A Little More About What We Do
The mission of SWMNGA is to reduce to manageable size and maintain the population of whitetail
deer in several North Georgia counties targeted by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources
(GDNR) for reduction: Dekalb, Gwinnett, Rockdale, Fulton, Forsyth, Hall, Fayette, Henry, Douglas,
Cobb, Walton, Dawson, Barrow,and Cherokee counties. The focus of SWMNGA is to harvest
antlerless deer during the regular hunting season using our allotted big game tags. Acting in
cooperation with a state game biologist and the GA DNR, we will provide individual property owners,
homeowners' associations and other urban dwellers with a year-round, site-specific management
program. Our programs are designed to minimize deer-related damage to ornamentals and
property, reduce deer-vehicle collisions and lower the threat of Lyme disease and other diseases
that can be transmitted by deer or their parasites.
