That's a Wrap! Another Successful Hunting Season!

The HCWA wrapped up another successful Hunting Season with four hunts spread over the Fall of 2019 and Winter of 2020. 

The two Youth Deer Hunts and Veteran’s Hunt, to honor those who have served in the U.S. Military, were held at the HCWA Walnut Creek Land Application System (LAS) site, which includes more than 1,000 acres of protected green space. These hunts help the HCWA maintain proper land management and wildlife habitat, as directed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

The Waterfowl Fundraiser Hunt on Jan. 18-19, at the Cubihatcha Outdoor Center, raised money for student educational programs of the Henry County Outdoor Education Partnership.

“This was a nice event, and we enjoyed hunting on this beautiful land,” says Steven Cole, who was drawn for the first Youth Deer Hunt with his son Talon. “We really appreciate the Water Authority for hosting us.”

Cary Phillips echoed those sentiments by noting there are no better hunts anywhere. “The Water Authority takes good care of you, with great stands and hospitality” says Phillips. What else could you ask for? If you get drawn for this hunt, you can’t miss it.”

The drawings for the annual HCWA Youth Hunts are held typically between June and August, so you can join the applicants who register for these free events at that time.
