Q: Can I carry a concealed firearm, if I have the proper permit, on wildlife management areas? What about during non-hunting periods or during archery and muzzleloading gun seasons?
A: If you hold a valid concealed weapons permit, you may carry a handgun (as long as it remains concealed), during any time of the year on all wildlife management areas except for Camp Blanding, Eglin, Tyndall Air Force Base, Avon Park, Big Cypress, St. Marks, St. Vincent Island, Lower Suwannee, Lake Woodruff, Merritt Island, and A.R.M. Loxahatchee.
But, during hunting periods when modern firearms are allowed, anyone may carry a handgun (as long as it is not concealed) on ANY wildlife management area (including the 11 listed above).
