Sign in Online for WMA Sign-in Hunts Before you go

SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (3/20/2013)

Just in time for turkey season, hunters can now sign in online before heading out to wildlife management area sign-in hunts.

Before participating in a WMA sign-in hunt, hunters can sign-in online through a computer or mobile device by visiting http://georgiawildlife.com/hunting. Use of the sign-in system is only permissible for hunters participating in WMA sign-in hunts.  All quota and check-in hunts are excluded.  In addition, the Wildlife Resources Division will continue to offer paper sign-in sheets at WMAs. Hunters will only need to sign-in online or at the WMA (not both).

“The WMA system gives resident hunters access to nearly 1 million acres of prime hunting land for just $19 a year, and every Georgian lives within an hour of a WMA,” said Dan Forster, Wildlife Resources Division director. “The online sign-in system creates an even more convenient experience for hunters already participating in WMA sign-in hunts, and we hope it entices more sportsmen to take advantage of the great hunting opportunities available on these lands.”

A WMA license is required for any person 16 years or older who does not possess a valid honorary, sportsman or lifetime license when hunting on a WMA or public fishing area. In addition, a valid hunting license and a big game license are required to hunt wild turkey, deer and bear. If a turkey, deer or bear is harvested during a WMA sign-in hunt, hunters are required to sign out their harvested game at the check station/kiosk on the day of the harvest. Be sure to check other regulations before you go at http://georgiawildlife.com/hunting/regulations.
