Georgia DNR recently announced the dates for Georgia's 2018-2019 deer season. For firearms hunters, those dates are October 20, 2018 to January 13, 2019 (see restrictions below). Once again, the dates in which you can legally harvest does with a firearm vary by county. Those dates are listed on the map and in the table below. We've made every effort to ensure these dates are accurate, but ALWAYS check the newest hunting regulations booklet before heading afield. Firearms deer hunting is not allowed in Clayton, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton (north of GA Hwy 92), and the portion of Glynn County lying within Jekyll Island. In the portion of Forsyth County south of GA Hwy 20, only archery, shotguns, and muzzleloaders may be used.
