Proposed 2021-2022 Georgia Deer Season Dates

Georgia Deer Hunting
The Georgia DNR Wildlife Resources Division recently released their proposed changes for the 2021-2022 hunting seasons. While there were some significant changes coming for next turkey season, very little changed for Georgia deer hunters. In fact, there were no changes to deer season dates (other than what is noted below) and bag limits other than the normal shift in dates so that all season openers fall on their respective Saturdays. More Extended Archery Counties The only proposed regulation changes for the 2021-2022 season is adding 10 counties to the extended archery season, which will allow bowhunters to continue hunting in those counties until January 31. Those additional counties include Barrow, Cherokee, Columbia, Decatur, Douglas, Fayette, Hall, Muscogee, Paulding, and Seminole. Consistent Antler Restrictions Another change coming for 2021 seeks to…

Georgia Afield Welcomes Tethrd as First Corporate Sponsor

Action Alert: Georgia HB471 is a Serious Threat to Bowhunting and Recreational Archery

Action Alert: Georgia HB471 is a Serious Threat to Bowhunting and Recreational Archery

Action Alerts
Many of you have heard about the recent threat to bowhunting in Columbus/Muscogee County where the city council sought to ban bowhunting in the county on less than 10 acres. That issue was supposed to be discussed at the council meeting on Tuesday, February 23, but was tabled so the city could do additional research. While it's only speculation, my guess is that city leaders became aware they have no authority to regulate hunting within the city or county. That authority lies solely with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources. It's certainly not the first time that a Georgia city has unsuccessfully sought to stop or limit bowhunting. However, there is currently a bill in Georgia's House of Representatives, HB471, that would transfer that authority and give cities/municipalities the ability…
