A question for the GA types here.

I was looking a license requirements for a non-resident hog hunt in GA. The ad said I need a Small Game license. When I looked up the  info on the types of licenses, I found nothing under the Small Game category.
Help ! ???

You need a general non residents license to hunt hogs in Georgia if you're hunting on private land. Basically  that's what a small game license is called here. Hogs are not considered game animals and belong to the land owner. If you were to hunt deer, bear or turkey, you need to buy a big game license to go along with your non-resident general license.

I've got a question.............
 
If the hogs are not game animals and belong to the landowner, why do you need a license at all?   :?   If I have goats or cattle on my land and I want someone to come shoot them, would they have to have a license for that?

It's all about the money, that is for sure! Back in the 60's and 70's there weren't as many hogs and they were considered vermin and if you were on private property no license was needed. Then these dipsticks started bringing hogs into the state illegally and turning them loose and then we had the pig population just explode so now they're in all 159 counties in the state. I've seen hog tracks less than 20 miles from where I'm sitting right now. So the state in all its wisdom decided they needed to get in on the money making end of this and ka-boom, they did!
