Ga. Hunting Seasons and Regulations Guide Now Available

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources says that the 2014-2015 Georgia Hunting Seasons and Regulations Guide is now available.

According to the DNR, the guide provides important information on season dates, bag limits, hunting licenses, wildlife management areas, quota hunts, youth opportunities among other things.

The DNR says major changes to hunting regulations this year include the availability of a non-resident infant lifetime license for infants under the age of 2.

Also, the DNR says full-time active duty military personnel and their dependents are now eligible to purchase hunting and fishing licenses at resident fee prices, though some exclusions apply.

In addition, the DNR reminds hunters that suppressed firearms are now legal for hunting on private land with landowner permission.

Game Management Section Chief John Bowers says that hunters eagerly anticipate this publication each year in order to review their favorite hunting areas, seasons or activities, and the agency encourages all hunters to review the publication each year to stay informed on any changes in hunting regulations and opportunities.
