Georgia Game Check: Reporting Turkey/Deer Harvest

All turkey and deer hunters are required to have a Harvest Record for the current season.

This includes:

  • hunters under 16 years of age
  • landowners
  • honorary, lifetime and sportsman's license holders
  • hunters not required to purchase any license or a big game license
  • hunters whose big game license has not expired

Additionally, all harvest must be reported within 72 hours through Georgia Game Check

Ways to Save Money on License Purchases

Early Renewal Discount

An easy way to save! Most annual hunting and fishing licenses offer an early renewal option with a savings of $2.50 when a same privilege license is purchased before expiration of the old license. Same privilege licenses renewed early "stack" and add a full additional license term to the end of the expiring license.

Be sure to enter your email address when buying or reprinting a license. We will email a renewal reminder before your annual license expires. Renew early and save $2.50 on your annual license!
