Georgia Quota Hunt Application Period Begins June 1

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

Beginning June 1, sportsmen and women of all ages in Georgia can apply electronically for quota hunts including all adult/child, deer, alligator, waterfowl, dove and many others, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.

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 experience to hunters of all levels. There is no application fee.  However, selected hunters must be properly licensed to participate in a quota hunt.

“All applicants must have an online quota hunt account to apply for these popular hunts.  Interested persons who do not have an account should create one before applying,” said John Bowers, assistant chief of the Game Management Section of the Wildlife Resources Division. “Maintaining a current valid email is important to ensure timely notices of quota hunt confirmations and notices. Please review and update your account information regularly.”

Quota Hunt System Tips

· Where to Go: Visit the website www.georgiawildlife.com/hunting/quota

· Be Accurate:  Quota hunt applicants must enter their Social Security Number correctly when creating their account. This ensures the transfer of any priority points from previous seasons to the new account.

· Keep it Current: Make sure your email address is current and correct so that you can receive quota updates, confirmations and any notices about quota hunts.

Application deadlines vary depending on hunt type. The first deadlines are July 31, for Alligator, Aug. 15 for Dove, including Adult/Child, and Sept. 1, for all types of Deer Hunts, including Adult/Child.

To be sure to get your application in on time, check the complete deadline list at www.georgiawildlife.com/hunting/quota.
