Hunting License

We strongly recommend that you purchase your licenses and permits by visiting Hunting License and Permits website.

There are a variety of hunting licenses for different seasons, such as alligators, migratory game birds and waterfowl. Each one is subject to different hours and bag limits or quotas.

Recreational hunting licenses and permits can be bought yearly. Florida residents also have the option to buy five-year and lifetime licenses.

To get a hunting license, anyone born on or after June 1, 1975 must take the FWC Hunter Education Course.

A trapping license is required to sell furbearing animals (animals whose fur is valued commercially) or use live traps or snares to take furbearers for commercial purposes.

A dealer's license is required for anyone other than the trapper who participates in the buying and selling of furbearing animals for commercial purposes.

Licenses and permits are issued by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). They can be purchased online, by calling 1-888-486-8356, in person at our public service office or in sporting goods stores or hunting and fishing equipment retailers.

The State of Florida regulates hunting licenses with fees for licenses and permits set by the Florida legislature.
