  • Westervelt may be the only place in America where you can hunt 18 hours a day and still gain weight. Turkey Wars Sporting Classics (January/February 1989)

  • "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."

  • "One of the things I like hunting at Westervelt Lodge is that I know the deer are there.  It’s still up to my skill and a bit of luck to bag one." Rebel Bucks Galore Petersons Hunting, 1977

  • "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."

  • Being the Least “Avid” Turkey hunter pays off sometimes. I had a Great Hunt with Tim, the Guide.. He was as excited as I was and tackled the bird before I could quit crying from holding my gun up for what seemed like 30 minutes and was actually only 5… Anyway, we appreciate all that you do for us!! Looking forward to more business in the future. Be sure that all the guys at the Lodge know how much I appreciate them. Food was Great!! Lodge is great!! I had a blast!! Thanks again!!

  • Just wanted to take a minute and let you both know how much my dad, John, and I enjoyed our visit to Westervelt last weekend. It was our second trip and a delayed father's day gift...we could not have had a better time...Jay, Benny, and Jeff were excellent hosts and guides. They are always working to make sure you have a wonderful time at the lodge and during your hunt...my father especially enjoyed the ride down to the river and around the different parts of the property. I know that was a lot to ask but it meant the world to him. The cabin we stayed in was absolutely perfect....I think my dad will want to see if we can stay there again in the future...it was just right for our hunt and time together. We are planning to return every year, Lord willing, and I think I have at least a group of 4 or 5 that are very interested in booking a deer hunt, gunhunt, next season....and I bet I could get a small group together for archery as well....bottomline....I'll touch base with ya'll soon about future bookings. Thanks again...truly can't say enough good things...
