Our 72nd Alabama Hunting Season Starts Here
Season Begins October 1st, 2023
There is nothing like watching a covey of quail bursting into the air over steady bird dogs. At Westervelt hunting Lodge we offer plantation style quail hunting with our experienced guides and dogs. Hunts can be half or full day packages and combined with business meetings or other hunts. We have hunting areas in towering pine stands or open field. Birds are cleaned and packed for all of guests.
Westervelt Lodge Turkey Hunting School
April 14th – 16th 2023
To be the best, you have to learn from the best.
That’s why our annual turkey school – 3 of the most fun, intense days you can spend learning and refining skills as a hunter, where students enjoy one-on-one time with our experienced turkey guides. They know our 12,000 contiguous acres very well and can share first-hand knowledge. Combined with input from our other experts, this school focuses on the skills necessary for a beginning turkey hunter to be successful, and provides landscape knowledge and expert tips to the seasoned hunter who prefers going head-to-head with one of our longbeards.
Continental Pheasant Shoots
Season Begins October 1st, 2023
Our Continental pheasant shoots are modeled after European driven-style pheasant shoots, with barrel-melting action. Hunters are stationed in 10 blinds surrounding a hidden tower. Three hundred birds are flighted as single or doubles through the shooters, and blinds are rotated every 15 shots. Trained Labrador Retrievers collect every downed bird.
Participation is limited to 40 shooters.

Proud Sponsor & Partner
The mission of the National Wild Turkey Federation is no less urgent today than when it was founded in 1973. What we do in the coming decades will be instrumental in not only enhancing wild turkey populations but also in the continuation of hunting and quality wildlife habitat for countless species.
The Alabama Wildlife Federation (AWF) is the oldest and largest non-profit conservation organization in Alabama. The AWF was established by sportsmen in 1935 to promote the conservation and wise use of our wildlife and natural resources and to ensure a high quality of life for future generations of Alabamians.
The mission of the National Deer Association (NDA) is to serve as the guardian of wild deer conservation (white-tailed deer, mule deer, black-tailed deer, coues deer, and Key deer), and our hunting heritage. The NDA is driven to assemble and unite a diverse group of stakeholders that includes hunters, managers, and the hunting industry to help create positive outcomes for deer and deer hunting.
I have been hunting at Westervelt for MANY YEARS…Off and On. I can remember my first deer hunt, but cannot remember what year it was? MANY YEARS AGO! BELIEVE IT OR NOT..I CAN ACTUALLY REMEMBER A BUCK I TOOK THAT DAY AND ALL THE CIRCUMSTANCES…YET, I CAN’T REMEMBER WHAT I HAD FOR BREAKFAST YESTERDAY! GO FIGURE!! I have been turkey hunting with you the past 6-7 years and have enjoyed every minute of it. SOME OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY I HAVE EVER SEEN. A TRIBUTE TO “GOD’S MAGNIFICENT CREATION.” I STAND IN AWE! I feel deeply Honored and Privileged that the Good Lord has allowed me to Enjoy what Westervelt has to offer. THANK YOU! GOD BLESS!
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...
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!!
"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."
"One of the things I like hunting at Alabama 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
"Folks don’t hold their pinkies aloft when shooting at Westervelt, but they do approach the hunt with grace and treat the birds with dignity." Quail in the South Gunn Dog Magazine, 2011
"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."
