Permits and Regulations


Fort Stewart has been open to public hunting and fishing since 1959 and provides some of the finest recreation in southeast Georgia! Fort Stewart is the second largest single public hunting and fishing entity in the state...only second to the Chattahoochee National Forest.

All hunters on the installation must possess a Hunter Safety Course certificate, a valid Georgia hunting license, and the appropriate Fort Stewart hunting permit.

Hunters Safety Course

The 2010 Hunter Safety Course dates are 4 September, 9 October, 13 November, 11 December. All classes will be held at Holbrook Pond Recreation at 9:30 AM. For more information, call the Pass & Permit Office at (912) 435-8061.

The Army desires to offer the safest possible outdoor experience for those sportsmen and women that hunt on installation lands. Consequently, a recent Army regulation requires that ALL hunters, regardless of age and experience, complete an NRA certified hunter safety course before hunting on any installation.

The Outdoor Recreation Office and the Conservation Law Enforcement Section work together every year to provide numerous hunter safety classes, in addition to those offered by Georgia Department of Natural Resources, well in advance of hunting seasons to help hunters comply with this new policy. Call 435-8061 for class information. Remember you MUST register for a hunter education class through the state office, not Pass and Permit.

Automated Pass and Permit check-in System

Because military training is Fort Stewart's top priority, recreational access into all areas of the installation must be controlled to ensure unimpeded training and the safety of sportsmen. Consequently, ALL sportsmen who have purchased a permit must check in with the Pass & Permit Office before recreating on Ft. Stewart/HAAF. 

Fort Stewart/HAAF utilizes an automated access system whereby sportsmen who have a valid permit may use a touch tone phone to verify that the training area, pond, or river landing they wish to use is open. Then through a menu of recorded message options, one can quickly and easily check-in from the convenience of their home or cellular phone.

The Fort Stewart Pass & Permit Office (phone:  (912) 435-8061/8033, fax:  (912) 435-8177)  is located off of GA HWY 144 in front of the gun and archery ranges.  After purchasing a permit from this office, please remember to get an instruction package. This package will guide you through the automated check in process.  Once you've purchased your permit, you may call one of the numbers below to check in. Anglers are not required to check-out.Currently the hours of operation for Pass & Permit are as follows:

  • Monday - Friday: 11:00 AM - 6:00 PM
  • Holidays, Saturday & Sunday (& Training Holidays): 7:00 AM - 3:00 PM
