Deer Hunting Season

It’s deer hunting season again and the Georgia forests are loaded with deer. Without getting into a debate let me just say that you don’t have to be a hunter to appreciate the value of hunting season. If you are open to a discussion using logic and reason then I suggest that you read Right to Hunt vs Animal Rights. With that out of the way I would like to say thank you to all the Georgia hunters and the folks that travel to Georgia for hunting season.

From South Georgia the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Georgia hunters enjoy some of the best sporting locations in the country. While South Georgia can give you the feel of a Florida hunt it just isn’t as rough on us old folks as the Florida marsh and swamp areas. And North Georgia has some fantastic wildlife without the hassle of hiking for hours up the mountain like you find out west and further north. Most of the mountain land in North Georgia around Ellijay and Blue Ridge is accessible by jeep or 4×4 truck so you can spend more time tracking and setting up than you do hiking and lugging gear. If you are into the adventure including long hikes and camping Georgia has plenty of opportunity to do just that but at my age I like that it’s a choice.

November and December are firearms hunting seasons for South and North Georgia with slightly different dates for the end of October and the beginning of January. As hunters take to the woods they get a big dose of the American outdoors. Even if you aren’t a hunter you probably know one and I can almost guarantee you that he would be willing to introduce you to the sport, even if you don’t plan on firing a rifle. There is a lot more to hunting than the kill. I know some old timers that rarely pull the trigger any more but you will never stop them from enjoying the freedom, peace, camaraderie, the skill and sport of tracking, and the feast after the hunt.

This article was posted by Big Rack Deer Scents. We hope we have opened your eyes to the wonderful sport of hunting that has been an American Family tradition for hundreds of years. There is a decline in the number of hunters each year so drop those iPods and cell phones for one day this winter. Head out with one of your friends that is an experienced hunter or hire a guide and I think you will be hooked, for the rest of your life. Happy hunting!

Warning! Make sure you know the seasonal deer hunting limits.
