Fall is in the air and that means the 2022-2023 Georgia Hunting Season is on. According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GDNR), the state is “one of the most biologically diverse states” and boasts some of “the best hunting in the nation.” Georgia hunting enthusiasts must follow safety and licensing requirements, as well as abide by strict regulations (see links below), and have a plethora of exciting, challenging and even adventurous hunting opportunities. Along with private landowners offering hunts, the state of Georgia allows hunting on state-managed Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) and federally-managed lands like national forests and wildlife refuges ranging from dense forests to vast open fields. While deer are the most common game hunted in Georgia, the state allows hunting of a wide variety of species including white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, black bears, alligators, feral hogs, small game, doves and waterfowl. Non-native and invasive species include feral hogs, coyotes, armadillos, beavers, groundhogs, starlings, pigeons and English sparrows. Whatever your hunting pleasure, you are certain to find it here in Georgia.
