Georgia DNR Passes Deer Baiting Law

Deer Baiting Law in GeorgiaDid you know a new deer baiting law was passed on June 27, 2018? The DNR Board voted to approve a DNR proposal that legalizes hunting deer over supplemental feed with no distance restriction on all private land in Georgia. The new regulation will be in effect for this coming 2018-2019 deer season in Georgia.

The DNR voted specifically to move the Northern Zone line to include only the Chattahoochee National Forest in extreme north Georgia — baiting deer is illegal regardless on all public land in Georgia — so this move makes baiting deer legal on all private land in the state. 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.
