App Description

The new GeoChallenge feature is here!

The Official Georgia Fishing, Hunting & Wildlife Guide was created in a collaborative effort between the Georgia Department of Natural Resources – Wildlife Resource Division and ParksByNature Network™.

Gain access to useful information in the palm of your hand. This innovative outdoor guide, powered by Pocket Ranger® technology, brings the wilderness to your fingertips and helps you plan the perfect adventure in the great outdoors. You will be able to locate Georgia’s fishing, hunting and wilderness sites and gain immediate access to on-the-spot species profiles, rules and regulations, and important permits and licensing details.
