The Georgia Department of Natural Resources’ Wildlife Resources Division has made some recent improvements for hunters on Oaky Woods Wildlife Management Area.

  • There is a new kiosk at the fork coming into the WMA. This makes picking up a map or  a copy of the Hunting Regulations more convenient if you’re not stopping by the check station.  This was completed for an Eagle Scout project with the Boy Scouts of America.


  • The cut-through road has been re-opened for the first time in nearly a decade …
