*         Zone D has been divided by Interstate 10 into 2 deer management units, each with its own antler regulations and antlerless deer seasons. DMU-D1 is south of I-10, and all antlered deer there must have at least 2 points on one side to be legal to take. DMU-D2 is north of I-10, and all antlered deer there must have at least 3 points on one side OR have a main beam length of at least 10 inches to be legal to take. However, youth hunters (15 years old and younger) in both DMUs are exempt and may still take deer having at least one antler 5 or more inches in length.

**       No antlerless deer may be taken on that portion of the eastern Everglades south of Tamiami Trail (U.S. 41) and east of Everglades National Park; or in Collier County south of I-75 during Antlerless Deer Season.

***     In Holmes County, spring turkey season is limited to March 21 – April 5, and there is no fall harvest of turkeys allowed.

****  Only youths (15 years old and younger) will be allowed to harvest a turkey while supervised by an adult, 18 years old or older.
