Alabama offers an abundance of opportunities for outdoor recreation. As a native Alabamian, I understand the importance of hunting and fishing to Alabama residents, visitors and our state’s economy. Outdoor related activity has an annual economic impact in Alabama of almost $3 billion. More than 1.7 million people enjoy our great outdoors, which means jobs for many Alabamians.

Our state is renowned for white-tailed deer and Eastern wild turkey hunting. Small game such as rabbits and squirrels draw young and old into the woods with a long season and large bag limits.

Anglers can hook big largemouth bass all the way from the Mobile-Tensaw Delta to the tributaries of the Tennessee River in north Alabama. Bass fishing is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg when it comes to angling opportunities for freshwater species like crappie, bream and catfish.

Conserving and nurturing our wildlife and natural resources is not easy. The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR) can only accomplish that task through the support of people who buy hunting and fishing licenses in Alabama. The ADCNR derives its operating budget only from license sales and federal matching funds.

Please remember that all hunters are required to report their deer and turkey harvests to the Game Check Reporting System. The data gathered through Game Check provides much-needed information so prudent, common-sense, management decisions can be made. Their goal, and mine, is to ensure Alabama continues to be a mecca for hunters for many years to come.

Alabama is a special place. It is a great place to raise a family, start a business and to enjoy life. I hope your time in Alabama helps you see what Sweet Home Alabama really means.

Thank you for your support.

Acting Commissioner
