Hunting & Freshwater Fishing

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission regulate hunting and freshwater fishing in the State of Florida. This agency sets and enforces policies and initiates environmental conservation programs to protect Florida wildlife. In addition, this state office determines license fees, which are set by the Florida Legislature.

Hunting licenses are annual permits valid 12 months from the date of issuance. A five day hunting and fishing license, and a lifetime hunting license is also available to Florida residents. Non-residents can apply for a 10 day hunting permit.

Freshwater fishing licenses are valid 12 months from the date of issuance. A five-year freshwater fishing license and a lifetime freshwater fishing license are also available to Florida residents. Non-residents can apply for a seven-day permit.

The "Cane Pole Law" allows Florida residents to fish in the county of his/her residency with live or natural bait, using poles or hand lines that are not equipped with a reel, for non-commercial purposes; however a valid Fishing License Stamp is required to fish by any method in a Fish Management area. No license stamp is required to fish in a private fishing pond.
