Six State Parks to Briefly Close for Deer Quota Hunts
Throughout the year, the Department of Natural Resources schedules quota hunts on various species. By managing population levels this way, the Department ensures the health of our state's wildlife.
Most quota hunts are conducted within wildlife management areas, but each fall a few state parks are selected as sites for deer quota hunts. This year 6 parks will host hunts, with each closing to the public for 2-3 days.
The following state parks will close on the indicated dates:
Hard Labor Creek State Park
Panola Mountain State Park
Red Top Mountain State Park
Tugaloo State Park
Chattahoochee Bend State Park
Richard B. Russell State Park
Due to the popularity of these hunts, hunters must enter a lottery for a chance to participate. All hunting spaces are filled for this year.
