Major Changes & Important Information

Hunting Regulations Icon Alabama Hunting & Fishing

For the 2018-2019 Seasons and Bag Limits

You Will Get a Ticket if You:

  • Hunt Over Bait: Despite false information and rumors, no changes have been made to the state’s baiting law (9-11-244). The practice of hunting game animals by the aid of bait remains illegal in this state and violations of this law will continue to be enforced. See Deer Seasons & Bag Limits for Area Definition Regulation.
  • Fail to Report Harvest: Many warnings were issued by the state’s Conservation Enforcement Officers during the last hunting seasons for violations of the Game Check Regulation. This season any violation of this regulation will result in the issuance of citations which have monetary fines attached to them. See Mandatory for all Deer & Turkey Hunters for further information on the Game Check System.
  • Import Prohibited Deer Parts: It is unlawful for persons hunting outside of Alabama to bring deer, elk, moose or caribou carcasses, hides or antlers back to Alabama from any other location unless all meat has been deboned and skull plates and hides have been thoroughly cleaned of all brain and spinal cord tissue.
