New Florida license plate lets drivers show support for hunting




florida_wildlife_tagThe Fish and Wildlife Foundation of Florida (FWFF) is pleased to announce that its new vanity license plate to support hunting in Florida has just arrived and is now available for sale at all tax collector’s offices and their agents in Florida.

“Hunting has a long tradition in Florida. There are over 160,000 licensed resident hunters in Florida. Hunters have always been conservation minded. They really care about our great outdoors heritage,” said FWFF Chairman Rodney Barreto.

The Foundation created a special Florida citizen review panel to help make sure the grants support improvements for public hunting across the state, today and tomorrow.

The Fish and Wildlife Foundation of Florida Deer Tag has already funded 16 grants for $78,372., including:

  • $2,500 to the FWC for the Game Cleaning Stations on Tate’s Hell Wildlife Management Area
  • $2,500 to Future of Hunting in Florida for the Future of Hunting in Florida Youth Hunt Camp.

“We ask all avid hunters to do their part and buy our new IHUNT plate. Help us make sure that hunting always has a future in Florida,” said Chairman Barreto. “Florida is like no other place on earth, and working together we can keep it that way.”
