Gulf Breeze, Fla – Gulf Islands National Seashore has extended the deadline to turn in Waterfowl Hunting Harvest Reports from the 2017-18 season to April 2, 2018. These reports are normally due by February 15, however only 10% of reports have been returned at this time. The national seashore is extending the deadline this year only, and will enforce the permit requirement that prohibits hunters, who do not turn in their harvest reports, from obtaining a 2018-19 season hunting permit.
Harvest reports help the national seashore track the impacts of permitted hunting within the boundaries of the national seashore. Hunters may return their hardcopy harvest reports to the park’s headquarters at 1801 Gulf Breeze Parkway, Gulf Breeze, Florida 32563 Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or electronically at any time by emailing their report to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In accordance with the Superintendent’s Compendium waterfowl hunting is permitted in the national seashore during the corresponding state hunting season, but is limited to two marine areas in Florida. These areas are identified on the waterfowl hunting permit. No other hunting is permitted within the boundary of Gulf Islands National Seashore.
