How to Access WMA Brochures

Update about how to access Wildlife Management Area (WMA) regulations brochures

Starting this spring, the FWC will begin phasing out the mass printing of its WMA regulations summary brochures and instead promote their availability via download at MyFWC.com and the Fish/Hunt FL app. This phase-out will begin with FWC discontinuing the printing and distribution of its 2017-2018 WMA brochures to Florida’s tax collector offices. Printed copies of 2017-2018 WMA brochures will still be provided to FWC’s regional and field offices and WMA cooperator offices they are normally available at. However, 2018-2019 WMA brochures will only be available at MyFWC.com and the Fish/Hunt FL app.

 Why is the printing of WMA regulations brochures being phased out?

The FWC is always looking for ways to reduce waste and improve efficiency. As part of that effort, the FWC will begin phasing out the mass printing of its WMA regulations brochures this spring. Instead FWC will promote their availability via download at MyFWC.com and the Fish/Hunt FL app.

When and how will the phasing out of printed WMA regulations brochures occur?

We will begin the process of phasing out the mass printing of WMA regulations brochures this spring with the FWC discontinuing the printing and distribution of 2017-2018 WMA brochures to Florida’s tax collector offices.

Printed copies of 2017-2018 WMA brochures will still be provided to FWC’s regional and field offices and WMA cooperator offices they are normally available at.

For the 2018-2019 hunting season, WMA regulations brochures will not be printed. They will only be available at MyFWC.com and the Fish/Hunt FL app.

Where can we find WMA regulations brochures?

Printed copies of 2017-2018 WMA brochures will still be provided to FWC’s regional and field offices and WMA cooperator offices they are normally available at.  

For the 2018-2019 hunting season, WMA brochures will only be available at MyFWC.com and the Fish/Hunt FL app.

What are the benefits of phasing out the printing of the WMA regulations brochures?

Implementing this change enables FWC to reduce waste and make more funds available for priority fish and wildlife conservation projects and outdoor education.

In addition, it will allow the FWC to make real time updates to ensure stakeholders have access to the most current WMA regulations information.

The vast majority of Floridians use the Internet, making electronic delivery of WMA brochures a responsible option while providing the convenience of immediate access to all WMA regulations brochures.

Where is the Fish/Hunt FL app available?

Download the Fish|Hunt App on Apple or Android smart phones or tablets from the App Store and Google Play.

What about the Florida Hunting Regulations, Freshwater Fishing Regulations and Saltwater Recreational Fishing Regulations?
