Update About Check Stations

Check stations are open. When visiting management areas and check stations, we ask that you please follow current Florida Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) public safety recommendations:

  • Social distancing: maintain a distance of 6 feet from others when possible and avoid handshakes and large gatherings.
  • Masks: cover your mouth and nose with a cloth face covering when around others, such as when approaching and interacting with the check station operator.
  • Hand washing: wash hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer.
  • Stay home if sick.
  • Follow any local county ordinances.

Thank you for your assistance in stopping the spread of COVID-19 and allowing our check stations to remain open so we can provide you with a high-quality hunting experience.

About Florida WMA Hunting Opportunities

Florida has one of the largest wildlife management area (WMA) systems in the country at nearly 6 million acres. FWC is the lead manager or landowner on over 1.4 million acres and works in partnership with other governmental or private landowners on another 4.5 million acres. Florida’s WMAs offer a wide range of hunting opportunities including quota/limited entry hunts, special opportunity hunts, and public hunting areas where people can walk on to hunt.

To hunt on wildlife management areas (WMAs), you must possess a management area permit and a hunting license, (and often other permits depending on species and season), unless exempt.
