Hunting permits now available for purchase at West Point

Press Release 

WEST POINT, GA - The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers at West Point Project announced that hunting permits for the 2010/2011 season are now available for purchase.

The permits are required, in addition to state hunting licenses, to hunt on lands managed by the Corps at West Point Project. Each permit consists of a card listing the permit holder's name and address, as well as special regulations that apply in addition to state game laws.

A map depicting the lands available for hunting and listing weapons restrictions, along with a data sheet to report game harvested, is also included.

The fee for the permit is $20, which covers the administrative costs associated with the program, such as the cost to print the permits and maps.

The hunting map was not revised for the 2010/2011 season; therefore, previous year's hunting maps are valid. There are approximately 6,000 acres of hunting lands available in Georgia and 2,000 in Alabama.

West Point Lake Hunting Permits do not apply to the West Point Wildlife Management Area, totaling some 10,000 acres and managed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

Permits are now being sold, and may be purchased at the West Point Lake Visitors' Center, by telephone at 706-645-2937 and using a major credit card, or by mail at the address listed below:
