    Piedmont refuge Permits are required for all hunters and fishermen and anyone who accompanies them. In addition to refuge permits all state license requirements must be met. A Georgia WMA license is not required since the refuge is NOT a state area. Refuge permits are NOT transferable. The General Permit may be obtained at the entrance of the Little Rock Wildlife Drive, the Refuge Visitor Center, Allison Lake Kiosk, or by mail.


    The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issues permits under various wildlife law and treaties at a number of offices throughout the country.  Permits enable the public to engage in legitimate wildlife-related activities that would otherwise be prohibited by law.  Service permit programs ensure that such activities are carried out in a manner that safeguards wildlife.  Additionally, some permits promote conservation efforts by authorizing scientific research, generating data, or allowing wildlife management and rehabilitation activates to go forward.

    Permits are handled by permitting programs in International Affairs (Management Authority), Endangered SpeciesLaw Enforcement, and  Migratory Birds.
