Default Hunting Lake Allatoona or Lake Lanier??

Im interested about hunting these lakes but I do not know much about them(Im new to hunting GA)... Does anyone know the laws of these lakes? Anyone ever hunted these lakes? Anyone interested in trying them out this season?
Thanks,
Conner

I think Lanier may have some specific rules, check the DNR website and regulations.

Also, most folks here are not going to tell you about any good duck waters in an open public forum. Generally if a good duck spot is posted in an open forum it will have a half dozen hunters set up there the next Saturday morning killing "your" ducks

IMO, Your better off finding a swamp, private property or river to hunt than either of those lakes.

Yea I have heard it does but was not sure what they were. I figured a swamp or river would be better but I have not hunted much of Ga so I was not sure on where to go....

I would suggest contacting the local Corp of Engineers office for either lake and speak with them ... & also the local DNR office / officer. Gain the right information and then go for a boat ride & see what you think. Good luck!

I knew it wouldn't take long before questions like this came up. Caver is right, no one here will give you an honest answer about places to hunt. And yes there are special regs.

Well I though it was good advise, I HAVE NEVER HUNTED EITHER LAKE ONLY FISHED THEM. Sorry Caver I dont hunt those lakes. IF I was you look up little river it was a good lookin spot 15 yrs ago when I fished it.
Good luck and besafe

Yes, contact the Corp of Engineers, they do have special regs. No, they don't have many ducks. Yes, they have resident geese, but the hunting is tough because the geese get educated fast. I have tried to hunt both and can't recommend either.

I would check with farmers around Lanier, My 1st goose hunt was up there but not on the lake. It was a draw hunt for Hall Co. You could only kill 1. Farmers are a good place to start.

I cant help you up that way but may be able to point you in a general direction west of here.

That may be because hunters are tired of having tournament bass fishermen useing their decoys for "STRUCTURE FISHING". I've been up there a couple of times and on one Sat hunt, saw 3 different boats fish right beside 1 guys decoys.

That is a fact on any large lake in GA. I have had bass fishermen pull up to my decoys and cast. When I ask them to move they looked at me like I was crazy.
