Default Simple Question fo a newbie in Hills. FL

Hi guys, awesome forum here!! Real people it seems, not snooty forum brats/know it alls like in others! I'm new to hunting in Florida (Hillsborough) and was interested in Migratory bird hunting.

With that being said.... comes my probably simpleton question....

What does General Gun season mean? For Example, the Chassahowitzka Brochure says that General Gun Season is November 1-December 28. They do not have MIgratory Bird Seasons on there, just to see the Mig. Bird Pamphlet (Which hasn't come out yet). And, to shake up my confusion, it says Quota Permit (if hunting first 9 days)? Does this mean on November 10th I won't need a permit? I can just walk in and shoot some birds? And as many as I want?

Where in Upper Hillsborough Brochure, it states the Mig. Bird Season in Small Game Season with dates.

Thanks in advance for any help on this folks, they make this stuf crazy complicated for us new guys! I need to make a spreadsheet just to figure out what day I can chase a duck!

The answer to your first question is yes, you can just walk up if after November 10th. I will warn you that if you start shooting birds while people are hunting deer you will not make a lot of friends. Bird hunting can be done in STA's or on Dove or Quail quota hunts which you may need to apply for. You may also shoot birds durring small game season in some management areas. You need to go to MyFWC.com to check what animals are legal in the area durring the season you wish to hunt. I would also check which type of weapon you are allowed to use. You don't want to go to an archery only area to shoot ducks.
