Wildlife Management Area Check-in/Check Out
Alabama Hunting & Fishing
In an effort to gain more information on the use of our Wildlife Management Areas (WMA) and provide better services to our hunters, the Division will be introducing a WMA Check In/Out function as an added feature on the Outdoor Alabama mobile app during the 2020-2021 hunting season. This follows the introduction of the physical “Daily Permit” required on certain WMAs. The implementation of the Daily Permit was an effort to gain more information about WMA hunter use, species hunted, and number of species harvested. This can now be accomplished by using the Outdoor Alabama app to check in/out and indicate that day’s hunting information or by using the original physical daily permits. A paper copy of the WMA Map Permit will not be required for those using the WMA Check In App but those hunters not using the WMA Check In App will be required to have a signed copy of the WMA Map Permit. During the 2020-2021 season, the use of Daily Permits and the Outdoor Alabama App WMA Check-In/Check-Out will be available at all WMAs, but will only be mandatory for Choccolocco, Coosa, Hollins, Jackson County, Little River, Mallard Fox Creek, Martin Community Hunting Area, James D. Martin Skyline, and Swan Creek WMAs. Beginning in the 2021-2022 hunting season, this will be a requirement at all WMAs. Your participation will assist the Division in improving our services to all Wildlife Management Area hunters.
