New rules to log and report harvested deer take effect beginning this hunting season, which starts Aug. 3 in Zone A. These requirements impact all deer hunters including: 1) hunters under 16 years of age, 2) resident hunters 65 years and older, 3) those who possess a Florida Resident Disabled Person’s Hunting and Fishing License, 4) military personnel home on leave for 30 days or less, and 5) those hunting on their homestead in their county of residence.

Hunters exempt from license requirements who do not have an FWC customer ID number (CID) can obtain one by going to and clicking on “Create Customer Account” before the hunting season begins.
