Public Meetings for Georgia’s 2015-2017 Hunting Regulations

Public meetings will be held to obtain public input prior to the formulation of hunting-regulation proposals.

GON Staff | December 26, 2014

Every two years, WRD hosts a series of public meetings to get hunter input prior to making hunting-regulation proposals for the upcoming hunting seasons. The next round of these public meetings will be for the 2015-2017 hunting regulations. Meeting dates and locations are printed below. All meetings start at 7 p.m.

At these meetings, biologists or other WRD Game Management staff will generally present information on hunting-related topics. Then, hunters are allowed to speak on those topics or on any other hunting-related subject they wish to speak about.

GON spoke with chief of WRD’s Game Management John Bowers about what sort of information would be presented by WRD this time around, and he mentioned three main items: a deer season end date, buck-only hunting dates and a WMA quota-hunt application fee. These issues line up with this month’s VOTES questions. Turn to page 12 for more information on these three issues.

For those unable to make the public meetings, a page will be up on the WRD website that will provide folks instructions on how to make written comments. Keep checking
