The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service established Feb. 5-6 as Youth Waterfowl Hunting Days. These select days are a great opportunity to get young people outdoors and to introduce them to the excitement of waterfowl hunting.
The statewide, two-day season allows children younger than 16
years old – with adult supervision – to hunt waterfowl,
coots and common moorhens. Supervisors (18 years or older)
must be present and may assist young hunters, but state
regulations prohibit the supervisors from hunting. Hunters
younger than 16 years of age do not need licenses, permits or
federal duck stamps.
All regulations and bag limits for hunting waterfowl apply to
this two-day season. Hunting regulations are available online
at MyFWC.com/Hunting or in the FWC’s waterfowl and coot seasons
brochure, available at county tax collectors’ offices.
