Hunting Licenses and Permits

Hunting Licenses are regulated by the State of Florida, with fees for licenses and permits set by the State Legislature.

Licenses and permits are issued by the State of Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC).

They can be purchased online at the FWC site, and are also available at the Tax Collector's Office as well as subagents (for example, a sporting goods store or a retailer selling hunting and fishing equipment).

  • Recreational hunting licenses and permits may be purchased on an annual basis. Florida residents also have the option to purchase five-year and lifetime licenses.
  • There are a variety of hunting licenses for different seasons (for example, alligator, migratory game birds and waterfowls). Each one is subject to different hours and bag limits or quotas.
  • To obtain a hunting license, anyone born on or after June 1, 1975 must take the FWC Hunter Education Course.
  • To sell furbearing animals or use live traps or snares to take furbearers for commercial purposes, a Trapping License is required. A Dealer's License is required for any persons other than the trapper who engages in the buying and selling of furbearing animals for commercial purposes.

Visit the FWC's Hunting page for more information, including information on license and permit fees.
