ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia wildlife officials are aiming to track the numbers of turkeys taken by hunters with some high-tech help.
This weekend is the opening of turkey hunting season in Georgia.
There is a three-gobbler limit per hunter in Georgia during the season which runs through May 15.
The Athens Banner-Herald reports (http://bit.ly/2mBSDTM ) that hunters will be able to use their cellphones to record their kills at the scene by using an app put in place by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.
