The Florida Wildlife & Conservation Commission (FWC) issues lifetime licenses to Florida residents for hunting, freshwater fishing and saltwater fishing. If you have a child relative, friend or loved one who is a Florida resident and avid angler and/or hunter, the gift of this license is a way of celebrating one's love of the outdoors and the enjoyment of the outdoors across the generations. It's also a powerful way to help ensure the conservation of nature for future generations.
Funds generated from the sale of these licenses are invested in an endowment to support the long-term conservation of Florida's wildlife and fisheries resources. The interest from the trust fund is spent on fish and wildlife conservation programs, while the principal is held in perpetuity to ensure future funding for such programs.
Prices are pro-rated depending upon the sportsman's age and whether you're buying the license that includes freshwater fishing, saltwater fishing, hunting or all of the above. FWC also makes these licenses super-affordable gifts to young hunters/anglers in the hope that they will remain lifelong, committed outdoorsmen and stewards of the environment. That's why they set up the system so that each lifetime license will remain valid for use in Florida even if one moves out of state.
