The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) at Lake Allatoona has news for hunters.
Beginning with the 2013/2014 hunting season, a $20 special activity fee will be assessed for hunting on certain Allatoona Lake lands. This fee is necessary to offset increasing costs in administering the program and for some future improvements of wildlife habitat.
Hunters may mail this fee, along with a request to be issued a written Allatoona Lake USACE Hunting Permit.
This permit package will include:
- hunting regulations
- a wallet-sized Permit and
- a vehicle dashboard Hunter Parking Pass to be displayed while hunting.
Hunters must have a current valid USACE Hunting Permit in their possession while using these areas.
These USACE Hunting Permits do not apply to the Allatoona Wildlife Management Area, operated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources nor to the Hunting Areas leased to and operated by Cobb County Parks and Recreation Department.
This year, as in previous years, 400 Permits are available on a first-come-first-served basis for authorized hunting activities on almost 3,000 acres of public land.
USACE Hunting Permits will be available starting with requests received by mail on or after June 01, 2013.
Permits may be obtained by mailing in a request which includes:
- 1) $20 check
- 2) hunter’s name, address & telephone number
- 3) hunter’s e-mail address
- 4) GA State hunting license number and
- 5) a self-addressed stamped envelope.
Checks should be made to: “F&A Officer Mobile District, COE“. Do not send cash!
Send activity fees and requests to:
- Allatoona Lake Operations Project Management Office
- 1138 State Route 20 Spur, SE
- Cartersville, GA 30121
Again, these USACE Hunting Permits do not apply to the Allatoona Wildlife Management Area, operated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources nor to the Hunting Areas leased to and operated by Cobb County Parks and Recreation Department.
No USACE permit is required for waterfowl hunting on lake water areas if conducted in accordance with all applicable USACE, Georgia and Federal regulations.
