18 Georgia WMAs You Can Turkey Hunt All Season – No Quota Required

Even if you didn’t get drawn for one of Georgia’s turkey quota hunts, you can still knock the dust off your shotgun and turkey vest and enjoy some spring turkey hunting action! Fortunately for Georgia hunters, there are plenty of Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) that are open all season long for turkey hunting. All you have to do is sign in online, or at the WMA check station, and head to the woods.

Keep in mind that many of these WMAs are going to be crowded, especially on the weekends. If you can get out during the week, or wait until later in the season, you’ll have a lot less company. Even if you just hit the WMA a little later in the morning, you may have the place all to yourself.

So here are 18 of the WMAs you can check out this spring. These are all WMAs where 10 or more turkeys were harvested last season. That’s not to say they’re the best. Sometimes the higher harvest is due to the sheer size of the WMA or the higher hunting pressure. But those harvest numbers do indicate that there are good, huntable numbers of turkeys on each of these WMAs.

For a full list of WMAs open for the spring turkey season, pick up a copy of the Georgia DNR’s 2021-2022 Hunting Regulations.
