Your Guide to Georgia Quota Deer Hunts [2022]

As of June 1, you can now apply for Georgia’s 2022-2023 quota deer hunts. If you’re not sure what hunts are available, or which you should apply for, I have you covered. Below is the full list of quota deer hunts listed by WMA. This article provides the hunt dates, the number of hunters to be drawn, how many points it may take to draw the hunt based on 2021-2022 drawing results, as well as the hunter and harvest statistics from last season. This information does not include the State Park quota deer hunts, as I will try to cover those in a separate article.

The good news is, regardless of how few preference points you have, there are hunts you can draw for the 2022-2023 Georgia deer season. If you have several points banked, then you should be able to draw just about any deer quota hunt in the state. I cover some of the easiest and hardest hunts to draw later in the article. If you need additional information about how to apply for a Georgia quota deer hunt, that’s provided that at the bottom of the article, as well.

The should be everything you need to make an educated decision on which Georgia quota deer hunt will best suit your situation and goals. Good luck this season!

Hunts You Can Draw With Zero Points

Below are hunts that you may be able to draw with zero preference points based on last year’s drawing. Keep in mind, though, that things could be different this year based on the number of people who apply, and the demand for certain hunts. Just because you could draw the 2nd Clybel hunt with zero points last don’t mean that will be the case this year. If you have points to wager, you can always use them. Any points not needed to draw the hunt will be credited back to your account.

Hunts That Require 3+ Points to Draw

HARDEST TO DRAW: Flint River WMA — both hunts require 5 points to guarantee a draw (based on 2021 data), and 4 points will give you around a 33% chance of being drawn

  • Gaither WMA 1st Hunt — 3 points to guarantee a draw and a decent chance with 2 points
  • Joe Kurz WMA 2nd Hunt — 3 points to guarantee a draw, but 2 will likely do the trick
  • Ossabaw Island 4th Hunt — 3 points to draw

How to Apply for a Georgia Quota Deer Hunt

The Georgia DNR makes the application process for quota hunts fairly simple. You just need to head over to their website and set up an account if you already haven’t. Once you’re logged in, you’ll choose “Apply for a Quota Hunt” at the top of the page, then the apply button for Deer Quota Hunts. At that point, you have to decide whether you are applying as an individual or with a group, then make your hunt selections. I created a short video that is embedded below to walk you through the entire process.

Just keep in mind you’ll be sharing the woods with quite a few other hunters, so be sure to respect one another’s space and focus on the experience more than filling a tag.
