(WRDW/WAGT) — Over 152,000 hunters picked up their bows and killed around 65,000 deer last year in Georgia (see 2017-2018 harvest summary below). Archery season officially opens Saturday, September 8th, 2018. Hunters will need a hunting license, big game license, and current deer harvest record (free) to legally hunt public and private land in Georgia. Licenses can be bought online at georgiawildlife.com, by phone 1-800-366-2661, or a license agent. Hunters are no longer required to buy a WMA license, GORP license, or deer dog license. If you harvest a deer it must be reported using Georgia game check. To report harvested deer you can use the Outdoors GA app, gooutdoorsgeorgia.com, or call 1-800-366-2661. Hunters are allowed to harvest 10 anterless deer and no more than 2 antlered deer during the season. One of the antlered deer must have a minimum of four points, one inch or longer, on one side of the antlers. Hunters in the CSRA are allowed to kill either sex during archery season, but regulations change during muzzleloader and modern firearm seasons depending on the county.
