The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will accept applications May 1 - June 15 for 2005-06 special-opportunity hunts.

Applying for these unique hunts now is automated through FWC’s Total Licensing System. To apply for these permits, visit any license agent or tax collector’s office or submit an application online at MyFWC.com. Applications will be available beginning April 20 from FWC regional offices and online at MyFWC.com.

Special-opportunity hunts offer hunters vast areas, abundant game, low hunter quotas and excellent chances to bag quality deer, hogs and released quail on select wildlife management areas throughout Florida.

Based on past years, demand for these hunts is greater than the number of available slots, so a random drawing is conducted to select hunters. Hunters can improve their chances of being selected by submitting as many non-refundable $5 applications as they want. The cost of the hunts for selected applicants ranges from $50 to $175.
