    I'm sure this came up back when Florida was deciding to do this, but I'm from Mass. and we have year long season on Snapping Turtles. The circumstances are different, they are not invasive. I don't rightfully know why they have a year long season. Their season is, quite literally, Jan.1-Dec.31. However, you still need a license to take them, you can't just arbitrarily kill them.

    Why doesn't Florida just add the snakes to their abstracts and have a year long season on them. That way, there still has to be a license to hunt and they get the revenue. Being invasive, they won't unblanance the eco-system if they wipe them out. Who knows, maybe they're disussing this now.
