Florida Modifies hog-dog hunts on public Lands

FWC adds youth turkey hunts, modifies hog-dog hunts on public lands

Thursday, February 24, 2011

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) passed new rules that affect hunting on many of the state's wildlife management areas. Most of these new rules apply to specific WMAs; however, two of them affect public hunting on a more statewide scale.

One such statewide rule removes the one-gun restriction on all hog quota hunts using dogs. Currently, these "hog-dog" quota hunts allow only one hunter (permit-holder), one gun, one assistant and up to three dogs. An additional person also may join the hunting party, if a guest permit is obtained in that person's name.

But starting with the 2011-12 hunting season, each participant will be allowed to hunt with a gun.

Details about these new rules are available online at www.MyFWC.com/Commission , linked from the Feb. 23-24 meeting agenda.
