SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. –-(Ammoland.com)- The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division reminds 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,” said 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.

“We appreciate the honesty, cooperation and support from each hunter in respecting wildlife and the conservation tradition by following game and fish laws. We encourage hunters to police themselves by using the anonymous Turn In Poachers (TIP) line (1-800-241-4113) to turn in individuals who violate these laws,” said Bowers.

    This is baffling. If you have the sportsman's combo, do you still need a harvest record? If so, where can you get it? I've been thru the DNR reprint license section a dozen times and it doesn't work.

    Georgia issues a Deer Harvest record. You do not get kill tags anymore.
