Reply To: Hunting with Airguns – Add your State
For some reason Crosman’s Florida regs are extremely inaccurate. It doesn’t acknowledge most of the species you can hunt in Florida and adds a group you cannot hunt.
The correct Florida species that are legal to take with an airgun are as follows:
Eurasian Collared Dove
Marsh Rabbit (excluding the marsh rabbits in the Keys, which are protected)
Skunk (both striped and spotted)
Any other non-protected exotic or introduced species
“Game Birds” are NOT legal to hunt in Florida with an airgun, in spite of Crosman’s chart that says otherwise.
Link to Florida’s hunting regs:
Of importance to airgun hunters is the definitions in 68A-1 where the definition of a “gun” includes air guns,68A-12.002 that allows airguns to be used specifically for the game species of gray squirrels and rabbits, and 68A-24.002 that allows “guns” to be used to take furbearers, which by the provided definition includes airguns.

This is how the FWC interprets the regs. Type in “air gun” under the “Ask FWC Tab” and you’ll see that they confirm what I’ve stated above.
