Here is a list of animals to hunt in Alabama during the fall:

1. Deer

Deer season kicks off mid-November, and according to Carolee Boyle's “Alabama Deer Hunting Forecast for 2014,” the deer hunting is great in parts of the state where deer numbers are increasing. In 2014, deer hunters enjoyed an expanded hunting season in higher population areas “to be sure hunters are in the woods during the rut,” Boyle states. The article also provides insight into some of the best Wildlife Management Areas to bag your bucks, listing 10 WMAs to consider for your Alabama hunting excursions, including one of the oldest WMA in Alabama, the Barbour WMA, with over 27,000 acres.

2. Turkey

The second most popular game animal to hunt in the state is Eastern Wild Turkey. While most of the hunting for this prey takes place during the spring turkey season, a short fall season exists during Thanksgiving week for those that want to kill their own dinner. Snow and blue geese can also be hunted during the fall along with other waterfowls like ducks, coots and mergansers. The seasons for many of these species also spills into winter dates as well. Birds that have no closed season and are therefore eligible for your Fall hunting trips include blackbirds, crows and starlings.

3. Dove

For dove hunting, be aware that the bag limit in Alabama is 15 per day, and permissible times vary depending on the season. For fall, hunters can kill doves during almost any daylight hours. Quail and snipe do not have the same regulations, but are eligible for hunting in the fall.

4. Rabbit

Beavers, groundhogs, and coyotes can be hunted year-round, but several other small game have open seasons that encompass all of fall, which starts in late September and ends in late December. These eligible small animals include rabbit, squirrel, raccoon, and opossum.
