from what I understand it goes by the lumpkin county regs, but never been able to 100% prove this... may want to try to contact DNR to confirm dates, regs etc.

this is where it gets confusing. Page 61 on the regs look for Chattahooche National forest. http://www.eregulations.com/georgia/hunting/pageflip/

Now, from what I understand, the lower end of Lumpkin County is ran by the US Forest Service (gainsville # 770-297-3000) you can try to get more detailed info from them.

The northern part of the county is (from what I heard, not 100% sure) is managed by different regs.
