"Varmint", "Pest", either case, the state wants hunters to bag as many as possible. I lived in Florida for almost 30 years. Grew up in the swamps of South Florida. We hunted from late October to New Years virtually non stop. You were allowed one a day. Today, the state regulates deer season by a series of controlled hunts that can last from a few days to a few weeks. And other areas can last a bit longer. But most all bag limits in those areas are one deer per day.
