Lake Allatoona Hunting Permit Application Information

On May 1, 2019, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Mobile District will begin to accept Lake Allatoona hunting permit application requests for the 2019/2020 hunting season.

The USACE says it will issue “the first 400 permits on a first-come, first-served basis to hunters who use the current 2,777 acres of public land available for hunting.”  Requests for hunting permits may be submitted as of Wednesday, May 1, 2019.  According to the USACE, “No applications will be accepted prior to this date.”

All hunters are required to have a permit in order to hunt USACE hunting areas, however these permits do not apply to the Allatoona Wildlife Management Area, operated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources..

A $20.00 special permit activity fee is required for each requested permit. Permits may be obtained by sending a request by mail to include hunter name, address, telephone number, pertinent state hunting license number, e-mail address, self-addressed stamped envelope, and check or money order.

If multiple hunting permits are to be purchased by single request, all the above information will have to be provided for each hunter. Incomplete applications will be returned.  Permits will be mailed prior to the 2019/2020 hunting season.

A USACE press release dated April 18, 2019 stated, “Allatoona Lake Project Hunting Permits include: permit number, name, pertinent state hunting license number, regulations and a dashboard pass that must be displayed in the vehicle while hunting.”

Hunting area maps and a copy of current hunting regulations may be viewed at this Allatoona Lake hunting webpage.
