Does anyone have any experience hunting Georgia public land? I’ve spent some time hunting ft. Benning, and may resort back to that. Just curios to hear of other people’s successes or failures in the west central Georgia area.

I’ve only hunted North Georgia in the Chattahoochee National Forest. Fun times. Beautiful country but hard hunting to say the least.

Yea after a little research it seems that the deer density is heavier in the south/central areas of Georgia. The more north you get it seems like the more scarce the deer and the harder the terrain.

There are some conservation areas just north of Atlanta that are pretty good. I’ve also heard that there are some good areas in the northwestern portion of the state. I’ve never hunted the southern part of the state. I go to north GA because I have family in the area and they have a place to stay very near the National Forest which for me is a no brainer. The deer density is definitely much lower in the northern elevations. To much of our public lands in the Appalachians are not managed very well. They have tons of old growth oaks that produce tons of acorns but the lack of browse density in these areas tend to limit deer activity and density. They tend to either clear cut or let it go with very minimal mid-story management.
