Deer Harvest Record:

A deer harvest record is required for anyone who hunts deer.

HIP License (Migratory Bird License):

A HIP License is required for any person with a license that hunts migratory birds (doves, ducks, geese, woodcock, snipe, coots, rails or gallinules).

Unlike a hunting license, the Deer Harvest Record and the HIP License are not valid for a 12-month period but instead are only valid for a single season. Hunters must obtain a new Harvest Record or HIP License each season.

SIP Permit (Saltwater Information Program Permit):

A free SIP Permit is required for any person 16 years of age or older to fish in saltwater in Georgia. Unlike fishing and hunting licenses, the SIP permit is not valid for a 12-month period but instead is only valid for a single season and must be renewed on March 1 or later each year.  More information about the SIP Program.
