Turkey hunters, a new rule takes effect this fall that requires all hunters (even those exempt from license requirements)  to log and report wild turkeys they harvest. This new rule applies to spring and fall wild turkey seasons. 

The FWC also wants to remind all deer hunters (even those exempt from license requirements) they must log and report harvested deer.

Upon harvesting a deer or wild turkey, all hunters must: a) log their harvest prior to moving it from the point where they located it and b) report it within 24 hours of being harvested.

Hunters can log and report their harvest using the FWC’s Fish|Hunt Florida App or at Hunters can also log their harvest using a paper harvest log and  report via the phone by calling 888-486-8356 (888-HUNT-FLORIDA).

We appreciate your support of conservation by adhering to harvest reporting requirements. Harvest reporting can help foster bag limit compliance and gives FWC biologists another valuable source of harvest information to help them manage deer and wild turkey populations to continue providing sustainable hunting opportunities.
