4 things to know if you’re hunting a wildlife management area

Staff Report
FWC

This season, check stations will be open at those WMAs that have one. However, normal check station procedures may be modified because of COVID-19. Also, when visiting WMAs and check stations, please follow current Florida Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control CDC) public safety recommendations.

You can search for public hunting opportunities by location, season, species, and type of hunt using WMA Finder. If you know which WMA regulations brochure you want to review, search by "specific area" and use the drop-down menu to navigate directly to that area’s brochure. WMA regulations brochures and maps are only available online and access to WMA regulations brochures is through the WMA Finder only. It's important to review the WMA regulations brochure before you head afield because season dates and other rules may vary.

Want to take the WMA regulations brochures and area maps with you, even to places internet access isn’t available? Try taking a screenshot with your smartphone, downloading the files to your mobile device or printing them.

Before visiting a wildlife management area (WMA), always check the WMA's open/closed status.
