Deer hunting season is coming to an end, and the Department of Natural Resources says it's been a good season.

Every day officers check to make sure all hunters are licensed, and they're following regulations. They've received a few complaints about hunting without permission or hunting at night.

Since the season ends on Sunday, they're expecting a big turnout within the next few days.

"This weekend is a holiday weekend for the state of Georgia,” Eric White, Department of Natural Resources, said. “You're going to have people that could possibly have extra days off this weekend, and they'll be taking advantage of that."

Hundreds of hunters participated this season right here in Southwest Georgia.
