Alabama Hunting Lodges

Of the many choices for deer hunting, turkey hunting, and quail and dove hunting in Alabama, Westervelt Lodge's reputation for quality hunting experiences has served as a benchmark since our first hunt in 1951. Guests pursue the free range white-tailed deer and wild turkeys roaming our 12,000 contiguous acres in West Alabama - private property that rates as some of the finest in the country.

"Westervelt Lodge gets in your blood. As a 21 year-old it was just a great job, but as time has passed and I've learned more about the history of the wildlife management practices and people who developed and implemented them at Westervelt it's become a lot more than a job. I'm extremely proud and honored to be able to add my name to that list."

- Steven Carroll: Lodge Manager

We’ve hunted 64 seasons since our establishment.

Here is a list of upcoming hunts you can be a part of:

April 1 - 3, 2016

To be the best, you have to learn from the best.

That’s why our annual turkey hunting school is the

most fun, intense days you can spend learning and

refining skills as a turkey hunter - is led by two-time World

Championship caller Eddie Salter. Combined with

input from our other experts, this school focuses on

the skills necessary for a beginning turkey hunter to

be successful, and provides landscape knowledge and

expert tips to the seasoned hunter who prefers going

head-to-head with one of our wild longbeards.


January 29 - 31, 2016

There is much more to enjoy in the outdoors than just white-tailed deer hunting. We all enjoy the deer hunting traditions, but it’s also important the next generation learns to appreciate hunting small game as well. Getting out on the ground stalking squirrels or watching a pack of beagles run a brace of rabbits are both fun and challenging sporting traditions. However it can become difficult for novice hunters to experience small game hunting because deer season coincides with small game season, making access and opportunity difficult. For the first time, we will offer a youth hunt package that includes our tradition of deer hunting and the opportunity for stalk hunting squirrels across our river bottoms, as well as a fun rabbit hunt with beagles.


Season Begins October 1, 2015

There is nothing like watching a covey of quail bursting into the air over steady bird dogs.  At Westervelt Lodge we offer plantation style quail hunting with our experienced guides and dogs.  Hunts can be half or full day packages and combined with business meetings or other hunts.  We have hunting areas in towering pine stands or open field.  Birds are cleaned and packed for all of guests.
