Attention Customers: License Requirements Changed July 1, 2017

  • The WMA License is no longer available or required. A basic hunting or fishing privilege that allows hunting or fishing on state lands is all that is needed to be present on designated state WMAs, state PFAs, and state shooting ranges. (Big game, waterfowl, trout, or other licenses may also be additionally needed, depending on activity).
  • GORP Licenses are no longer available. A license that includes the privilege to hunt or fish on state lands is all that is needed to shoot on state shooting ranges, or be on state WRD lands. All persons 16 and older on designated state WRD lands must have an individual basic hunting or fishing privilege. An individual WRD Lands Pass is optionally available for those that have objections to purchasing hunting or fishing licenses, but the cost for the Lands Pass is higher to make up for loss of federal funds that come with hunting or fishing licenses. Most persons not hunting or not fishing will still want the basic hunting or fishing license; the least costly basic fishing or hunting license for short term or annual use will suffice for basic access.
  • The Deer Dog License is no longer available and is not needed as an additional separate license. Just a hunting privilege with big game and a harvest record allows deer dog hunting on DNR permitted deer dog properties.
  • The HIP license and the GA Waterfowl Conservation License are no longer available. These were combined into the new Georgia Migratory Bird Stamp. This stamp is always additionally needed for anyone 16 and older to hunt migratory birds including dove and waterfowl, and cost $5. There is a free version for any hunter with a valid Sportsman's License, Optional Multi-Year Youth Sportsman's License, Honorary License or Lifetime License (the system will offer the free rather than paid versions if you hold one of these lcienses). There is a free Resident Landowner Migratory Bird Stamp for residents who hunt migratory birds only on their own property and don’t already have or need a regular Georgia Migratory Bird Stamp.
  • The Alligator License is no longer available and is not needed as an additional separate license to hunt alligator. Just a basic hunting privilege allows alligator hunting as long as accompanied by a quota alligator harvest permit holder. The quota harvest permit holder must purchase or obtain their alligator harvest permit.
  • Senior Licenses are no longer free for those 65+ years of age with date of birth on or after July 1, 1952. There are lifetime options for these persons: senior lifetime sportsman’s = $70, senior lifetime fishing only = $35, and senior lifetime hunting only = $35. There is a senior sportsman’s annual option for these customers = $7. Senior Licenses are still free for those born before July 1, 1952. The system will show appropriate senior 65+ licenses for each person.
  • There are new license types available for residents and nonresidents.

License Duration

  • There are one day licenses available that can be extended up to 11 consecutive days total. As persons approach the maximum number of days, they may find that equivalent annual licenses are equal or less cost.
  • There are annual licenses available, and multiples of these annual licenses can be “stacked” to create licenses of any year duration.
  • There are lifetime licenses available to seniors online, and other lifetime licenses for non-seniors that must be obtained by DNR paper application or in person at some DNR offices (see WRD web site for details). Discounted lifetime licenses are available for resident veterans and resident active duty military.
