Quota Hunts

Hunting Regulations Icon Georgia Hunting

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

An applicant is awarded one priority point if 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. You may wager as many points as you have when applying for a quota hunt, not exceeding the lowest held by any group member. Only the number of points needed to win the hunt will be taken if you are selected. Visit the quota hunt page at gohuntgeorgia.com to determine how many priority points may be 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.
