AIM FOR SUCCESS: INVEST IN GEORGIA'S FISH AND WILDLIFE - OPEN FORUMS SET TO DISCUSS POTENTIAL CHANGES TO HUNTING AND FISHING LICENSES
The natural resources and recreational opportunities found in Georgia are among the best in the nation and residents enjoy some of the lowest hunting and fishing license prices in the Southeast, as well as the country. In order to maintain programs and to meet the desires expressed by Georgia’s hunting and angling public, the Department of Natural Resources is proposing a hunting and fishing license restructure.
Georgia residents have not experienced a resident hunting and fishing license fee increase since 1992. The 1992 license fee increase was used to fund land acquisition efforts, as was the previous increase in 1987. The last hunting and fishing license fee increase made in support of agency operations occurred 34 years ago in 1981.
Since that time, DNR has greatly expanded its ownership and management of wildlife management areas (WMAs), public fishing areas (PFAs) and boating access sites while maintaining other key programs. Meanwhile, license revenues that fuel the agency’s core mission and function have remained stagnant for many years.
The Georgia DNR is requesting your input to develop a customer-supported fishing and hunting license restructure. Please plan to join us at one of the public meetings scheduled this June to learn more and share your thoughts. Meeting schedules, additional information and an online survey are available at: www.georgiawildlife.com/aimforsuccess.
We appreciate your support and look forward to your input!
