You must get a hunter education course certificate in order to get a hunting license.
All hunters born on or after Jan. 1, 1961, must successfully complete a hunter education course before purchasing a season-long hunting license. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources provides in-person classroom course options at no cost. There are also several DNR-approved hunter education courses available online, which may have fees.
At the end of your course, you will receive a certificate of completion. This certificate does not expire. Please keep a copy of this certificate for your records. You will need the certificate number in order to apply for a season-long hunting license.
