Application for Passage Peregrine Falcon Quota Permit

Application for Passage Peregrine Falcon Quota Permit

Through the framework established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Atlantic Flyway Council, Georgia has been allotted the take of a single passage peregrine falcon for falconry purposes in 2015.

Conditional permits for peregrine falcon capture and possession will be issued to qualified applicants by random drawing. As soon as any of the conditional permit holders legally secures a bird, the remaining permit holders will be notified that their conditional permits are no longer valid.

To qualify, an applicant must be a licensed Master Falconer or a licensed General Falconer with at least five years of licensed falconry experience. Trapping is allowed only in Chatham, Bryan, Liberty, McIntosh, Glynn and Camden counties, and only from Sept. 20 through Oct. 20, 2015.
