Our hearts go out to those affected by Hurricane Michael as the impacts of this storm continue to unfold. Our number one priority is the health and safety of residents and visitors. The FWC and its land management partners continue to assess and restore wildlife management areas (WMAs) in northwest Florida that are closed due to Hurricane Michael.
Check the closed status of our WMAs and other facilities before heading afield. As WMAs and facilities reopen, they will be removed from the list. This webpage will be updated as new information is available, so check back regularly. Be aware that in some cases, WMAs may be open but might have road closures within the area.
Some WMA closures will impact hunts (quota and non-quota). We recognize the importance of these public land opportunities and are working on options for impacted hunts, such as restoring preference points where applicable. The FWC will follow-up with additional details about impacted quota hunts.
