An array of wildlife suitable for hunting may be found on the national forest. Hunting is a seasonal activity, and the rules are simple: Follow the state laws and regulations pertaining to hunting, including seasons, dates and licensing. Wildlife and fisheries management within the boundary of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forests is a cooperative effort between the USDA Forest Service and the Wildlife Resources Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (DNR). That's because the federal government owns the land and is responsible for its management while the State of Georgia owns the animals and is responsible for their management. This means the Forest Service manages wildlife habitat and the DNR manages the animals by setting hunting seasons, bag limits, and other such rules and regulations.
