Georgia Freshwater Fishing
Working With Wildlife For You
On behalf of the Department of Natural Resources, I want to thank all of the sportsmen who support wildlife and wildlife conservation in Georgia. Our state has some of the most diverse natural resources in the country and I want to thank you for your part in guarding these resources. Hunting and fishing is a valued part of the cultural heritage of our state and these are traditions that I’m committed to protecting.
Fishing supports conservation and sportsmen are the original conservationists. Your license purchases, which fund wildlife conservation efforts, make you a partner in all the efforts of this agency. You contribute through the purchase of boat fuel and fishing equipment as a percentage of those sales are dedicated to wildlife conservation. I’m proud to say that Georgia has approximately 1 million acres of land available for public hunting and angling opportunities through our wildlife management areas and other public lands. We could not have gotten here without your help and support.
How else can you support wildlife? Give someone special a lifetime hunting and fishing license as a gift. Put a wildlife license plate on your car. Donate to the Wildlife Conservation Fund Tax Check-off on your state income tax form. Or, volunteer your time – there are great conservation groups with which to be involved. Thank you for your continued support, and now let’s get out there and enjoy all that Georgia has to offer!
Commissioner, Georgia Department of Natural Resources
