2018 Georgia Deer Season Week 1 Results

We just wrapped up the first week of Georgia’s 2018-2019 deer season. It’s been hot, but that hasn’t stopped numerous great bucks from hitting the ground, including a 190-inch velvet giant out of Fulton County.  You can see that buck and more on our Facebook page. I took a look at Georgia DNR’s game check report last night 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 this past week that have not yet been recorded. And, as we all know, there have been several deer killed 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.
