Florida Black Bear General Hunting FAQs
Is it legal to hunt black bears in Florida?
Florida does not have an open regulated bear hunting season at this time. The first regulated bear hunting season started in 1936 in Florida, and continued in parts of the state until 1994. A limited bear hunting season was re-opened in four areas in October 2015, but has remained closed since that time. In December 2019, FWC Commissioners approved an updated Florida Black Bear Management Plan, which included a new section outlining population management options, including regulated hunting. At that time, the FWC Commissioners indicated hunting was a valid tool and could be re-opened in the future.
