New Hunting Guide Available from Georgia DNR

August 19, 2013

8-19-2013 Hunting GuideThe 2013-2014 Georgia Hunting Seasons and Regulations Guide is now available online and in print, announces the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.

Georgia DNR Spokesperson Melissa Cummings explains what information hunters can find in the guide this year.

“We want to get people ready and get them this new information so they are ready for those seasons when they come,” said Cummings.  “The hunting guidebook includes a lot of things including things like bag limits, information about hunting licenses and wildlife management areas and what hunts will be available on those areas.  That part is especially important to everyone in their local areas, so they can look up their favorite WMA and find out what dates there are for various hunts on that property.”

Changes are made just about every year to the guide, and Cummings says that the DNR does a good job of making those changes more noticeable for Georgia hunters.

“One thing that is nice about this guide is we try to highlight some of those things each year in the guide, towards the front of it, where hunters can find out what are the major changes coming up,” said Cummings.  “Some of those this year include a special opportunity turkey season.  It is directed towards youth and mobility-impaired persons; some dog-feral hog hunting opportunities on various public hunting lands, and then as well, some changes to the either-sex days for deer.”

You may view, download and print the guide at, or you can pick up a printed copy at all Wildlife Resources Division offices and license vendors throughout the state of Georgia.
