Hunters wishing to apply for a chance at a deer quota hunt need to get online soon. An online quota application must be in before midnight Sept. 1, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.
“Georgia’s deer quota hunts provide a diversity of opportunities on some well-managed properties,” said John Bowers, chief of the Game Management Section. “We have experienced a 25-30 percent increase in deer quota hunt applications over the past several years. Interest, especially among young people, is high in these popular opportunities and we expect to receive in excess of 14,000 applications this year.”
Deer quota opportunities include hunts on wildlife management areas and state park lands, dog-deer hunting and adult/child hunting opportunities.
