Florida: New method for distributing morning standby at STAs


Duck hunting

This year, waterfowl hunting opportunities created by permit holders who don’t show up for morning stormwater treatment area (STA) hunts will be distributed differently. Based on input from stakeholders, FWC staff, and land management partners, we will be using an online random draw system instead of on-site lotteries to distribute morning no-show waterfowl hunting opportunities.

This online random draw, which will be administered through GoOutdoorsFlorida.com, is expected to minimize safety hazards due to overcrowding, improve hunter check-in management, more fairly distribute the no-show opportunity, and enhance the overall quality of the experience.
