it comes to whitetail hunting. The state not only boasts a robust deer herd, its hunting
quality is second to none. Some interesting stats just revealed by the state’s game
department are beyond impressive. For example, the average Georgia deer hunter in
kills 1.5 deer per season, and it takes the average hunter just 14 days to get a deer.
This is incredible when compared to 1980 when the state’s average deer hunter killed
0.4 deer per year, and it took the average hunter 31 days to harvest a deer. While
some hunters pine for the “good ol’ days,” I’d have to offer that those days are here
