Apply for Georgia Quota Hunts now

SOCIAL CIRCLE — Beginning June 1, Georgia WildlifeResources 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 toapply 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 include:

-First Step: Visit the website  Then click on “Access the new Quota Hunt System!” Read all instructions in the “About” tab, which contains critical information for successfully creating an account and completing your application.

-New Opportunities: The new quota hunt system now allows hunters to apply for special hunting opportunities, including all Adult/Child hunts. Only children (17 and under) should apply for Adult/Child hunts.Supervising adults must be present at the hunt.

-Be Accurate: Quota hunt applicants must enter their Social

Security Number correctly when creating their account. This ensures the transfer of any priority points from previous seasons to the new account.

-Tip: Make sure your email address is current and correct so that

you can receive quota updates, confirmations and any notices about quota hunts.

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.

To be sure to get your application in on time, check the complete

deadline list located at

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.

  • Lowndes_McPherson.jpg Milestones on tap for upcoming season

    Some milestones are destined to occur, like when Georgia Christian hosts David Emanuel on Aug. 22 in the Generals’ first varsity football game since the late 1960s.
    Others will have to wait and see what continues to take shape come Friday when teams can begin fall practice, and especially Aug. 1 when teams can suit up in pads for the first time, such as can Valdosta win its record 24th state title, or can Lowndes capture its fourth state championship under Randy McPherson, or can Valwood and coach Ashley Henderson play in its third straight GISA state championship game?
    As we start to find out the answers to those questions in just a few short weeks — the regular season is just 31 days away — there should be a few more milestones for area coaches to mark 2014 right along with the Generals getting back on the gridiron.

    If Ed Pilcher had his way, Berrien High would never throw the football.
