Georgia wildlife officials are seeking public comment on the state's hunting rules. The Department of Natural Resources will hold a meeting Tuesday at the Lanier Technical College Forsyth Conference Center in Cumming. It's one of eight sessions being held across Georgia.
Wildlife officials said hunters can take to the woods for firearm season starting Saturday, Oct. 20. The season runs through Jan. 1 in the northern part of the state and through Jan. 15 in the southern half of Georgia.
Wildlife officials in Georgia are now accepting online applications for quota hunts. The redesigned system allows hunters to apply for permission to hunt deer, alligator, waterfowl, dove and other game.
