Waterfowl and other migratory game bird regulations

Migratory game bird and crow regulations are not included in this booklet. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is responsible for determining guidelines to take and possess migratory bird species. The USFWS had not finalized this season’s rules and regulations at the time this publication went to press. Migratory game bird seasons, bag limits and methods of taking can be obtained in two separate FWC brochures titled 2014–2015 Migratory Bird Regulations for Dove, Snipe, Woodcock, Rail, Moorhen, Crow and Early Waterfowl Seasons (available in mid-September) and 2014–2015 Migratory Game Bird Regulations for Waterfowl and Coot Seasons (available in mid-October).

Myers 239-561-8144; Groveland 352-429-1037; Tallahassee 850-402-0573; Miami 305-526-2610; or Vero Beach 772-562-3909 ext.4 or visit www.fws.gov/le/HuntFish/HuntFishInfo.htm.

Help us!

Please help protect the Florida panther.

Florida is the only state in the eastern United States that has an existing population of panthers. Many of the known remaining panthers reside on WMAs and other lands open to hunting. Special care and vigilance on the part of hunters is necessary to protect this rare and magnificent animal.

Killing free-roaming panthers in Florida is a felony punishable by imprisonment of up to five years and/or a $5,000 fine.

Regulations in red are new this year.
