As part of The Wildlife Resources Division's (WRD) goal to maintain a sustainable alligator population in Georgia, records of the State's alligator harvest, alligator hunter effort, and alligator hunter success are acquired each year and then used to adjust hunting regulations in subsequent years to achieve desired results.
How does the WRD get this information?
Harvest records are obtained by surveying Georgia alligator hunters about their alligator hunting effort during the past season. Surveys are completed when a successful hunter validates a harvested alligator at one of WRD's Game Management offices.
