FWC gives OK to all-day gator hunting

by carlislewillard

The recovery of alligators in Florida is a real conservation success story – so much so the state feels comfortable with opening up alligator hunting to 24 hours a day – and includes methods that could make hunting gators easier.

The new rule opens up alligator hunting between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m., which Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) staff say provides more opportunities for youth and senior hunters, and reduces the possible time crunch some people face between harvesting and landing their alligators.

The other change will allow the use of tethered spears shot from pressurized airguns.
