Alabama offers some of the best hunting and fishing anywhere in the nation. Outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy lots of time in the wild hunting water fowl, migratory birds, deer, turkeys, wild hogs, or fishing in our numerous rivers, lakes, streams, farm ponds, estuaries, and even the Gulf of Mexico. Our state offers a rich diversity of outdoor recreational opportunities.
Because we have so many devotees to all things outdoors, Alabama has some great outdoor publications. Below is a list of a few of the periodicals devoted to giving you the scoop on how to get more enjoyment from your time in the field or on the water.
Alabama Outdoor News- AON is by far the most comprehensive and most popular outdoor publication in Alabama.Their Truck Buck Shootout has been wildly popular with readers through the years.. They offer some amazing prizes for subscribers that harvest the largest deer each week during the long Alabama white tail season. If you can only subscribe to one outdoor publication in Alabama, this is the one I recommend.
Bassmaster– Bassmaster has been a favorite in Alabama and the standard by which many other outdoor publications are judged. Since being founded by Ray Scott in 1967, it has become the “Bible of bass fishermen”. Ray Scott also founded the Whitetail Institute of North America.
Buckmasters– Jackie Bushman, a native of Alabama, founded Buckmasters in an effort “to unite America’s deer hunters.” You can find information about most anything related to whitetail deer hunting in Buckmasters’ glossy pages. The Buckmasters Expo in Montgomery is a destination event for many readers every August.
Outdoor Alabama Magazine– The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resourcescreated this magazine as a way to “share the wonder” of our great state. You will find helpful articles on many recreational activities, state parks, and wildlife-related information. It is particularly helpful that much of what is written highlights information from a regulatory viewpoint. Readers can gain practical insights about hunting, baiting, and game management within the guidelines of the DCNR and Fish and Wildlife Services.
The Land Report– :”The Magazine of the American Landowner” brings some of the most interesting interviews with the most recognizable landowners in America. The properties they feature are the most desirable and luxurious available across the nation. Two of their most popular editions annually are “The 100 Largest Landowners” and “America’s Best Brokers”. We appreciate The Land Report being a sponsor of The Land Show.
Great Days Outdoors– GDO highlights many facets of hunting and fishing in Alabama, especially along the Gulf Coast.
