2017 Georgia Deer Season Week 2 Results

We just wrapped up the second weekend of Georgia’s 2017-2018 deer season. While we had a few really nice days following Hurricane Irma things quickly warmed up for the weekend. Facebook was pretty quiet over the weekend as far as deer harvests go, but there was one exceptionally nice buck taken by Thomas Shea Lamb in Sumter County. You can see that buck and more on our Facebook page. I took another look at Georgia DNR’s game check report this morning and wanted to share those results with you. There are two tables in this report. The first is deer harvest on Georgia’s public lands, organized by WMA. The second is the overall deer harvest by county. Keep in mind that hunters have 72 hours to report their harvest, so there are certainly some deer killed over the weekend that have not yet been recorded. And, as we all know, there were plenty of deer killed over the weekend that will never be reported, but that’s a whole other story. I can only report what is legally checked.

I’ll be adding updates to the Georgia Afield website all season, so be sure to check back often. Better yet, be sure to add yourself to our email list and you’ll always be up to date with anything related to hunting in Georgia!

We’d love to hear how your opening weekend went. Be sure to join us in the Georgia Deer Hunting Discussion Facebook group and share you experience.
