Best Animal to Hunt
As mentioned earlier, Alabama has a natural diversity when it comes down to animals spread across the 1+ million acres.
The best animal to hunt in Alabama is whitetail deer where about 200,000 hunters harvest more than 300,000 whitetail every single year.
Other hunting possibilities are a wild turkey, feral hogs, rabbits, squirrel, doves, and a couple of other species.
