The Coastal region in Georgia

Horse Creek WMA

Horse Creek WMA resides on just over 8,000 acres in Georgia's coastal plains. Home to the world record Largemouth Bass, which weighed in at over 22 pounds and was caught in 1932, Horse Creek offers a unique spot for visitors, hunters, and anglers alike. Hunting opportunities include deer, turkey and small game. 

Alapaha River WMA

The Alapaha River Wildlife Management Area (WMA) encompasses 6,870 acres of state-owned land. The WMA consists of approximately 4,726 acres of upland pine forest and 2,143 acres of bottomland hardwood forest, creek drains, and cypress/gum wetlands. Please do not block gates and keep all vehicles on open improved roads. Roads that are not open to motorized vehicles are posted with a sign stating “No Vehicle Access”. Please remember that all wildlife species, including snakes, are protected unless their take is specifically authorized in the WMA regulations.

Anderson Farms Dove Field

The Anderson Farms Dove Field is 127 acres of dove fields open every Saturday during dove season. Hunting is restricted to mourning doves, and only on marked fields.


Voluntary Public Access Area

Anderson Farms Dove Field is a Voluntary Public Access (VPA) property. Since 2014, the Wildlife Resources Division has been able to enhance and add to its WMA program through additional temporary agreements with private landowners for public hunting opportunities thanks to a USDA grant.

Richmond Hill Fish Hatchery

Located on 87 acres in Bryan County, the Richmond Hill Fish Hatchery includes 38 fish ponds and rearing ponds, as well as three Kid's Fishing Event (KFE) ponds. Donated by Henry Ford in 1936, the hatchery produces bluegill, redear sunfish, largemouth bass, striped bass, and hybrid bass. It has produced over 600 million striped and hybrid bass fry since the statewide propagation program started in 1968.
