Hunters Helping Farmers C. Mo's Kids

Welcome to GHFF

The Georgia Hunting and Fishing Federation is a grassroots organization that is committed to promoting the outdoor sports. Founded in September 2003 hunters and fishermen from all over Georgia organized and held a rally in Blackshear, GA. with nearly 5000 folks in attendance. From this start GHFF has formed local chapters all over the state. The GHFF has worked with the legislation and DNR to preserve and protect some age old hunting traditions and to implement some changes to improve hunting and encourage kids to get involved in outdoor sports. The GHFF Expo is held each year to promote awareness of our organization and expose the public to the latest equipment and opportunities available in the great outdoors.

June 2015 News Release - OPEN FORUMS SET TO DISCUSS POTENTIAL CHANGES TO LICENSE STRUCTURE AND FEES

DNR License Restructure Update

AIMING FOR SUCCESS BY INVESTING IN GEORGIA WILDLIFE: DNR License Restructure Update

As many of you are aware, the Department of Natural Resources has been working since last year on potential changes to recreational license structure and fees. Our primary objectives in seeking a change to licensing include: simplifying license purchase decisions; improving recruitment and retention; providing value to our customers while attaining price parity with other southeastern states; recapturing lost buying power; increasing certification to improve revenues from the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program; implementation of workforce strategies; and, exceeding customer expectations for services.

It has been 23 years since resident license fees were last adjusted and the stagnant revenue is affecting our short and long-term ability to meet growing customer demands in many core areas. Georgia now ranks in the lowest tier of states regarding license fees and is in the upper tier of states offering free hunting and fishing privileges.

After completing the initial online survey and public forums we have heard from over 5,000 people and are seeing a large majority (80% or more) of sportsmen supporting the initiative. We have an additional, more in-depth survey for our customers to provide feedback now available on the website www.georgiawildlife.com/aimforsuccess and hope that you will take the survey and encourage others take it as well.

Our intent is to facilitate a rigorous exchange of input and ideas from our many customers and partners regarding license fees, options for improvements and desired enhancements. We will use the gathered insights to formulate a license proposal that will be presented to our Board and ultimately offered up to the General Assembly for their consideration in the 2016 Legislative Session.

To keep dog hunting legal and restore the right to have fox pens in Florida

Keep Dog Hunting Legal

To help protect our right to dog hunt in southern states this will be shared. Florida lost the right on fox pens and this is a chance to regain the ability dismiss this rule. (68A-24.002 and 68A-9.002, F.A.C.,) that allowed for chasing foxes/coyotes in an enclosure.

That's why I signed a petition to Florida wildlife commission and Florida state legislature, which says:
"To keep dog hunting legal and restore the right to have fox pens in Florida"

Hunters Helping Farmers

Hunters Helping Farmers is a new private lands initiative opportunity that seeks to match up hog hunters in the same county with farmers that need assistance with hog removal. This initiative is a partnership effort between the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Department of Natural Resources in order to help landowners manage the damaging impact of feral hogs.

Sportsman's Pantry

Donate A Deer And Feed The Hungry

Its as easy as that. Step up and make a difference.

There is a program that now, in its fourth season, is beginning to gain real traction and it is a winner for sportsmen processors and our communities.

The program is called Sportsman's Pantry, and it functions under the oversight of four sportsman's groups, GON Network, Georgia Hunting & Fishing Federation, SafariClub International, and Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry.

But the groups are not the important story here. The real story is sportsmen like you finding a way to do what we all want done, and doing it better than it has ever been done before in Georgia, and doing it where you live and hunt.

The aim of the program is to bring together three groups at the local level. Those groups are:

 hunters willing do donate a deer to those in need,
 processors will do the work at a reduced price, and
 local approved charities who can accept the processed venison.
