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 their best trophies among the white-tailed deer and wild turkeys roaming the 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 63 seasons since our establishment.

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

November 13 - 15, 2015

Share your whitetail hunting experiance with a well-deserving youth at spectacular Westervelt Lodge in Aliceville, Alabama.  

Known for it's trophy bucks and rich hardwood bottoms, Westervelt Lodge's 12,000 acres are anchored by a top-notch lodge with a friendly and experianced staff.

Youth hunters will get the opportunity to sight their rifles and target practice prior to their hunt.  All meals and private lodging are provided, but each youth must be accompanied by an adult.

There are few sporting activities that are embedded in southern tradition like dove hunting.  At Westervelt Lodge we kick off each new hunting season with some early September dove hunts.  Our dove fields are planted so they are a haven for these migrating birds. We have the cover and water sources that dove depend on.  Start your hunt with our famous fried chicken lunch and then depart for the field as the birds begin to fly.  Our staff will circle the field in an ATV bringing cold water or soft drinks, while updating you on the latest college football scores.  After the hunt enjoy some grilled sausages while your birds are cleaned and packed.  Minimum group size is 15 guns.  Please contact us for more information.

Season Begins October 1st 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.
