Florida residents and visitors are required, unless otherwise exempt, to hold a license for hunting and fishing in the state of Florida. While participating in a hunting or fishing activity, hunters and anglers must carry proof of identification, licenses, permits, or certification credentials.

The Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) authorizes the sale of hunting and fishing licenses and permits through FWC appointed agents:

  • Florida Tax Collector Office
  • Bait & Tackle Shops
  • Department Stores
  • Sporting Goods Stores
  • Marine Store/Dealer/Marinas
  • Online or by calling 888.486.8356 or 888.347.4356 (additional fees/restrictions may apply)

A hunting or fishing license authorizes hunters and anglers to attempt to take or possess fish or wildlife game in compliance with state and federal regulations and the rules of the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission.

Licenses may be purchased singularly or in combination packages.
