From small-game to big-game hunting, the National Forests in Florida offer something for everyone. 

Hunters must following rules and regulations set by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). In addition, each national forest has different rules as outlined below.

Apalachicola National Forest

Most of the Apalachicola is a Florida wildlife management area (WMA). Hunting seasons, permits, limits and other rules are posted on the FWC website at Apalachicola WMA Brochure Detail.

Ocala National Forest

The FWC also manages the Ocala WMA. Please remember to get a valid hunting license and follow all regulations outlined by the FWC.

Hunt camps are available only during hunting season and require a special permit. Farles Lake, Clay Lake and South Tower Hunt Camps are closed.

Osceola National Forest

Hunting is very popular in the Osceola National Forest. General gun season runs from mid-November to early January. During that time all camping is restricted to designated hunt camps and Ocean Pond Campground. Dates are updated every year in the FWC WMA brochure for the Osceola National Forest.
