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.

Proposed Regulations - Cut December Doe Days
Recently some news media outlets have wrongly reported that the DNR proposed rule changes reduces the number of days by 25 for deer hunting in Georgia. That is NOT CORRECT. The proposed change reduces the number of either sex hunting by 2...5 days. Nearly 65% of hunters in the recent GON poll favored a reduction in either sex hunting days. Your deer hunting season dates will stay the same. GHFF stands behind our sportsman in Georgia and will continue to work with the DNR to address the concerns of the hunting community.

Public Hearings on 2013-2014 thru 2014-2015 Regulation Changes
Every concerned hunter needs to attend these meeting and/or send in comments on anything from online quota applications to bag limits or hunter access to Game management land for fox hunting and rabbit hunting or anything that concerns you as a hunter in Georgia.
Remember to always sign up to speak at public hearings even if you just agree with something already discussed or disagree with something, that is the only way that you get counted on an issue.
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.
The Sportsman's Pantry In Walker County has been a big hit with the hunters so far as we have donated 250 pounds of ground venison this year. 250 pounds was our goal for Walker County and we met it yesterday. We still have a month and a half of deer season to go and are still taking deer. Thanks to everyone who has helped us make this a great success.
Sportsman Pantry already distributed over 1000lbs of venison see story at GON
Got a hunting trip planned? Bridge closures at two south Georgia WMAs are a good reason to remind hunters to check information (such as road closures, etc.) on the wildlife management area you are planning to visit before you go.
