I've been putting in for turned-in 2nd chance permits for 7 weeks now and finally drew two of them. A bowhunt permit and a family hunt permit and they're both up in the Panhandle where the big deer grow.  Very Happy  They are also both for either sex.  :rtup
The family hunt permit is over Thanksgiving weekend when my granddaughter is out of school so that makes it real nice. She likes to go hunting even when we strike out.

If you turn in your permit for a quota hunt (which costs nothing to begin with), you get back your preference points and your tag goes into a lottery-like draw for all who put in for it. But you have to do it at least 10 days before the hunt starts.

It's a good system now .. very fair. They used to have a 1st come, 1st served system and people with fast computers and special software got all the permits.

Now if you can't go on the hunt for some reason, someone else can go and you will have an additional preference point for next year's drawing. 3 preference points will get you any hunt in the state with more than 10 permits available. Florida has somewhere around 2 million acres of public land available for hunting.

Thanks for the good wishes. I hope they translate into a deer in the freezer ... or maybe two?

UPDATE: I drew another second-chance permit this morning. It's a bowhunt permit up close to one of the others. 
I only got one permit in the original draw due to a lack of preference points. Now I have 4. It keeps looking better and better.

With my luck I'll break a hip or worse and wind up in the hospital when all the hunting is happening.  Dunno

LOL just sit your ass down, drink a lot of water and wait it out until the season opens.
