Did you hear about the new law on June 27, 2018, that passed about deer baiting in Georgia? Hunting deer over supplemental feed is now legal statewide in Georgia on private land. However, baiting deer is illegal on all public land in Georgia. The new regulation will be in effect for this coming 2018-2019 deer season in Georgia.
Prior to passing this law, the southern zone was the only region allowed to hunt deer over supplemental feed with no distance restriction. Now the north zone is able to deer bait that includes the Chattahoochee National Forest.
