License Requirements

Getting your licenses and permits

Hunting for Turkey

The first step in hunting turkeys is making sure you have the proper license and permits. Unless exempt, to hunt turkeys in Florida you must have a Florida hunting license and turkey permit, and if you are hunting on a wildlife management area (WMA), you also need a management area permit. These can be purchased at, by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA (486-8356), tax collector offices and license agents, including most retail outlets that sell hunting and fishing supplies.
