Dear Season Changes in Alabama

The Alabama deer season could run 10 extra days in the upcoming season.

The state Conservation Advisory Board is proposing that this year's deer season runs from November 19th through February 10th 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.

The conservation department has extended deer season in South Alabama into February for the last two years, due to deer in the South entering breeding season later than deer in the North.
