Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission rules

Post by Slowbra01 » Fri Sep 05, 2014 11:20 pm

I have a concern that i would like clarified by the experienced members of the board.

Myself and a few others are planning on going into a WMA to hunt for wild hogs. What i would like to know is, are we restricted to using firearms restricted to only 5 rounds? I ask this because that is what i hear from other people. I have even heard that we are limited to only 3 rounds and must use shotguns. Basically, i have firearms with higher capacity than 5rounds. I don't want to have to buy new equipment or modify them to limit them to 5 rounds.

I believe that when hunting for hogs, i can use for example, a standard capacity ak47 variant with 30 rounds because the only things i read in the rules regarding capacity is:

"Centerfire semi-automatic rifles having magazine capacities of more than five rounds when hunting deer"

As stated in the website......it specifically says "when hunting deer". Would i be wrong to assume that it would be ok to carry 30round magazines when hunting for hogs?

You need to check the rules for the specific WMA you want to go hunt in.

Varies from WMA to WMA

I believe most WMAs general regulations state 5 round max with center fire rifles.
