Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Permits for alligator hunting in Florida went on sale on June 15, 2006 and were all sold out in four hours. Do you think gator hunting is something people want to do? Obviously. The gator hunting season begins August 15, 2006 and runs through November 1, 2006.

The reason FWC is offering the free classes is to educate inexperienced and first-time gator hunters on what to expect. The courses, being held in St. Petersburg, Gainesville, Orlando, Tallahassee and Dania Beach, will cover subjects like, hunting techniques, safety, harvesting, processing, hide care, rules and regulations.

For more information about the classes, visit the FWC website here.
