NOTICE: Check the kiosk map when you arrive to Di-Lane WMA.
Early in the summer, Di-Lane contracted with an herbicide spraying crew to treat understory woody vegetation following a timber thinning there. This crew of 10–15 men spray vegetation with backpack sprayers. Di-Lane believes the project will continue through archery deer season. Maps with the specific area that the crew will be working in will be posted at the Di-Lane check station so that archery hunters can avoid having their hunt disturbed by the herbicide spraying crew. The areas being sprayed are open to hunting, but will have many people walking through and working in the locations indicated on the map.
Managed for early successional habitat with emphasis on bobwhite quail, Di-Lane WMA is 8,100 acres of federally owned land. Open to seasonal hunting, outdoor enthusiasts can find plenty to do on this WMA. Hunting opportunities include deer, turkey, small game and furbearers, dove, quail and waterfowl.
As part of a University of Georgia and Georgia Department of Natural Resources cooperative research project, rabbit season on Di-Lane WMA will be different than in past years. Rabbit hunting will take place on designated areas of the property and on certain days of the week.
The map (seen below) indicates which areas of the property may be hunted on what days. Areas will be marked with color-coded signs on the property, and rabbit hunters are to sign in at the check station prior to hunting. An additional map with directions, as well as brochures will be available at the check station.
- Area 1 (red) will be closed 7 days/week
- Area 2 (yellow) will be open Monday, Thursday, Sunday
- Area 3 (green) will be open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Sunday
These changes are being made due to ongoing research with Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources at The University of Georgia, which is investigating the relationship between rabbit hunting and Northern Bobwhite populations on the property. We want to thank you all for your cooperation and understanding, as you all help make our research possible!
