Alabama bow season.......no does until 10/25..............
« on: October 17, 2016, 06:10:43 AM »
The Alabama bow season opened up this past Saturday.  However, they put a "no doe" restriction until October 25th.  I remember last year the so called
"No Doe" period was December 1st - December 10th.  That was during the gun season.

Does anybody know why they implemented the 10 day period where "no does" could be harvested?

Thanks...

It's because of the rut prediction study they done a couple years ago. The no doe policy down south Alabama is for better fawn recruitment. They claim the babies still need there mothers for that short period of time due in part to them being born so late from such a late rut.
Hunting is a way of life: Love it, Teach it, Live it. But most of all.... RESPECT IT and pass it on!

God, I miss hunting Alabama ever since my buddy died and hus kids turned the place into a paid hunting club.  @--0--0126

So, changes are tough but at keast you get to hunt there.

Sottupy for the soreful post, my wife refuses to let us retire back to Sumter county --9-908

My dream is fir my kids to sprinkle my ashes there when the time comes.

Good luck this season!

Flintlock,

I am from Alabama but, live in the Savannah, GA area.  I refuse to hunt here in GA.........too hot and the season starts way too early.  I hunt back in Alabama.  Granted the drive from here to my property is about 5 hours.....I know the reward is well worth the time to make the trip.  I plan to retire in about 3.5 years and the little lady and I will be setting up our retirement home in Alabama.

If I am correct, Sumter County is in the western part of the state.  Good hunting over there, too.  Good luck to you this season.
