Press Release

Alabama Alligator Hunt Registration Closes July 8

July 02, 2014

Hunters wishing to register for Alabama’s ninth regulated alligator hunts have until 8 a.m. July 8, 2014, to do so. Registration must be completed online at www.outdooralabama.com. Only Alabama residents and Alabama lifetime license holders ages 16 years or older may apply for tags. Alabama lifetime license holders may apply for an Alligator Possession Tag even if they have moved out of the state.

A total of 240 Alligator Possession Tags in three zones will be issued for the hunts by the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The administrative fee to apply for an Alligator Possession Tag is $22 ($20 administrative fee plus a $2 transaction fee per person, per zone) and individuals may only register one time per zone.

Hunts are scheduled for August 14-17 and August 21-24 in southwest and west central Alabama, and August 8-24 in southeast Alabama.

Fifty tags will be issued for the hunt zone in west central Alabama, which includes Wilcox and Dallas counties and part of Monroe County. Forty tags will be issued for the southeast Alabama zone, which includes Barbour, Coffee, Covington, Dale, Geneva, Henry, Houston and Russell counties. For the southwest Alabama zone, which includes all of Baldwin and Mobile counties and parts of Washington, Clarke and Monroe counties, 150 tags will be issued.

Hunters will be randomly chosen by computer to receive one Alligator Possession Tag each, and the tags are non-transferable. If selected for an Alligator Possession Tag at two or more locations, hunters must choose which location they would like to hunt. The slot for locations not chosen will be filled from a list of randomly selected alternates.

Each person receiving an Alligator Possession Tag will be allowed to harvest one alligator. Hunting hours are 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. in all locations. All Alabama hunting and boating regulations must be followed.
