Making Your License Purchase Simple: Grab the Package Deal

Friday, July 8, 2016 - 11:15



Let’s set the scene: Your buddy says that he wants you to come fish with him this coming weekend and all you need is to make sure your fishing license is current. You haven’t been fishing since you were 15 at the family pond behind the house where you grew up. How do you even decide what license you need?  

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division has made purchasing the licenses you need even easier. Anglers, or hunters, looking for the licenses that allow them to pursue a specific activity can now choose a compiled license “package.” 

Here is how it works:

  1. Go to
  2. Create an Account or Log In to Your Account
  3. Check out the List of Available Packages, Including:
    • Avid Angler
    • Public Lands-Angler
    • Georgia Sportsman
    • Target Shooting
    • Deer/Turkey
  4. Click on the Package You Want to Add to Your Account
  5. Proceed to Checkout 

That is it! Once you are done, you will receive a confirmation email with a printable PDF of your license. Each year, you will get an email notification prior to license expiration date. If you renew before the license expires, you get a discount! You also can set your license package to auto-renew each year.
