2019 Georgia Deer Season Opening Weekend Results

 

Georgia’s 2019-2020 deer season is now underway after an opening weekend that saw continued above average temperatures for this time of year. I’ve seen reports of a few respectable bucks taken that I have been sharing on our Facebook page, as well as a fair number of antlerless deer. I took a look at Georgia DNR’s game check report this evening 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 may be 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, as well as on the podcast, 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.

Hear us discuss these results on Episode 11 of the Georgia Afield Hunting Podcast.
