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.

Tips for Using WMA Brochures

WMA regulations brochures are ONLY available at MyFWC.com and the Fish/Hunt FL app. Before heading afield, print, take a screenshot or download the WMA regulations brochure and map to a mobile device so you can access them without an internet connection.

View Open/Closed Status of WMAs

Before going afield, we recommend you review the open/closed status of WMAs you’re interested in. We continue to update this page with information about WMA openings/closures, including details about roads, entrances and more.
