Everglades Pythons win. Get your alligator hunting permit here.

You big bunch of sissy Rambo's!

Do you know how many pythons were successfully hunted this past year?
You couldn't catch a python if it slithered out your big wazoo!
All mouth and no python boots for you!

Well my chaps, 
for I know what you wearing,
Redemption time is neigh!

The alligator hunting season runs 11 consecutive weeks from Aug. 15 through Nov. 1.
Approximately 6,000 alligator harvest permits will be available.
Winners will be selected in a random drawing.
All those seeking a harvest permit must be at least 18 years old by Aug. 15. 

A permit allows the harvest of two alligators on a designated area.
Successful applicants must pay for an alligator trapping license and two alligator harvest tags, or provide proof of a valid alligator trapping license (must be valid through Nov. 1) and pay the fee for two harvest tags. No other hunting licenses are required. 

The cost for a resident alligator trapping license and alligator harvest tags is $271.50, and nonresidents pay $1,021.50. 
The cost for each additional alligator hunting permit is $61.50, regardless of residency. 

The FWC offers a no-cost, three-hour training and orientation program in July and August at various locations throughout the state. Permit holders will receive, by mail, permit packages listing dates and locations.

Lets see if you mighty hunters can pull this hunt off?
I need new gator boots!
