SOCIAL CIRCLE — Sportsmen and women of all ages can apply electronically for quota hunts — including 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. 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, chief of the WRD’s Game Management Section. “Maintaining a current and valid email address is important to ensure timely notification regarding quota-hunt application confirmations and selection notices. Please review and update your account information regularly.”
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.
