SQUIRREL SEASON: SOCIAL CIRCLE — Squirrel hunting across the state of Georgia begins Aug. 15 and lasts through Feb. 28. Hunters can pursue both gray and fox squirrels. The maximum daily bag limit is 12 per hunter.
“Prior to the successful restoration of white-tailed deer, pursuing squirrels in the fall became a significant cultural hunting tradition in Georgia,” said John Bowers, assistant chief of the Game Management Section. “Squirrel hunting provides one of our best opportunities to introduce youth to hunting,”
In terms of the number of hunters and harvest, squirrels are the second most pursued small game species in Georgia, behind doves. Georgia’s wildlife management areas offer access to nearly one million acres of hunting opportunity for only $19 a year, and squirrel hunting is allowed on WMAs at specified times during the statewide squirrel season. Hunters are advised to check the current hunting regulations for specific WMA dates and info (www.gohuntgeorgia.com/hunting/regulations).
