In an effort to meet customer needs, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division (WRD) has extended the deadline for deer and State Park quota hunt applications until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, September 5, 2006. A notice of the change has been posted at www.georgiawildlife.com.

In a year of transition, as WRD moves all quota hunt applications to electronic rather than paper copies, there have understandably been some legitimate customer user and technical issues. Recognizing this, and continuing to try and offer the best customer service to hunters in the state, WRD has determined to extend the deadline in an effort to resolve these concerns. WRD also encourages hunters to share this information with others that may be interested in this opportunity.

In some cases, the hunter has a pre-existing account. Those who applied for an alligator, deer (including State Park), turkey or waterfowl quota hunt last season (2005-2006) have an account created for them that includes their current quota hunt status. Additionally, those who have either recently completed a hunter education course or purchased a Georgia hunting license through the WRD website have an account that has been updated to reflect their current quota hunt status. Hunters that do not fall into one of those two categories must set up an account prior to applying for a quota hunt. To apply, visit www.gohuntgeorgia.com and select "Hunting," then "Quota Hunt and Information" and finally "Georgia's Online Quota Hunt Application System."

Applicants should follow the directions closely and completely in an effort to apply for quota hunts. This will facilitate the Department's effort in trying to assist customers who cannot access their account because their information is incomplete. Applicants' cooperation and patience is appreciated.
