Georgians can enter to win lifetime hunting, fishing license

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) - Georgians have a chance to win a lifetime hunting and fishing license from the Georgia Natural Resources Foundation.

Residents can fill out an entry form by visiting the Wildlife Resources Division Facebook page or the Georgia Natural Resources Foundation page. The deadline to enter in Aug. 21.

Participants must meet the requirements to qualify for a youth or adult lifetime license, which can be found at www.georgiawildlife.com. Winners will be selected and notified Aug. 22, and announced to the public via the Georgia Natural Resources Foundation's Facebook page soon after.

"This has become a popular contest among hunters and anglers in Georgia" said Natural Resources Foundation Chairman Glen Wilkins. "What other contest offers the chance at a lifetime of hunting, fishing and access to any wildlife management area, public fishing area and DNR shooting range without ever having to purchase a hunting or fishing license again?"

Adult sportsman licenses are for ages 16-64; the youth licenses are for 15 and younger. Lifetime licenses are full privilege sportsman's licenses, and include all state paid recreational hunting and fishing privileges, and access to Wildlife Resources Division properties.

Georgia residents 65 and older are already eligible for free lifetime sportsman licenses. Residents younger than 65 who don't win the contest can purchase a lifetime license. Additional information on lifetime license privileges can be found here.
