Application deadline for turkey quota hunts extended due to winter storm

By Staff
SOCIAL CIRCLE - With many Georgians experiencing power outages and other challenges this past week, the Georgia Department of Natural Resources' Wildlife Resources Division decided to extend the turkey quota hunt application deadline through 11:59 p.m. on Feb. 19, 2014.<br /> <br /> "We want to give sportsmen and women every opportunity to apply for a turkey quota hunt and we realize that for many people this week, the previous deadline of February 15 was not a priority," said John Bowers, chief of the Game Management Section. "Extending the deadline to the 19th provides a chance for everyone to get their application in for a chance to experience some of the best turkey hunting experiences available in Georgia." <br /> <br /> To apply before the extended deadline, all interested hunters need to complete an online quota application that must be in before midnight Feb. 19. <br /> <br /> How to Apply <br /> <br /> Visit the website www.georgiawildlife.com/hunting/quota. Create a quota hunt account if you do not have one. Make sure that you enter your Social Security Number correctly when creating an account. This ensures the transfer of any priority points from previous seasons to the new account. Keep your email address current and correct to receive quota updates, application submission confirmations and notices about quota hunts. <br /> <br /> For more turkey hunting information, visit www.georgiawildlife.com/hunting/regulations . <br />
