Alabama Black Belt Hunting & Fishing

From white-tailed deer to wild hog to quail and turkey – even alligator – the Black Belt region of south-central Alabama offers the best hunting in the Southeast. Its fertile earth has long yielded an abundance of wildlife providing legendary deer hunts, exploding bobwhite coveys, plentiful gobblers on the roost, and snarly wild boars.

Fishing is incredible, too, with world-class lunker bass, slab crappie, monster catfish, and a few fly-fishing streams. The most popular fisheries are Lake Eufaula (known as the Bass Capital of the World), Miller’s Ferry Reservoir on the Alabama River, and the Black Warrior River.

Beginners will find many adventures to choose from while uncovering their outdoor passion and honing those skills. Experienced sportsmen will find new challenges with each return trip.
