LOCHLOOSA WMA APPLICATIONS AVAILABLE ONLINE
Sept. 9, 2003
The 2003-2004 Quota Hunt Applications for the Lochloosa Wildlife Management Area (WMA) are now available.
Lochloosa WMA is a dog-hunt area with two quotas for the general gun season. Applicants can chose either Nov. 8-30 or Dec. 1 -- Jan. 4. A total of 50 permits will be issued for each period.
Quota hunt permits will be issued based on a random selection of applications received from Sept. 15 through 4:30 p.m. Sept. 26.
Anyone possessing a preference card from this summer's normal random drawings will not be able to use it in this special drawing. However, next year, Lochloosa will again re-enter the normal random drawing, and preference cards will again be able to be used.
Anyone who has already received a quota permit from the normal random drawing this summer will not jeopardize that permit if he/she applies for a Lochloosa permit in the special drawing.
There are no exemptions. Those normally exempted -- residents aged 65 or older, residents certified totally and permanently disabled, residents in the armed forces stationed out of state and home on leave for 30 days or less or children under the age of 16 -- are not exempt and must apply for and receive a quota hunt permit to participate in the Lochloosa general gun season.
Applicants may apply for and receive only one Lochloosa Quota Hunt permit per person. Applicants who apply more than once will have their applications rejected.
Persons interested in applying for a quota hunt application can obtain an application online at http://www.wildflorida.org/hunting/quota_hunt/Lochloosa03.pdf. Applications are also available at county tax collectors officers and regional Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) offices.
