    I am having a heck of a time trying to figure out how deer hunts on WMA's in Georgia work. I'm from NY and our WMA's were open the whole season, just show up. How do I figure this stuff out?!:wow: It seems like unless you own/lease land you're screwed!

    I would swing through the WMA near you and speak to the rangers that are running the area. Q&A with them I am sure they will help. the areas are open but they have event hunts. I did not see anything on the calendar but talking to them is the best way

    Are they open for hunting all season, or only on days when specified?

    generally you need to follow the area regulations for the WMA and for whatever in season. I would start here;

    http://www.eregulations.com/georgia/hunting/general-wma-regulations/

    It answers about 99% of the question and would be way better than stopping a ranger since sometime, they don't even get it right.

    Always read the WMA regs and they trump anything that might be in the State Regs when your on that WMA.

    Good luck and post us on that big 12pt buck that you kill
