The hunting season is a few months away, but those looking to bag an alligator in Florida can now start applying for permits.

Officials began accepting applications for the roughly 6,000 alligator harvest permits Monday morning. Florida residents pay $271.50 for an alligator trapping license and alligator harvest tags. Out-of-state hunters must pay $1,021.50.

Permit holders are allowed to harvest two alligators on a designated area.

The 11-week alligator hunting season runs from Aug. 15 through Nov. 1.
