The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has started issuing a license. A license for hunting bears costs $100 to the residents of Florida and $300 for people who do not reside in Florida. The permits will exercise during the last week of October 2015.
This hunting permit in Florida is issued to help the state manage the rise in bear population in Florida.
Permits Are Being Issued To Control The Bear Population-Hunting Permit Florida
Many applied for permits to face new challenges and also because they find the idea of hunting bears quite thrilling. The State of Florida is allowing the hunt of over 320 bears to stabilize their population.
The Wildlife Conservation Commission decided to start the hunt despite facing huge protests. To ensure the fulfillment of the objectives, they have promised to keep tallies during the hunting period. Approximately over 600 permits were sold out as of 3rd August 2015. The Commission will stop issuing them once they reach their target amount of licenses that need to be published.
