of waterfowl and migratory birds. Our Villages home is fairly close to the edge of the bubble and during those times we often hear what appears to be shotgun fire, typically either early or late in the day. Hopefully no birdshot will pop the bubble!

I may have heard the same during my morning walk near Lake Deaton. Some enthusiastic shooting but not automatic fire.

Ok folks...heres the story.

I live in Osceola too.

The guy to the east has a range on the property. He is a retired gun dealer. He does shoot automatic rifles...usually in the morning or evening.

People living to the east of me called the police and requested that they get back to them

The deputy did. He has his own range, with a berm, deputy said its safe and he can shoot on his own property

Actually, we can shoot here in the villages...youd have to be nuts to do it
