                  Hunting in Florida

                  Public hunting opportunities

                  FWC cooperatively manages public hunting on nearly 6 million acres in our?WMA system. The FWC cannot give permission to hunt on other lands. Land that is not posted or fenced, including some waterbodies, may not be open to hunting. There is a directory of?outfitters and guides?to help you plan your hunt.

                  Use the WMA Finder to locate?wildlife management area (WMAs) hunting opportunities based on species, season, location and more.

                  Hunter Safety

                  Hunters born on or after June 1, 1975, and 16 years old, must pass a?hunter safety course?before purchasing a license. The?deferral from the hunter safety certification requirement allows certain hunters to purchase a hunting license without completing the course.
