Senior Citizen Hunting and Fishing License

It is not necessary for Florida senior residents to purchase a hunting and/or fishing license.  Residents 65 years of age or older may possess either a Resident Senior Citizen Hunting and Fishing Certificate or proof of age and residency (A driver license is sufficient).

Update - Florida and Georgia are no longer reciprocal:

An agreement between Florida and Georgia that allowed senior citizens from either state to hunt and fish in fresh water without licenses in both states ended June 30, 2008.

Georgia officials announced in May 2007 that economic realities have rendered the reciprocal agreement no longer feasible for hunting, and that it would come off the books.  The nature of the agreement required that Florida follow suit.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) voted to end the reciprocal agreement concerning freshwater fishing, as well.  The agreement never has exempted nonresident seniors of either state from saltwater fishing license requirements.
