BRUNSWICK - The Department of Natural Resources has requested the Board of Natural Resources change shark regulations to ensure the State of Georgia complies with the Interstate Fishery Management Plan For Atlantic Coast Sharks.

For years, marathon runners have endured long distances in their quest for bragging rights and prestigious T-shirts. Now, state park hikers have their own conquest that ends with an exclusive "I did it!" T-shirt.

SOCIAL CIRCLE - Each year, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division recognizes anglers for outstanding and state record catches. Anglers who catch new state records (fish whose weight exceeds the previous record by one ounce) or those who catch a fish that meets or beats a specific weight or length limit for that species (angler award) are eligible for recognition. Information regarding angler awards and state record fish can be found on the division's Web site at www.gofishgeorgia.com or in the Georgia Sport Fishing Regulations Guidebook available at all division offices and all license agents.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division highlights the five delayed harvest streams available to anglers beginning Nov. 1.

SOCIAL CIRCLE - Georgia still holds the coveted title for the world record largemouth - a record that stands after more than 75 years. The impressive catch, lured from Montgomery Lake in 1932, tipped the scales at 22 pounds, 4 ounces. But a world record catch isn't Georgia's only claim to fame - it's the state's diversity of bass that continues to reel in anglers from across the nation.
SOCIAL CIRCLE - The weeklong primitive weapons deer-hunting season begins Saturday. During the primitive weapons season, hunters may use archery equipment (including crossbows), muzzleloading shotguns (20 gauge or larger) and muzzleloading firearms (.44 caliber or larger).
