DEFINITION OF RESIDENT:
A resident, for the purposes of obtaining a hunting or fishing license is:
Any person who has resided in this state for six (6) continuous months prior to the issuance of a license and who has an intent to continue to reside in Florida and claim Florida as their primary residence
Any member of the United States Armed Forces who is stationed in this state (includes spouse and dependent children residing in household)
PROOFS OF RESIDENCY:
Any one of the following may be used as proof of residency:
Florida Driver’s License (“Florida Only” or Florida ID cards not acceptable)
Military orders showing that applicant is stationed in Florida
Florida Homestead Exemption
Statement from Landlord
Or both of the following:
Florida voter’s registration card
Florida Motor Vehicle Registration
The Oath of Residency signed by the applicant when privileges are issued does not preclude a law enforcement officer from requesting residency credentials be evidenced again. Failure to do so may result in criminal prosecutions.
Aliens who have filed domicile with the Clerk of the Circuit Court are not considered a resident. The Department of Legal Affairs no longer allows an alien to establish domicile as acceptable proof of residency. All aliens are considered non-resident.
Note: Non-resident hunting and fishing licenses may be purchased by anyone
