Join archery-only deer hunt for youth or disabled hunters at Allatoona


Registration opened Monday for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' archery-only deer hunt for disabled hunters at Allatoona Lake.

The youth hunt will run Dec. 17 and 18, and the hunt solely for hunters "confined to a wheelchair" will be Dec. 19 and 20.

Hunting blinds provided by McKinney Campground must be reserved.

Only bow-hunters 15 and younger are allowed to participate in the youth hunt. A parent or guardian with a valid Georgia Big Game license must accompany them.

Powder Springs will allow limited bow hunting of deer

The disabled hunt is also open to all Purple Heart recipients. Each hunter must possess a valid Georgia Big Game license. A non-hunting assistant may accompany each disabled hunter.

Reservations for both will be taken by phone or in person Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. through Nov. 4. The spots will be filled by lottery.

Any questions should be directed to the Allatoona Lake Operations Project Management Office in Cartersville.
