Archery season for deer opens this Saturday September 12th across the state of Georgia. 

The Dept. of Natural Resources operates an archery ranger to help get hunted sighted in at the Rocky Mountain Public Fishing area in the Big Texas Valley between Rome and Summerville. 

Hunters on the Berry and Crockford-Pigeon Mountain Wildlife Management Areas will share the acreage with samll game hunters.  Wildlife Biologist David Gregory says he does not foresee any conflict between the small game hunters, armed with firearms, and the bowhunters.  

If you need information about hunting regulations, contact the DNR office in Calhoun at 706-624-1161.
