A: Owners of the current senior lifetime license (for those age 65 and up) who were born on or before June 30, 1952, remain eligible for the free license, Melissa Cummings, spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division, told Q&A on the News.
For those born after June 30, 1952, the senior lifetime hunting and fishing license carries a cost of $70.
This license change goes into effect July 1. It’s Georgia’s first hike to hunting and fishing fees in 25 years, the AJC previously reported.
