By Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission // January 29, 2021
No license or permit is required of the youth or supervising adult
(FWC) – While Jan. 31 is the last day of the regular duck season, we wanted to make you aware of upcoming special waterfowl hunts for the military and veterans, and youth.
Waterfowl hunting weekend for military and veterans
Veterans and active duty service members have a special weekend – Feb. 6-7 – to hunt waterfowl in Florida.
This new opportunity allows only veterans and members of the Armed Forces on active duty, including members of the National Guard and Reserves, to hunt ducks, geese, mergansers, coots, and common gallinules (moorhens).
During Veterans and Military Waterfowl Hunting Days, bag and possession limits for each species are the same as the regular season.
Youth Waterfowl Hunting Day
The second Youth Waterfowl Hunting Day of the 2020-21 season is Saturday, Feb. 13.
Youth 15-years-old and younger are allowed to hunt ducks, light geese, Canada geese, mergansers, coots, and common moorhens while supervised by a non-hunting adult 18-years-old or older.
No license or permit is required of the youth or supervising adult. Learn more about FWC’s Youth Waterfowl Hunting Day.
