Hunting Permits

FL Deer 512w

• Also, you can purchase the Permit anywhere you purchase a state hunt/fishing license, just ask for code 7800.


Hunting is an important wildlife management tool that we recognize as a healthy, traditional outdoor pastime, deeply rooted in America’s heritage. Hunting can instill a unique understanding and appreciation of wildlife, their behavior, and their habitat needs. As practiced at the Lower Suwannee, hunting, and fishing do not pose a threat to wildlife populations, and in some instances are necessary for sound wildlife management. For example, because their natural predators like the Florida panther are no longer here, but in south Florida, deer populations will often grow too large for the refuge habitat to support.

Our Hunting program can promote understanding and appreciation of natural resources and their management on Refuge lands.
