Welcome to Tyndall AFB Outdoor Recreational Program

(Revised Reg as of 19 Sep 2016)

**Please see Regulations for detailed information on Hunting, Fishing, and General Recreation on Tyndall AFB**. 

All Hunters will need to obtain a "hard card" from Natural Resources before they can obtain a Hunt Block pass.**

ALL HUNTERS - Due to ongoing construction at Sabre Gate, the Hunting Check Station will be temporarily located at Bldg 5008 (Old Shoal Point Shopette), across Hwy 98 from Bonita Bay Outdoor Recreation Center, beginning 22 Oct.  This is the first building on the left as you come over DuPont Bridge onto Tyndall Air Force Base. 

Due to unforeseen site conditions, firewood permits will not be available this season.

**NOTE: If you have already purchased your permit, you will receive your hard card at the hunting check station when you check in for the first time to hunt.
