The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has started issuing a license for hunting bears for $100 to the residents of Florida and $300 for people who do not reside in Florida. The permits will be applicable during the last week of October 2015.
This hunting permit 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 200 bears in order to stabilize their population.
The Wildlife Conservation Commission decided to start the hunt despite facing huge protests and they have promised to keep tallies during the hunting period to ensure the proper objectives are achieved without putting their lives at risk. As of 3rd August 2015, over 600 permits have been sold and the Commission will stop issuing them once they reach their target amount of licenses that need to be issued.
