Mobility-Impaired Hunt Application Process Postponed
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) announced the third application phase of its mobility-impaired quota hunts has been postponed due to programming problems with the Total Licensing System (TLS). The Phase III application process was due to start Aug. 27, but a glitch in the system required it to be delayed.
The programming has since been corrected, and the new start time for the Phase III application process will be 10 a.m. EDT on Sept. 6.
“Given the circumstance, the FWC felt this was the best method of distributing these permits. Quota permits are issued on a first-come, first-served basis in Phase III, and it is only fair that all qualified hunters start the application process at the same time,” said Eddie White, quota hunt coordinator for the Office of Licensing and Permitting.
Mobility-impaired hunters, who have already been issued a permit, may apply for additional permits at that same time.
The FWC offers 19 of these hunts on eight wildlife management areas, exclusively to hunters that are certified mobility-impaired. Applications for these hunts are mailed out each year to all hunters who possess a Mobility-Impaired Certification Card.
