Turkey Season Opens Saturday

Turkey Season Opens Saturday

The turkey hunting season opens Saturday, March 24, a Georgia Department of Natural Resources news release says.

To go turkey hunting, you'll need a valid hunting license and big game license to legally hunt turkeys in Georgia. If you're on a Wildlife Management Area, you'll also need a WMA license. You can buy licenses online, at a retail license vendor or by phone at 1-800-366-2661.

If planning to hunt on private land, you'll need permission from the landowner first.

There is a limit to turkey hunting: only male turkeys can be hunted and the season bag limit is three turkeys per hunter. 

Here are some turkey hunting safety precautions to study up on before going on the hunt:

Hancock, Putnam Counties January Unemployment Rates

Hancock, Putnam Counties January Unemployment Rates

Hancock County's unemployment rate for January was 17 percent, the Georgia Department of Labor news release says.

Putnam County's unemployment rate in January was 11.2 percent.

That's compared to metro Macon's 9.9 percent unemployment rate for January.

But that's still less than a year ago, at 10.5 percent.

Sam Hall with the Georgia Department of Labor says the increases should not be cause for concern because seasonal workers leaving temporary holiday jobs play a major factor in the variation.
