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:

Continental pheasant shoots are modeled after European driven-style pheasant shoots, with barrel-melting action. Hunters are stationed in 10 blinds surrounding a hidden tower. Three hundred birds are flighted as single or doubles through the shooters, and blinds are rotated every 15 shots. Trained Labrador Retrievers collect every downed bird. This event will consist of two 20-gun shoots: one morning session and one afternoon. Refreshments are available during the shoot, and Westervelt Lodge’s famous fried chicken lunch will be served between the morning and afternoon sessions. Participation is limited to 40 shooters. Early registration is recommended and includes participation in one 300-bird shoot, refreshments, lunch, door prizes, and cleaned and packaged birds to take home for the grill.

At Westervelt Lodge, our hard-running bird dogs and experienced hunting guides take you on a traditional plantation-style quail hunt full of fast flushing birds and multiple opportunities to fill your game bag. Our intensive quail management program has created the optimum landscape for a challenging experience. The towering Southern pines we've long been famous for surround well-groomed quality hunting courses.

Our 12,000 contiguous acres of Tombigbee River bottom and mixed pine/hardwood stands are managed exclusively for wild turkey and white-tailed deer. Our intensively managed upland areas and miles of roadside management zones provide excellent nesting and brood habitat that keeps our turkey numbers on the rise year after year.
