The window of opportunity is closing for people interested in a 2012 deer quota hunt. If you want a chance, you need to complete your online quota application in before midnight September 1, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.
“Don’t hesitate to get your application in for a quota hunt or you will miss a superb hunting opportunity,” said John Bowers, assistant chief of the Game Management Section. “Quota hunt locations and dates are specifically selected to provide one of the best hunting experiences you can have. We believe this coming season will bring much success to participating hunters.”
Deer quota opportunities include hunts on wildlife management areas and state park lands, dog-deer hunting and adult/child hunting opportunities.
