Robert Bentley, Governor

Alabama is one of the premier states in the nation for fishing and hunting. An abundance of forested land, water resources and scenic landscapes makes Alabama a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts.

The wealth of hunting and fishing opportunities and the abundance of wildlife species are the direct results of hunters and anglers supporting the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and its programs. Your purchase of a hunting or fishing license directly funds conservation in the state of Alabama and, along with federal matching funds, is the only source of revenue for the Alabama Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries.

A constant challenge the division faces is how to nurture an interest in the outdoors in Alabama’s youth. Make an effort this year to teach a child an outdoor skill such as fishing or hunting. When adults and children share enjoyable experiences together, the generation gap narrows. Be sure to emphasize to your children − and others whom you are mentoring in outdoor skills − the importance of following safety rules. Start early to instill in them an awareness of the consequences that can result from careless behavior. Your consistent practice of safety measures will teach by example and reinforce your instructions to be safe in the outdoors.

Outdoor adventures are not limited to just hunting and fishing. Outdoor lovers in Alabama have many opportunities to hit the trail, go camping, watch for birds and other non-game wildlife, boat in rivers and lakes, camp or just relax and take in the beauty of nature.

The outdoor experiences that you share with others will build lasting memories and a firm foundation for a lifetime of future adventures.

Regulations in red are new this year.
