Public Meetings Scheduled Regarding Deer Management Plans in Georgia October 29,  2013 WRD New Release
      How many white-tailed deer should we have in Georgia? The answer to this question varies depending on whom you ask. Management of Georgia's white-tailed deer herd can be a challenging and, at times, controversial topic.  According to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division (WRD), the white-tailed deer is Georgia’s most popular game species.  Currently, management of regional and statewide deer populations occurs through hunting (81 percent of all hunters pursue this game species) as facilitated and constrained by laws, regulations and hunter access. However, there are a number of key issues and opportunities directly linked to this resource besides hunting; including wildlife viewing, ecological functions, agricultural damage, and deer-car collisions.
     WRD is requesting your participation in 10 statewide, highly interactive, open house-style public meetings, scheduled throughout early November.  These meetings are one opportunity to allow members of the public to provide input regarding management of white-tailed deer. More Information
