McGraw Ford Wildlife Management Area
McGraw Ford Wildlife Management Area is one of Georgia's many wildlife management areas. In fact, Georgia's Department of Natural Resources is proud to say that there's one within an hour's drive of every Georgian. This WMA is located in northern Georgia and is only an hour's drive from the the big city of Atlanta. The wildlife management area extends over 2,255 acres. Activities to partake in here include fishing, hiking, and hunting. A variety of hunting is available including deer, bear, dove, small game and furbearers.
Unless otherwise posted, fishing is allowed on WMAs according to statewide regulations. A fishing license only is required to fish on WMAs. A WMA license is not required for anglers possessing a valid 1-day, Honorary/Disability, Sportsman or Lifetime License.
The trail system, consisting of un-maintained primitive roads, provides a limited hiking network. If hiking off-trail, please take a map and compass.
Hunting is permitted. Be sure to read up on the hunting season dates and limits in the state of Georgia. Contact Georgia DNR for more information, regulations and seasons.
