The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division has made quota hunt applications available online.
A press release dated May 28, 2019 from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division stated, “Beginning June 1, hunters can apply electronically for quota hunts including adult/child [hunts for], deer, alligator, waterfowl, dove and many others.”
A quota 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 hunt. These hunts provide a challenging and rewarding experience to hunters of all levels. Selected hunters must be properly licensed to participate in a quota hunt.
“Because quota hunts allow a predetermined number of hunters on a particular area, they most certainly provide exceptional hunting opportunities,” says John Bowers, Chief of the Game Management Section with the Wildlife Resources Division. “So, if you are hoping to get to hunt the area of your choice, don’t let the deadlines get past you without applying.”
