Seniors


Florida residents age 65 or older are not required to purchase the following recreational license and permits:

  • Saltwater fishing, freshwater fishing and hunting licenses
  • Snook, lobster, deer, management area, muzzleloading, turkey, archery, crossbow, *Florida waterfowl, and migratory bird permits.

While a license is not required for resident seniors, they should keep proof of age and residency in their possession while participating in these activities.

A complimentary senior license certificate is available at the Tax Collector’s Office upon presenting a Florida Driver License or Identification Card to prove residency and age, but it is not necessary.

* The exemption does not apply for the federal duck stamp or tarpon tags.
