Oconee Wildlife Management Area
Oconee Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is a 4,800-acre area located in Greene, Hancock, and Putnam Counties in east-central Georgia. Typical of Piedmont landscapes, the area consist largely of rolling hills interspersed with creeks. It also borders Lake Oconee and Lake Sinclair created by the impoundment of the Oconee River. Habitat types include mixed pine/hardwoods, pure hardwood, and planted pine stands. Wildlife openings consist of fallow fields, planted food plots, and timber clear-cuts. The area offers a series of managed waterfowl impoundments that offer both quota and walk-in waterfowl hunts. It also has managed dove fields for both quota and walk-in hunting opportunities. The main hunting opportunities here are: deer, turkey, rabbit, squirrel, raccoon, dove (by quota only on opening day), and waterfowl (on managed impoundments by quota).
