Good Old Days of Deer Hunting

Good Old Days of Deer Hunting

The good old days of deer hunting in Georgia are right now!  In 1970, Georgia deer hunters hunted an average of 41 days to harvest a deer compared to only 13 days in 2001!

As a result of Georgia's increasing doe days and bag limits, the harvest of does has steadily increased over the last 25 years (see Figure 1).

At the same time the harvest of quality bucks has increased while the harvest of younger bucks has decreased (see Figure 2).

Through DNR's proactive deer management program, Georgia hunters are leading the nation in doe harvest.  Together, DNR and Georgia hunters, are producing a healthy, quality deer herd for present and future generations of Georgians to enjoy.
