Beginning June 1, Georgia Wildlife Resources Division will accept online applications for public quota hunts including deer, alligator, waterfowl, dove and many others. The newly redesigned system now allows sportsmen and women of all ages to apply electronically for quota hunts including Adult/Child specialty hunts.
“The new system offers much improved service and convenience for our hunters,” says John Bowers, assistant chief of Game Management. “For example, youth applying for an Adult/Child hunt will no longer have to complete a paper application, mail it in and wonder if it was received. We’ve completely eliminated the paper. All applicants receive an immediate confirmation that their application was submitted and subsequent notifications via email.”
Bowers notes that all applicants MUST create an online account on the new system before applying for an upcoming hunt – even if they have applied for hunts for years prior. Hunters will be selected solely from online applications. Some quota hunters have already created accounts when they applied for the 2012 turkey season; however, most people will have to create a new account.
New System Highlights
Application deadlines vary depending on hunt type. The first deadlines are July 31 for Alligator, August 15 for Dove, including Adult/Child, and September 1 for all types of Deer Hunts, including Adult/Child.

Upon completion of the selection process, applicants will receive a notification e-mail and also will be able to login to their accounts to view their updated status.
