As of June 1, hunters can apply electronically for Georgia’s quota deer hunts including adult/child huntsd, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.

“A quota hunt allows for a predetermined number of hunters on a particular area, creating quality hunting opportunities for participants, while meeting harvest objectives,” says John Bowers, Chief of the Game Management Section with the Wildlife Resources Division.  “Don’t miss out! We encourage you to review available quota hunts and be sure to get those applications in between June 1 and September 1 for this upcoming year.”

A quota deer hunt is a scheduled event at a Wildlife Management Area or other state-managed property where a limited number of hunters are allowed.  Quota levels are based upon the sound principles of wildlife management and public desires for a quality deer hunt.  These hunts provide a challenging and rewarding experience to hunters of all levels.  Selected hunters must be properly licensed to participate in a deer quota hunt.
