Disabled Person Hunting and Fishing License

A disabled person who is a resident of the State of Florida may obtain an application for a Resident Disability Hunting and Fishing License from the Tax Collector's office.
To qualify for a Resident Disability Hunting and Fishing License, a disabled person must present proof of residency and a certification of total and permanent disability by the U.S. Veterans Administration (VA), any branch of the armed services or a Notice of Award from the Social Security Administration (SSA) for Supplemental Security Income or Supplemental Security Disability Income Benefits. Application for disability licenses may be downloaded, printed and mailed into FWC. Click here for the disability application form.
A Resident Disability Hunting and Fishing License authorizes the holder to take or attempt to take or possess freshwater fish, marine fish and game consistent with State and Federal regulations.
Holders of a Disability License are exempt from permit requirements, including the no-cost migratory bird permit and from making application for most quota hunt permits to hunt on a wildlife management area.
A Resident Disability Hunting and Fishing License does not allow the holder those privileges found in the Commercial Fishing License, Commercial or State Trapping License, Antlerless Deer Permits or the Federal Waterfowl stamp. A disabled person wishing to participate in these activities must also acquire the required permits for each of these activities.
Expiration of Resident Disability Hunting and Fishing License is determined by the type of certification submitted by the Tax Collector's office to the Florida Fish & Wildlife Conservation Commission.
Beginning July 18, 2012 FWC has a new online disability application website that allows you to submit your application for disabled permits electronically. Click on the PermitMe! link to be taken to the site.


Senior Citizen Hunting and Fishing License

Senior citizen hunting and fishing licenses are optional for non-commercial purposes and do not include the Federal Duck Stamp. Residents of the State of Florida age 65 or older may carry proof of their age and residency, such as a driver license or voter registration card in lieu of a Complimentary License.
