TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is accepting applications for alligator hunting permits.

The gator hunt will run from Aug. 15 to Nov. 1. Each person awarded a permit will be allowed to take two alligators.

The agency has more than 5,000 permits available for the 11-week alligator season. Applicants must be at least 18 years old by opening day.

Alligator trapping licenses and two hide-validation tags cost $272 for Florida residents. For nonresidents the price is $1,022.

Anyone who doesn't want to hunt but would like to assist a friend can also pay $52 for an alligator trapping agent license.
