Hunting & Fishing in Alabama’s Black Belt

Hunting and fishing in Alabama is a $1.7 billion industry, with more than 700,000 hunters and anglers spending on average a combined $5 million a day. Most of those dollars are spent in Alabama’s Black Belt, where 456,000 sportsmen and sportswomen spend $3.22 million a day, according to a recent economic impact study.

From white-tailed deer to wild hog to quail and turkey – even alligator – the Black Belt region offers the best hunting in the Southeast. And fishing is great, too, with world-class lunker bass, slab crappie, and a few fly-fishing streams.
