Florida Expands Gator-Hunting Hours and Equipment
Gargantuan gators beware! Florida’s 2022 hunting season started on Monday, 8/15 with brand new rules regarding hunting hours and acceptable equipment. Gator hunting is now allowed 24-hours a day, up from the 17-hours that used to primarily target night and early mornings. As far as equipment is concerned, pneumatic air-bows attached to a restraining line can now be used, much to the delight of mobility challenged and younger hunters, for whom such tools can be far easier to use. For more information, check out the updated rules on the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation website here.
