This license cannot be obtained or renewed online - you will need to complete the form and mail it and supporting documents to the address on the form. Additional information and instructions for completing the form are on the back of the application. This free license is available only to Georgia residents, and is good for three years. It can be renewed before expiration by sending documents showing continued disability.
Georgia residents may obtain a lifetime license — that does not have to be renewed — instead of the disability license: cost for adults age 16 to 60 is $500, cost for veterans under 60 is $400, cost at age 60 is $95, and at age 65 the lifetime license is free.
Resident Disability Licenses are full-privilege sportsman’s licenses, and they include all state paid recreational hunting and fishing privileges (see below for additional no-cost state licenses that may be required). The Disability License includes hunting, big game, Wildlife Management Area (WMA), alligator, Georgia waterfowl conservation, salt and freshwater fishing and mountain trout licenses.
Remaining licenses or permits that may be needed are the free annual state harvest record (deer and turkey), the free annual state HIP License for migratory birds, free annual state SIP License for salt water fishing, the free honorary state deer dog hunting license, and/or the federal duck stamp, depending on what is being hunted. If you need any of these four, they must be renewed each year. A quota permit is needed in addition to the included alligator hunting license to harvest one alligator per quota permit – the Disability License includes alligator hunting when assisting the quota permit holder, or covers hunting if the holder has obtained the alligator quota permit themselves. Trapping or other commercial licenses are not included. Persons may initial the front of the application if they want fishing privileges only.
The free Harvest Record, free HIP License, free annual state SIP License for salt water fishing and free honorary state deer dog hunting license are available anywhere Georgia licenses are sold, including through our online web site, by phone, or at a license agent. Directions for doing all three can be found here. The Federal Duck Stamp is available at Post Offices, from some Georgia license agents, and online at http://www.fws.gov/duckstamps . There is a federally required fee for the Federal Duck Stamp.
