The window for hunting deer in Florida is based on the geographical zone of the state, weapons permitted and the type of deer. For example, for hunters in Marion County, which is in Zone C, general gun season in 2015-16 runs from Nov. 7, 2015 until Jan. 25, 2016.
Deer hunting season dates change from season to season. Hunters must check the Florida Fish and Wildlife website before hunting. Florida is divided into four zones. Once the zone is determined, the chart provided on the Florida Fish and Wildlife website outlines the permitted dates, weapons and type of deer a hunter may harvest. Hunters must follow all regulations and have current hunting licenses.
