Wingshooting Hunts

Our Latest Trophies

Since 1951, Tradition Runs Deep


Of the many choices for deer, dove, quail and turkey hunting in Alabama, Westervelt Lodge’s reputation for quality experiences has served as a benchmark since our first hunt in 1951. Guests pursue free range white-tailed deer and wild turkeys roaming our 12,000 contiguous acres in West Alabama – private property that rates as some of the finest in the country.

  • "Westervelt Lodge is one of the true hidden treasures of the deep south.  Sporting history and traditions still exist along the lazy current of the Tombigbee River in west Alabama. Every time I return to Westervelt Lodge, I am greeted by the warmth of the roaring fireplaces and the scents of old time southern cooking.  No doubt this is one if the south's last great hunting properties."

  • "Westervel Lodge, as run by the present proprietors, exhibits the best example of multiple use on a tract of land by any corporate landowner in the United States to my knowledge.  It has experienced the same thing that happened to game during the period from 1700 to 1800 in North America, except that it is on a far smaller scale and rather than being done by accident, in Westervelt’s case it was done with deliberate intent."
