Due to recent rainfall, which helped improve dry conditions, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has
rescinded an executive order issued in the spring that established
special regulations for Holey Land and Rotenberger wildlife
management areas (WMAs) and northern portions of the Everglades and
Francis S. Taylor WMA.
The order, which takes effect immediately, once again permits
normal public access in Holey Land and Rotenberger WMAs and
northern portions of the Everglades and Francis S. Taylor WMA.
These northern portions lie within Water Conservation Area 3A and
north of Alligator Alley (Interstate 75). Regulations specific to
management areas can be viewed at MyFWC.com/Hunting.
