New deer hunting season opens November 20

SHARE NOW

TALLADEGA COUNTY, Ala. – Clean off your favorite hunting rifles, because deer season is right past your nearest tree line.

This Saturday, Nov. 20, a host of thrill-seekers and nature-adventurers alike will hit the open road to find their nearest public hunting zones as deer hunting season officially opens.

The most popular game animal hunted in the state is the white-tailed deer with over four million hours of man-hunting accumulated every year by Alabama hunters. To legally hunt throughout the state, one must have a game hunting license, a wildlife management license, and a harvest record. You must also report a harvested deer within two days of game hunting.

There are five hunting zones in Alabama. For Talladega County, which is entirely part of Zone A, the season begins Saturday and runs until Feb. 10 of next year. However, you can only hunt any fully-grown deer from Dec. 11 to Jan. 1. Only antlered bucks can be hunted before and after those dates.

If you are hunting on privately-owned land, either sex is open game throughout the entire season. The buck limit per hunter is three per season and one per day.
