Hunting on Lake Allatoona

Seasonal hunting is permitted at the 7,000 acre Allatoona Wildlife and Management Center, at the northeastern part of Lake Allatoona. Georgia Wildlife Management Area stamps are required.

Other Corps-managed areas allow hunting with a valid state hunting license, and an Allatoona Lake Corps Hunting permit. Your weapons must be in accordance with those permissible for designated areas.  Always refer to the current hunting map.

Obtaining a Hunting Permit

Requests for permits are accepted from January 1st of every year to August 1st for the upcoming season. Permits are free and can be obtained by sending a self-addressed envelope with a business class stamp and a note 1) stating the envelope is for a hunting permit and 2) the hunters phone numbers. Hunters with permits from the year before can send the survey issue with their permit without the envelope. The first 400 permits will be processed and the remaining applications will be returned. Requests after August 1st will not be processed.
