Six million acres of hunting land

Florida has one of the largest systems of public hunting lands in the country at six million acres.

The FWC uses its scientific expertise to manage Florida’s wildlife resources to make sure conservation objectives are met and hunting opportunities are sustainable.

The Sunshine State offers a diversity of species to pursue from white-tailed deer, hogs, alligators, and turkeys to waterfowl, dove, bobwhite quail, and small game species such as gray squirrel, rabbits, and raccoons.

As long as there have been people, there has been hunting.

As settlers moved across this nation, they relied on bountiful game. Thanks to Teddy Roosevelt and hunters like him who started the conservation movement, we continue to be blessed with open spaces and bountiful wildlife.

You can continue this legacy in Florida by purchasing our “Deer Tag” license plate.

You help us conserve habitats, increase public hunting lands, and teach hunting safety to new generations.
