Can you see the North Star in Georgia in Winter?

Where: north-central Georgia, United States

I am writing the climax of a chapter that focuses on three guys looking at the North Star and I just realized, you can still see Polaris in winter in the Northern Hemisphere, right? As far south as north-central Georgia? They're on a low hill surrounded by pine forest far from any major settlement.

Searched: Polaris visibility January northern hemisphere; seemed to indicate yes, but low in the horizon.

EDIT: found the tag.

EDIT 2: The answer is yes, and thanks for the quick assurances.
