The agency has more than 5,000 permits available for the 11-week alligator season. Applicants must be at least 18 years old by opening day.
Alligator trapping licenses and two hide-validation tags cost $272 for Florida residents. For nonresidents the price is $1,022.
Anyone who doesn't want to hunt but would like to assist a friend can also pay $52 for an alligator trapping agent license.
Applications can be submitted any tax collector’s office, license agent or on the Internet here.
