FWC Wants Public’s Input About More Daylight Alligator Hunting

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) wants to know what Floridians think about providing more daylight-hunting hours to alligator hunters. The public can comment via an online survey.

The FWC is exploring the idea of additional daylight-hunting hours for the state’s recreational alligator hunting season, which runs Aug. 15 – Nov. 1 each year.

Currently, legal hours for alligator hunting are from one hour before sunset to one hour after sunrise.

“We’ve received input from the alligator hunting community and are now looking for input from anyone who is interested in this issue,” said Harry Dutton, FWC alligator-management program coordinator.

People can provide input by going to MyFWC.com/Alligator. The Commission will take this input into consideration when deciding whether any change is warranted. Anyone with additional questions regarding this issue may call Dutton at 850-488-3831.

    I think FWC should mirror louisiana's alligator hunting season, they do not have the alligator problem we have because they have had a alligator harvest for a long time.
