Hunting & Fishing
The Pass and Permit office sells hunting and fishing licenses and issues area access passes for recreational activities, i.e. fishing, hunting, camping, nature watching, berry picking, etc. The fishing season is year round in ponds and rivers with the prime bass, redbreast and crappie in the spring of the year. Everyone needs to check with Fish and Wildlife website or the Pass and Permit Office to review any changes before you go hunting or fishing on Ft.Stewart or Hunter AAF.

Please do not bring your weapons to the registration station. Note this is not a hunting permit. For more detailed information please contact the Registration Office 912-767-5195.
