Hunting on Wildlife Management Area Lands

The David K. Nelson Wildlife Management Area (Demopolis) encompasses nearly 8,000 acres that sprawl along Demopolis Lake in Marengo, Sumter, Hale and Greene counties. The area provides excellent habitat for many game and non-game wildlife species.

The wildlife management area is operated by the Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and offers one of the best public hunting areas in Alabama.

Hunters with an Alabama Wildlife Management Area permit along with a valid state hunting license can hunt seasonally in this area.  For more information about the David K. Nelson Wildlife Management Area or to obtain a wildlife management area permit call (334) 289-8030. 

Hunting on Tennessee-Tombigbee Corp Managed Lands

Hunting also is permitted in specific Corps-managed areas, provided the hunter has a valid state hunting license, a Tennessee-Tombigbee Hunting Permit and is using weapons designated for the area as indicated on a current hunting map.
