Alligator Hunting Adventure

Hunting Regulations Icon Florida Hunting

Florida is the alligator hunting capital of the world!

Alligator hunting is a thrilling hunting adventure unlike any other you can imagine.

The alligator hunting season runs Aug. 15 – Nov. 1 each year. Approximately 6,000 alligator harvest permits are available annually. Each permit allows the harvest of two alligators.

Random drawings are held to distribute all available alligator harvest permits. Visit for details on how to apply. Applications can be submitted and fee payments made at any county tax collector’s office, license agent (retail outlet that sells hunting and fishing licenses) or online at There is no fee to apply for a permit, but each person awarded a permit must pay for an alligator trapping license and hide validation tags totaling $272 for residents and $1,022 for nonresidents. The cost for those with a Florida Resident Persons with Disabilities Hunting and Fishing License is $22. Applications for this license are available at The fee for additional alligator harvest permits, if available, is $62 regardless of residency or disability.

All persons seeking a harvest permit must be at least 18 years of age by Aug. 15, 2017. Exemptions for senior citizens do not apply to alligator trapping licenses. All sales are final; no refunds will be provided for any reason. Alligator harvest permits are not transferable. No other hunting licenses or FWC-issued permits are required. After payment is made, the permit and tags are mailed to the applicant within six weeks.

An alligator trapping agent license also is available for $52 and allows a person to assist a permitted trapper with taking alligators. Those with a Florida Resident Persons with Disabilities Hunting and Fishing License are exempt from paying the fee but still need the license to hunt alligators. An alligator trapping agent license is not required for youth under 16 years of age. Exemptions for senior citizens do not apply to alligator trapping agent licenses.
