SOCIAL CIRCLE – The 2013-2014 Georgia Hunting Seasons and Regulations Guide is now available online and in print.
This guide outlines season dates, bag limits, hunting license requirements, wildlife management areas, quota hunts, youth opportunities and more.
The guide can be viewed, downloaded and printed at www.gohuntgeorgia.com/hunting/regulations. Printed copies are available at Wildlife Resources Division offices and through license vendors throughout Georgia.
Major changes to hunting regulations include:
• Changes to either-sex days for deer: To address statewide biological concerns and strike a balance with diverse hunter desires, most counties of the state will have a reduction in either-sex days.
• Special opportunity turkey season: The Georgia General Assembly passed legislation directing the Department to establish a special opportunity turkey season for ages 16 and younger, as well as mobility- impaired persons.
• Dog-feral-hog hunting opportunities: Beaverdam, Big Hammock, Cohutta, Chattahoochee, Cooper’s Creek, and Warwoman WMAs will offer quota dog-feral-hog hunts this season.
Members of the Board of Natural Resources enact hunting regulations based on recommendations made by the Division’s professional wildlife biologists and field personnel. Georgia’s game and fish laws are enacted by the General Assembly.
