Changes for Deer Season

Tuesday, April 12, 2016


The Alabama gun deer season could run 10 extra days in the upcoming season.  According to reports, the state Conservation Advisory Board is proposing that firearms deer season run from November 19 through February 10, 2017. However, the board would also make the state’s Game Check program mandatory. Game Check is a program that is currently voluntary in which licensed and exempt hunters report deer and turkey harvest numbers. Information can be reported by a mobile app, online or through a phone number. The conservation department has extended deer season in the south Alabama into February for the last two years, due to deer in the south entering breeding season later than deer in the north.
