WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT AREA MAPS, PERMITS NOW ONLINE
Maps and permits for the Alabama Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs) are now available online and printed maps will soon be available at Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries district offices and license vendors near WMAs, according to the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.
The 2008-2009 WMA Hunting Seasons and the 2008-2009 WMA Hunting Schedule and information booklet are available at the same Web site at
www.outdooralabama.com/hunting. Follow the links for "Wildlife Management Areas" and then "Maps and Hunting Permits."
Information on youth dove hunts and the waterfowl hunting guide are also available at the Web site, and hunting licenses may be purchased online with a credit card.
Alabama residents between the ages of 16 and 64 are required to have a valid hunting license, management area permit, and management area license when hunting on WMAs. However, a wildlife heritage license is valid in lieu of resident state hunting and WMA license for small game hunting, excluding waterfowl.
The Division of Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources continues development, maintenance and management of more than 768,000 acres of land for hunters. These areas are financed with funds derived from hunting licenses and federal excise tax on firearms and ammunition.
