      Wondering if anyone from ‘Bama or anyone who has hunted there could provide me with some info…Just looking for areas to possibly look into, etc.

      Once late bow season is over WI it would be nice to get another week in down south where it wouldn’t be too pricy and the bag limits are liberal…

      Come on down! We have a good acorn crop this year and many opportunities for bowhunters. Public land is available here in one of the four National Forests or one of over a dozen wildlife management areas. Alabama has some geological diversity and you can pick swampy south alabama hardwood bottoms and pine plantations or the hills and hollows of the more mountainous northern end of the state. Outfitters can be found all over the state who can make your dream hunt come true. Find yourself a copy of “Alabama Game and Fish Magaizine” and check out the October and November issues. There are good articles on public hunting opportunities. As far as the management areas go… Scotch Wildlife Management Area near Coffeeville for numbers of deer. Skyline WMA in the northeast corner turns in numbers of trophy whitetails every year… The Bankhead National Forest in northcentral Alabama…. about an hour out of Birmingham and known for big deer. Oakmulgee WMA, just south of Birmingham is hard to beat, all things considered. These areas will be open for bowhunting generally from October 15 till January 31.
