Georgia Quota Hunt Applications Available
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division (WRD) reminds hunters that June 1, 2007 was opening day of the 2007-2008 quota hunt application period. Successful quota hunt applications are selected solely from the online application pool (paper applications are no longer accepted), so interested hunters must apply online through their personal accounts on the WRD website, www.gohuntgeorgia.com.
"The quota hunt application period is always an exciting and busy time of year. We strive to make the application process as efficient and customer-friendly as possible. The best thing that hunters and others with a WRD online account can do is to keep their e-mail address current," says WRD Assistant Chief of Game Management John Bowers. "By utilizing applicant e-mail addresses for quota hunt correspondence, including sending application status alerts and answering applicant questions, we have made great strides to improve customer service."
To be eligible for quota hunt drawings, applicants must ensure that they have a valid online account and must apply prior to midnight as follows: July 31 for alligator quota hunts; September 1 for deer quota hunts; October 15 for waterfowl quota hunts; and February 15, 2008 for turkey quota hunts.
Hunters who have applied in years past or those who have recently completed a hunter education course or purchased a Georgia hunting license via the WRD website may have pre-existing accounts with which to apply and must login to their accounts to begin the application process.
Interested persons without pre-existing accounts should visit www.gohuntgeorgia.com and select "Hunting," then "Quota Hunts and Information" to create a new account and submit applications online.
Upon completion of the selection process, all applicants will receive a status notification e-mail and will also be able to login to their accounts to view their updated status. In addition, complete lists of chosen participants will be available at www.gohuntgeorgia.com .
