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.

The SIP permit is part of a comprehensive effort by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources to collect timely and accurate data from saltwater anglers for use in resource management. Other Saltwater Information Program activities include volunteer fish tagging, a fish carcass donation project, and ongoing creel surveys of anglers and fishing guides.

By checking criteria fields, users can find recreational opportunities, directions, handicap accessibility, telephone numbers and website links for more details.The tool also offers a "near me" function to help users determine which recreational opportunities are closest to them.
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.
Hey really need more hunters from the southern portion of your region. Cook, Berrien, Lanier, Clinch, Charlton, Pierce, Bacon, Appling, Atkinson, Coffee, Jeff Davis, Montgomery, Toombs, Tattnall are all low on number of hunters.

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.
