GA hunters need new harvest record before deer season begins

From Georgia Department of Natural Resources

-- All Georgia deer hunters, including big game license holders, honorary and lifetime license holders, hunters under 16 years of age and landowners, must obtain a new deer harvest record for the upcoming season.

Deer harvest records are required for any person hunting deer, regardless of age, are free of charge and available at any retail license agent or online at

A deer harvest record is good only for a single hunting season because the bag limit is a season limit. Hunters must complete a deer harvest record before moving a deer from the site of a kill, except when participating in a wildlife management area or national wildlife refuge hunt that requires hunters to check out harvested deer. Hunters may not possess or use multiple big game licenses or deer harvest records and should keep harvest records with hunting licenses.

Hunters to police themselves by calling the anonymous Turn In Poachers line (800)241-4113 to report individuals who violate the laws.
