What You Should Know About Deer Hunting in Florida

If you are interested in buying hunting land for sale in Florida, you should know that hunting season varies based on the type of animal you want to hunt. Deer is Florida’s most popular game species. A hunting license and permit are required when hunting deer by methods other than trapping.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) divides the state of Florida into four zones: Zone A, Zone B, Zone C, and Zone D. These zones determine the dates you are permitted to hunt deer as well as the type of weaponry that can be used. Weaponry such as bows, crossbows, and muzzleloaders require a license. This article will provide information for hunting antlered deer only. Please refer to the FWC website for specific guidelines for other animals (including antlerless deer).
