Half Moon WMA is a 9,554-acre composite of wetlands, hammocks, flatwoods, and improved pasture. The Withlacoochee River borders the area to the west and Ventura Ranch borders Half Moon on the east. Mill Creek and Gum Slough, scenic spring-fed tributaries of the Withlacoochee, traverse the area. Half Moon’s scrubby flatwoods are home to a small population of threatened Florida scrub-jays.
