Hunting in the Augusta Area

Outdoor-minded Augustans are blessed with an abundance of public hunting lands that include a quarter of a million acres on both sides of the Savannah River.

Most sites are within an hour’s drive from downtown and require little more than a hunting license and wildlife management area permits available through the Georgia or South Carolina departments of natural resources.
