The efforts of hunters as conservationists over the past 100 years have restored Florida's game populations and enhanced the habitat of numerous wildlife species. No other group has come close to sportsmen in contributing the volunteer hours and funding necessary to make such an impact on wildlife conservation.

Hunting is an integral part of the fabric of Florida's economy and cultural heritage and it is also an important wildlife management tool.

  • Buy a hunting license.

  • Excise taxes on guns, ammunition and outdoor equipment.

  • Do not litter and clean up any litter that you see.

  • Report Violations.
