hunting alligator

If you have an alligator trapping license/harvest permit, get ready for the upcoming hunt by checking out the FWC’s new and free alligator harvest training and orientation video course. This 22-minute training opportunity isn’t required, but it’s an easy way for hunters to get up to speed on rules and regulations, equipment and methods, safety, and more. The virtual training, which is convenient and social distancing friendly, replaces the in-person classes offered in years past.

The Guide to Alligator Hunting in Florida is another way you can learn important information about taking part in Florida’s statewide alligator harvest.

Visit for links to other valuable resources such as alligator harvest unit maps and lists of guides and outfitters, meat processors and hide buyers, equipment vendors, public boat ramps and more. If you have questions, please contact us at

Thank you for your support of the Statewide Alligator Harvest Program!
