Santa is taking a break from his holiday preparations at the North Pole and traveling down to Perry for some fishing at the Go Fish Education Center before his big night! Do you want to fish with Jolly Old Saint Nick? Then make plans to visit Go Fish...
Georgia’s wildlife and natural habitats don’t depend on St. Nick. When it comes to conservation, these wild creatures and wild places depend largely on you. Here's how you can help this holiday season.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division is excited to announce the addition of more than 1,390 acres, made up of three tracts of land, to the already 4,800-acre Oconee Wildlife Management Area in Greene and Hancock counties.
This holiday season, the Georgia Wildlife Resources Division is offering gifts that will please hunters, anglers and other wildlife enthusiasts, and benefit wildlife -- lifetime licenses and an annual GORP.
More than 300,000 hunters pursue the most popular game animal in Georgia, the white-tailed deer. As a reminder to hunters, there was a regulation change in the number of available days to take deer of either sex depending on the type of equipment used and the area of your hunt, beginning Dec. 1.
Members of the Georgia Bobwhite Technical Team, representing 15 conservation and/or land management organizations, recently turned out in support of a Memorandum of Agreement at the Go Fish Education Center in Perry, GA as a continued commitment to the recovery of bobwhite quail and other early successional habitat dependent species, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division.
How many white-tailed deer should we have in Georgia? The answer to this question varies depending on whom you ask. Management of Georgia's white-tailed deer herd can be a challenging and, at times, controversial topic.
Still in need of a hunter education course before deer season is over? The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division offers ways to make that happen: an 8-hour online or CD course followed by a 2-hour review or the 10-hour traditional classroom course.
