If you’d like to learn about the FWC’s proposed rule amendments to the statewide alligator harvest program, then Tuesday, January 4th’s Microsoft Teams webinar from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m will be what you’re looking for.

The webinar will feature a short presentation about proposed rules that would increase hunting hours during the statewide alligator harvest from the current 17 hours a day to 24 hours a day on most areas and allow the use of precharged pneumatic air guns propelling only arrows attached to a restraining line as a legal method of take.

If approved, 24-hour hunting and use of airbows would be effective for the 2022 statewide alligator harvest season. Those attending the webinar will also have an opportunity to ask questions.

Online Commenting Tool

If you’re unable to attend the online webinars or want to learn more and provide input, you can do that via the online commenting tool. In addition to the proposed rule changes, the FWC is also seeking feedback via the same online commenting tool on concepts we may consider in the future such as:

  • Using a preference point system for awarding permits in the Phase 1 random drawing
  • Replacing county-wide alligator hunting permits with region-wide permits (a grouping of counties).
