I took a quick look at the Ga. regulations. Here's what they say on this:
Residents and non-residents born on or after
Jan. 1, 1961 must successfully complete a
hunter education course prior to purchasing
a season hunting license. However, a hunter
education course is not required to purchase
a one (1) day or three (3) day Hunting
Hunter education is not required to hunt on one’s own
land or land of a parent or guardian.
Hunters Age 16-25
must present a Hunter
Education Card when purchasing a season
hunting license and must possess the card
Hunters Over Age 25
and born after
Jan. 1, 1961 must meet hunter education
course requirements but need not present
their Hunter Education Card when buying a
season hunting license or possess it while
They way I understand this, if he's over 25 or he's hunting on his own land he doesn't actually have to have the card with him. That's assuming, of course that he managed to get someone to sell him a license without one. If he's between 16 and 25 and he buys a 1 or 3 day license then he doesn't need it. The problem is that residents don't appear to be able to buy the 3 day license (and lieing about being a resident might be fraud) so he'd have to buy a daily (one day) license to be legal. There's still a problem with that though because there's no daily Big Game license, only non-resident 3 day and yearly so we're back to the begining: He's gotta be over 25 or be hunting on his own (or parents) land AND have a valid license to be legal without the Hunter Education Card.
To be clear, that's just my interpretation of the Ga regulations based on the DNR website here: http://www.georgiawildlife.com/Asset...eb_version.pdf
I haven't hunted in Ga. in about 20 years so take it for what it's worth.
And that's just mine...
Hunt well, hunt safe.
