From the Georgia Department of Natural Resources
-- The Wildlife Resources Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources is reminding all deer hunters, including big game license holders, honorary and lifetime license holders, hunters under 16 years of age and landowners, to 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 www.gohuntgeorgia.com or at any retail license agent.
A deer harvest record is good only for a single hunting season because the bag limit is a season limit, according to John W. Bowers, assistant chief of Game Management for the Wildlife Resources Division.
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.
