Migratory Bird Stamp

If you are exempt from needing a Florida hunting license, either through age,military service etc., is it necessary to have a migratory bird stamp for dove season?

    on the FWC website -Exemptions-you need only a separate federal duck stamp- if duck hunting-but the florida migratory permit and fl duck stamp are not a separate entity if you are over 65. unless I read wrong

    Nobody knows. I called 2 separate FWC offices today and got two different answers. I just decided to screw it and not go. Law says in conjunction with license, but I don't need a license. Also says in conjunction with waterfowl stamp. The two FWC people I talked with were as confused as the little boy who dropped his chewing gum in the chicken yard. Apparently, permit is free, but just more bureaucratic crap to hire several more warm bodies who fill in at least 3 spots on the EEOC sheet. If I sound bitter, it is only because I am.
