Deer Season Overview
This section is provided as a guide to the hunting season. Contact your local District Office with questions (Wildlife & Freshwater Fisheries District Offices). See our website at www.outdooralabama.com for more hunting & fishing information.
All persons hunting on private lands of another must have written permission from the landowner with few exceptions. Hunting by the aid of bait is illegal in Alabama. All required hunting and fishing licenses must be in possession when hunting or fishing. A deer and turkey harvest record must be in possession every time a person is hunting deer or turkey.
Consult management area leaflet for special rules and regulations and seasons before hunting state wildlife management areas.
Any party controlling hunting rights may, by choice, be more restrictive on
season and bag limits than those stipulated in this section.
Regulations in red are new this year.
