    I have never hunted in Georgia...am a north Florida lifelong resident of 75 years, FL hunter eduction certified and FL hunter education instructor, former ATF Gun Dealer, hunted all my life...

    What licenses do I need to do a 3-day hunt on private land in Georgia?

    Licenses and fees please...

    Thanks,

    Hello Al.
    As a non resident you can buy a 3 days apprentice hunting license, which does not require the hunting education course and the final in person review. However I don't think it allows hunting big game. For that you would need to buy a big game license and I think that in order to do that you would need the hunter education course. You can call to verify.

    Information and prices can be found here:

    I just noticed this. If you were borne before 1961 you don't need the hunter education.

    Does it have to be a hunter education class from GA or will any state education class work?

    Any state would work:

    (but in his case he would not even need to provide a certificate number since he is exempted)

    expensive!

    Al, it looks like the State of Georgia really wants to stick it to out-of-state hunters. The fees are shocking, compared to in-state residents' fees.

    I hope you enjoy the hunt and get a big trophy and some good eating meat too.

    Since I'm a Georgia resident, it looks like my prices for hunting private land (but not in a preserve) would be:

    $10 for a general hunting license.
    $ 9 more for the big game license and some "deer harvest record" tags.
