Baiting

Bait: corn, wheat, other grains, salts, apples, and other feed that has been placed, exposed, deposited, distributed, or scattered so as to constitute a lure, attraction, or enticement to game animals or game birds.

It is unlawful for any person to:

  • Hunt any game animal (except as noted below) or game bird upon, over, around, or near bait.
  • Hunt any area for a period of 10 days following complete removal of all bait.
  • Hunt any big game or feral hog over bait or place bait on any State or Federal managed lands.
  • Place bait in a manner that will cause hunting on an adjacent property to be prohibited.

Taking of any big game over bait is subject to a fine of $5,000 and/or imprisonment up to 12 months.

Exceptions for Deer (Zone Limited):

  • In Harris, Talbot, Taylor, Peach, Houston, Twiggs, Wilkinson, Washington, Jefferson and Burke Counties and all counties south of these, deer may be hunted over or near any bait on private lands provided the hunter has written permission from the landowner.
  • In Troup, Meriwether, Upson, Crawford, Bibb, Jones, Baldwin, Hancock, Glascock, Warren, McDuffie and Richmond Counties and all counties north of these, it is unlawful to hunt deer within 200 yards or within line of sight of bait.

Exceptions for Feral Hogs (Statewide):

  • Feral hogs may be hunted over or near bait on private lands year round in every county provided that the bait is not placed within 50 yards of any property ownership boundary.
  • Placing bait for hogs may make a property (or portion of a property) un-huntable for other species, such as turkeys. Hunters are urged to communicate with others who may hunt other species on or near an area where baiting for deer or hogs is being considered.
