New License Changes Create Better Opportunities for YOU!

For the first time since 1992, hunting and fishing license prices have increased in Georgia. This change allows DNR to recapture our buying power and catch up with inflation, and in turn improve opportunity and access for Georgians. Here’s a few of the ways we plan to give back to our sportsman:

  • Improve access for recreation – better roads, boat ramps, piers, etc.
  • Improve opportunity – more technical assistance, education programs and habitat management
  • Increase the number of Game Wardens to protect our resources

New License Types Support Wildlife

The purchase of a hunting or fishing license helps make the management of wildlife and public hunting lands possible through the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s Wildlife Restoration Program. Now, seniors and young hunters can purchase a license that provides this support:

Youth Sportsman’s License: This $15 multi-year license is for resident hunters between the ages of 12-15. The license is good through their 17th birthday, giving them a full year sportsman’s license after reaching age 16 (the first year they are required to be licensed). Hunter education is required when the hunter turns age 16. This license includes hunting, big game and fishing. Note: youth hunters under age 16 still need adult supervision on public land.

Senior Sportsman’s or Senior Lifetime License: Beginning July 1, seniors (age 65+ born on or after July 1, 1952) will need to purchase a license. Options are an annual ($4) or lifetime senior hunting license ($35), annual ($4) or lifetime senior fishing license ($35), annual ($7) or lifetime senior sportsman’s license ($70).

Thank you for supporting wildlife and public lands with your license purchases! For more information, visit our website: georgiawildlife.com/licenses-permits-passes
