    Take your recently expired New Hampshire in with you when you go for your Georgia. Maybe they can hurry things up for you a little bit if they know you have a hike planned.

    My county quotes two weeks but if you call and check on it you can get it within a few days. No county should be taking more than two weeks, although by law they can take more.
    Go apply and speak with the Probate Judge. Explain the situation to him or her and see if they can have it signed and ready for you before your trip.

    As for the hunting license, you have to actually be in the act of hunting or on your way to or from. Also, there are no temporary hunting licenses in Georgia.
    they actually are quoting 3-5 business days but I just had two friends apply for theirs and they both waited about 20-23 days. I can't wait that long BUT I think I will talk to the Probate Judge. If he/she can expedite it under special circumstances that'd be awesome. Plus my NICS check will come back right away, fast and easy because I'm the only person in the freaking world with my actual name. lol So maybe I'll get lucky. Thanks for the info, you're the best!

    haha thanks Chaplain Scott! You're right, no such thing as too many guns. haha. The only reason I'm concerned about the shotgun is the weight of it on my smaller framed friend. I'm a solid chick but she's more comfortable with shotguns vs pistols which is why we had decided I'd carry the XD and her the Mossberg. I imagine two women will always look like easy prey to most human predators but what a surprise it would be to have your behind handed to you by a couple of lowly female hikers. bwahahahahahaa (evil laughter continues for an awkwardly long time....) cough. cough.... not that I'm looking for trouble or anything. :)
    lol

    If all else fails, check and see if any small game seasons may be open ( squirrel, rabbit, etc. ) If so, get your hunting license and carry your shotgun. You don't HAVE to shoot any 4 legged critters, but you'd be legal. You are getting close to turkey season, check Ga. rules and pay attention to required shot size if you go that route. They are specific as to shot and gun capacity. No big problem, just know before you go. P.S. you will probably have to get a turkey stamp also.
