Yes; any Florida resident is entitled to a license without a fee provided they are certified by one of the following to be totally and permanently disabled:
You must print the Disabled Resident’s Hunting/Fishing License Application and mail or fax it to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. You may also apply online at www.MyFWC.com/ada. Upon approval of your application, you will be issued a 5-year license (2-year if certified by Social Security Administration), which must be printed from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission website at www.MyFWC.com/ada. (Note: This does not cover a Federal Duck Stamp, which must be purchased at the Post Office or online at www.MyFWC.com, if desired.)
