Even a hunter can be tech-savvy.

The Department of Natural Resources has stepped up its Web presence in recent months, offering online courses and “tweeting” about Georgia wildlife.

The DNR’s Wildlife Resources Division can now be found on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr, according to a news release from the division.

The department uses the sites to send out information about a wide variety of subjects including salamanders and hunting information.

And the agency has also made its Web site useful for dove hunters preparing for the season, which starts at noon Sept. 5.

Anything from required hunter education courses to field forecasts can be found at

The required Georgia hunting license and the free Migratory Bird Hunting license can also be acquired at the site.

The Web site also provides information on dove hunting rules and regulations, public dove fields and conditions.

Similar resources for anglers also are available online through DNR.
