I’m done telling people a good thing. I would look at North Alabama.

When you ask a question like that, more than half the answers will be attempts to send you away from where they are hunting. No one in their right mind would want to draw attention to their area if it’s any good. The best way to mess up a good thing is to tell someone about it.

Learned that the hard way multiple times over the years. Some hunters will run slam over you to get what you got especially a turkey hunter. Some turkey hunters woukd run over their own mama to get to a bird!! generally dont tell my friends even my good friends of deer or turkey kills and is one of the reasons i never put my pic on here and i talk way more on here than i do anywhere else - i keep my mouth shut

But u guys up north get way better deer pics than me or my buddies around here do

The place we have is the best hunting I’ve ever had in Alabama. However I’ve only ever hunted 3 places in Alabama. One place was overrun by dogs, other place I was a guest and it was shot out and the place we have now. If there was one place that I could choose to hunt it would be with Jason and Brian at Hollis Farms. I like the way those guys manage their properties.

If I could go back to 1990, I would choose the swamps of Wilcox County and specifically Lower Peach Tree. Deer were numerous as the stars in the sky and some grew huge racks but were very hard to kill.

Looking for hunting land today in Alabama, I also would pick North Alabama as far North as I could get. Lease prices are not nearly as high as southern leases and there are tons of smaller private tracts here where folks don't shoot does, only bucks. It is common now to see deer at any time of day in the row-cropped land as well as crossing the main roads. Numbers are pretty good, but there is a genuine concern over CWD in the Northwest counties. It is supposed to be a non-baiting zone but many homeowners have feeders and enjoy watching deer in their backyards-Florence, AL comes to mind. Folks just love watching them and not shooting them. There are some huge deer in many of the subdivisions there.

If I could pick any where to hunt, it would be in IL. The leases are in general easier to get than here and most times cheaper per acre. The one buck only harvest lets a lot of good deer walk and make it to next year. I personally have laid eyes on 150" deer there and always see good deer there when I go. Beautiful country and the people are great to talk with.

I’d take one of those subdivisions lol. I know one where a guy I know lives. He had a 180ish hitting his feeder daily. Tons of 140-150s. He has a little over 5 acres that lays next to land that is unimprovable at best. He keeps joking he’s gonna get his crossbow out. 😝 He had a good friend that own deer step so he knows what big deer look like.

As far as a club and kindness no object. I’d look at soil maps and then go from there.

Whichever county that has the best soil had the best potential to grow big bucks. My vote would go to North Sumter county.

I think there’s good deer in just about every county in Alabama, just depends on what will make you happy. Some folks it’s hunting the biggest deer in the state, some folks it’s being able to see deer every sit, and some folks it’s purely location to their home. Whatever meets your goals and is affordable for the budget you’ve allocated is the best place to be.

Neighbors and local management practices are far more important than location.

Teacher One you took me back to my early deer hunting days. I got to hunt with a buddy who’s family had 180 acres in lower Peach Tree next door to Scotch lumber co land. I think that was about 8000 acres at the time .This was in the 70’s and 80’s. We took some bigguns back in the day. Turkey hunting was awesome ! My buddies folks eventually passed and the 5 kids split up and sold the property. Stupid sob’s . I ‘ll never forget those days.Just damn!

Depends on what you want. Numbers of deer, trophies, or a mix of the two. For numbers, many places fit that bill in AL. Just find the rural areas in S.Central such as Crenshaw Co. They have a ton of deer, for trophies, the Sipsey area always puts out some good ones, and I've heard Jackson Co. has some. For the best mix of trophies and numbers I think you have to look at the Blackbelt Counties. Now that is just a generality based on my experience and experience of others, but each large tract may be different based on usage and management practices.


Lord, please help us get our nation straightened out.

This area was my first experience with tremendous numbers of deer. Back then I was a bowhunter and I killed deer every time I set foot on the place we had. We were right on the Alabama River and we had great numbers, great deer, ducks, and alligators to keep you on the lookout! I would love to have owned that place.
