Alabama is loaded with outdoor adventure opportunities for hunting, fishing and shooting. Global Outfitters strives to maintain a database of all Alabama locations to enjoy natural resources the state offers through lodges, guides, charters and shooting ranges. In June of 2013 we posted the latest listing of lodges in Alabama that offer hunting and freshwater fishing. You are also able to download this same listing with a break down of activities by outfitter lodge offering whitetail deer, hog, quail, dove, duck and fishing activities.
GO also sponsors the Alabama Adventure Lodge Cooperative, a listing of Alabama outfitters maintaining a code of ethics, while striving to present their operations transparently through media. Global Outfitter has conducted a site survey at each of these locations.
Global Outfitters Outdoor University (GOOU) has partnered with Bass Pro Shops new 1 Source website to produce videos teaching skills and techniques on the water and in the field. Some of Alabama's top outfitters participate providing a window into the knowledge and skills that set them apart.
Chattokee Lodge in Northeast Alabama offers Whitetail Deer hunts, turkey, duck, goose quail and dove. Owner, Harlan Starr, has been instrumental in helping produce educational videos on gundog training, turkey hunting and land habitat.
The Black Belt region offers that largest number of outfitters. When in west Alabama give Water Valley Lodge , or Leavelwood, the opportunity to host your adventure. Water Valley Lodge also specializes in whitetail deer, wild hog, turkey and quail hunts, while Leavelwood offers world class bass fishing, whitetail deer, turkey and quail. Both owners, Trey Montgomery at Leavellwood, and Jake Utsey of Water Valley Lodge have helped produce educational videos on plot management and managing lakes for monster bass.

Here is a question I get regularly, "Recently, our club property was visited by a state DNR deer biologist. We invited him to look at our property to advise us on why we were never seeing any of the mature bucks residing on the property, except at night. Our club is 1200 acres, made up of several hardwood wetlands dotted around a mixture of pasture and pine ridges. We know the bucks spend most of their time in the thick wetlands and come out to feed in our food plots at night. We are a "still hunt only" club. The biologist told us that since we do not have any deer corridors on our property we should do drives to push the bucks out of the wetlands. We don't want to do that. Is there any way we could develop deer corridors?"

"We plant food plots, but still don't have big bucks on our property," is a statement wildlife biologists hear often. Far too many property owners, and hunting clubs who lease land, think that just planting food plots is all there is to having big bucks. This is far from the truth! There are many steps that must be taken to have big bucks and one of the first is to start a record keeping system on the deer harvested.
The wildlife professional who guides you down the road to having big bucks needs an annual record of the deer taken, the more years the better, before making long-term management recommendations for your property.
