SOCIAL CIRCLE, Ga. (AP) -- Georgia wildlife officials will hold public meetings on the state's deer management plan.

The Wildlife Resources Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources plans eight meetings around the state this month.

The agency says white-tailed deer are a great natural resource for the state. About 300,000 deer hunters harvest nearly 400,000 deer each deer season.

The agency uses biological data, public input and objectives identified in its statewide deer management plan, which is developed with the help of public participation. Now the agency wants public comments on the draft of its 10-year deer management plan.

The meetings will be held: in Monroe and Hazlehurst on Aug. 18; in Canton and Leesburg on Aug. 19; in Forsyth and Douglasville on Aug. 20; and in Cleveland and Brunswick on Aug. 21.
