SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia is setting aside a week in October for deer hunters who use bows, muzzle-loading rifles and other primitive firearms.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources says the designated deer season for primitive weapons starts Oct. 13. Hunters are allowed to harvest up to 10 deer without antlers and no more than two deer with antlers.
The DNR says the primitive weapons season proved popular last year, when 50,000 hunters harvested more than 14,000 deer.
All participants in the primitive weapons season must have a valid Georgia hunting license. The deer season for modern firearms comes later in the fall.
