According to a recent post on the Georgia DNR – Law Enforcement Division’s Facebook page, on August 18, Ranger 1st Class Phillip Nelson responded to a call of subjects violating a crop deprivation deer permit. Two subjects were caught in possession of eight white-tailed deer of which three were antlered bucks. The permit was for antlerless deer only and one of the subjects was not listed on the permit. Citations were issued for the violations.

These permits are necessary for agricultural protection in many areas, but for biological sound reasons, the stipulations on the permits must be followed.
