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

Hunters are awarded one priority point if they are 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. Visit the quota hunt page at www.gooutdoorsgeorgia.com to determine how many priority points are 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.
