COMMISSIONER’S MESSAGE
For as far back as I can remember, I have always felt at home in the outdoors. Growing up in North
Georgia, I felt extremely blessed to live in a place with such diverse natural resources. After I first
experienced the thrill of the hunt at as a young boy, I found my passion for being a sportsman
and knew I wanted to hunt all of Georgia’s game animals. Today, I am proud to still call Georgia
my home and am thankful to live in the best state in the country for outdoor adventures.
Georgia’s hunters make up one big, unified family of which I am honored to be a member.
Georgia’s sportsmen and women are a community dedicated to preserving our state’s natural
resources for future generations. You are the original conservationists and spend the most time,
money, and effort of anyone in the state to protect and conserve wildlife. On behalf of the entire
Department of Natural Resources, I’d like to thank you for what you do.
Furthermore, your overwhelming support for House Bill 208 has had tremendous benefits for
Georgia wildlife conservation. DNR has received additional appropriations totaling $13,000,000
because of HB 208 that will directly be put towards improving access, enhancing opportunities,
and bolstering conservation efforts. This means DNR will be opening additional miles of road
through Wildlife Management Areas, planting more acres of food plots, building additional
artificial reefs along the coast, and growing larger trout --and these are just a few of the projects
we are excited to get to work on in the coming months! Furthermore, our Law Enforcement
Division is on track to fulfill our long term pledge of hiring an additional 40 Game Wardens,
many of them in counties that currently do not have one. None of this would have been possible
without your support and dedication to our state’s natural resources.
Our state’s natural beauty is a boundless reflection of the wonder and splendor of God’s creation.
Our sportsmen and women such as you make our state the unique and special place that it is. I
Commissioner Williams and son-in-law, am proud to have built my life and career in the greatest state in the country. Happy trails this

QUOTA HUNTS
QUOTA HUNT - A hunt that allows a predetermined number of hunters to participate. A
QUOTA is used to conserve the natural resources (wildlife and their habitats) and to provide
a high quality hunting experience.

PRIORITY POINTS
An applicant is awarded one priority point if not selected for the QUOTA hunt. Each person
listed on a group application that is not selected is awarded a priority point. Priority points
may be used on an application to increase the likelihood of selection. You may wager as many
points as you have when applying for a quota hunt, not exceeding the lowest held by any group
member. Only the number of points needed to win the hunt will be taken if you are selected.
Visit the quota hunt page at gohuntgeorgia.com to determine how many priority points may
be required to get selected for your favorite hunt.

APPLICATION DEADLINES
The official application deadlines are 11:59 p.m. (EST) on the dates listed in the tables below.
No applications will be accepted after the deadline.
