Alabama Black Belt Adventures Big Gobbler Photo Contest 2024

The 2024 ALBBAA Big Gobber Contest begins March 25, and voting runs through May 15 to allow additional voting time for any photos submitted near the end of the hunting season.

The contestant who garners the most online votes will receive a Black Belt Strutter turkey call package, including a custom Alabama Black Belt Adventures edition glass pot call made from locally sourced Demopolis mock orange wood, and an Otis Elite universal gun cleaning kit, courtesy of Black Belt Strutter. The prize package carries a total value of about $300.

Participants are allowed one entry and must fully complete the online form with the necessary information, including person (or persons) in the photo and the county where the gobbler was harvested.

Visitors to the contest webpage are restricted to voting once per day, per e-mail, per IP address. In the case of any dispute, the decision of ALBBAA officials is final. Photo contest winners from recent years are not eligible for entry. In addition, any photo depicting any violation of ADCNR regulations will be disqualified.

The ALBBAA reserves the right to approve or disapprove of a submitted photo.  Cause for disqualification of a photo can include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • The photo content presents the subject in an unethical or disrespectful manner.
  • The photo content is perceived to cast a negative perception of hunters and their contribution to the management of wildlife.
  • A voting violation which imposes an unfair advantage to others.

Hunters are also reminded to comply with all game laws, including purchasing a valid hunting license. Licenses can be purchased online through the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (ADCNR).

Only photos of turkeys harvested from the 23-county Black Belt region during the 2024 season are eligible.

The Black Belt includes the following counties: Barbour, Bullock, Butler, Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Crenshaw, Dallas, Greene, Hale, Lee, Lowndes, Macon, Marengo, Monroe, Montgomery, Perry, Pickens, Pike, Russell, Sumter, Tuscaloosa and Wilcox.
