Deer hunting is right around the corner and the Department of Natural Resources is hosting a deer quota hunt.

The state says a quota hunt works like this: they choose specific areas highly populated with deer and you're with a set number of hunters.

The quota is used for conservation, so that rangers can manage the specific area and it's considered a safe experience because it's well-coordinated.

In all, DNR is arranging 27 deer quota hunts throughout Georgia.

One of those quota hunts will be in Forsyth at the Rum Creek Wildlife Management Area on October 31-November 2.

To sign up for the deer quota hunt, apply online by September 1.
