Georgia WMA Quota Hunt Sign-up Begins June 1

DNR Press Release | May 26, 2017

Beginning June 1, hunters can apply electronically for quota hunts, including adult/child, deer, alligator, waterfowl, dove and many others.

“A quota hunt allows for a predetermined number of hunters on a particular area, creating quality hunting opportunities for participants, while meeting harvest objectives,” says John Bowers, Chief of the Game Management Section with the Wildlife Resources Division. “We encourage you to review available quota hunts, and be sure to get those applications in between June 1 and September 1 for this upcoming year.”

A quota hunt is a scheduled event at a WMA or other state-managed property where a limited number of hunters are allowed. Quota levels are based upon the sound principles of wildlife management and public desires for a quality hunt. These hunts provide a challenging and rewarding experience to hunters of all levels. Selected hunters must be properly licensed to participate in a quota hunt.

Applying for a Quota Hunt is simple. Visit and select “Quota Hunts” and follow the steps to complete your application. Make sure that your email is current and correct in order to receive quota updates, confirmations or any notices about quota hunts.

Application deadlines vary depending on hunt type. The first deadlines are July 31 for alligator, Aug. 15 for dove, including adult/child, and Sept. 1 for all types of deer hunts, including adult/child. To be sure to get your application in on time, check the complete deadline list located at
