ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia wildlife officials are inviting the public to a series of meetings to discuss potential changes to the structure and cost of hunting and fishing licenses.
Officials say the department is considering raising prices for licenses to help continue to meet demand for upkeep of public hunting and fishing locations, conducting research, and stocking fish in state waterways. Officials say Georgia's license costs have not changed in 23 years and are below the national average.
The department has scheduled a series of meetings throughout the state between June 15 and June 25. The meetings are from 3 to 5 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Details on meeting locations can be found online.
