Smoothly. Capably. Thoroughly.
That's how deer hunting is done at Westervelt Lodge in Alabama.Our unique combination of prime habitat, ideal population level, and modern wildlife management techniques ensure a natural free-range deer herd unexcelled in quality. Located near Aliceville, Alabama, the 10,000 contiguous acre property is renowned as one of the finest whitetail deer hunting properties in the Southeast.
Wildlife management is a year-round program at Westervelt Lodge. From planting and managing foodplots to routine upgrades and updates of the property, the staff of trained wildlife biologists is focused on developing optimal conditions for a trophy-quality white-tailed natural free-range deer herd.
Depending on observed deer activity, acorn abundance, or stage of the rut, our guests hunt from either sturdy metal ladder stands positioned in hardwood bottoms or travel corridors, tripods and elevated blinds overlooking hub & spoke lanes or shooting houses on one of our many permanent game foodplots. Guests may bring their own climbing stands if they wish.
Education is important to Westervelt Lodge and, as a result, programs and schools are offered throughout the year. Learn the proper way to hunt and manage wildlife from enthusiastic, experienced professionals.
