New Alligator Hunting Hours

Just received this e-mail. Thought I would pass it along. I am definitely in favor of the proposed times. Especially the extension in the morning hours.

Dear Alligator Management Stakeholder:

We recently sought your input regarding additional daylight alligator hunting hours under our Statewide Alligator Harvest Program. After carefully considering all of the input and assessing the pro’s and con’s of making any changes, the Commission was presented with a draft rule change that would provide four additional hours of daylight alligator hunting and set the legal hours from 5pm until 10am each day during the established harvest season. The Commission conceptually approved this draft rule at their February 2011 meeting, and they will be considering it for final adoption at their June 8-9 meeting in St. Augustine.

Please do not hesitate contacting me (harry.dutton@myfwc.com or 850.410.0656 x 17279) if you have any questions, concerns, or feedback about this draft rule change. Additional details of this endeavor, including summaries of the input received, can be found on the Alligator Management Program’s website.

Best Regards,
