Wildlife Management Areas
Sign in for your WMA sign-in hunts online! Though we will continue to offer paper-based sign-in sheets for these WMA hunts, hunters need only to sign in online OR on site. The online sign-in does not apply to quota hunts.
The Wildlife Management Area (WMA) system encompasses more than 90 huntable tracts throughout Georgia. You will find that there is at least one WMA within an hour of you. The WMA system provides hunters nearly one million acres of huntable land at an unbeatable price. Check out the current hunting regulations for a WMA near you. We also offer a host of specialty hunts including ladies-only hunts and adult-child hunts. Learn more about WMA hunting opportunities near you.
GRANT PROPOSAL: Georgia Public Access for Wildlife Recreation: Taking comments now on this statewide grant project.
The primary purpose of Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) is to support wildlife conservation in the state and allow public access to hunting, fishing and other outdoor recreational activities at the bargain price of a WMA license or a Georgia Outdoor Recreational Pass, which ranges from $3.50 for a 3-day pass to $20.00 for a year.
These areas are a great benefit to the state as a whole and the counties where they are located. WMAs are an economic engine that bring revenue to the area by drawing frequent visitation. This study paints a clear picture of the economic benefits of having Wildlife Management Areas from a state and county level.
Report poaching and wildlife violations. You can receive a cash reward if your tip leads to an arrest—even if you wish to remain anonymous.
