The Certain Southern States Are Ideal For Bird Hunting

Americans have always enjoyed great outdoors activities such as taking part in sports and being out in the open – and also hunting. Many enthusiasts in rural areas know hunters, and they take part in different hunting activities themselves, but the same is true for those living in cities. Those that love the activity and follow it, make time to fit some hunting trip into their schedule when it is time to break away from the boardrooms or daily grind in the metropolis. Therefore they make sure they know the states and counties where hunting is popular and well organised. It is true that some states are favored over others for certain types of hunting. For example, hunting in the Black Belt has been popular for many years, often for whitetail deer hunting, but not exclusively so. Wingshooting and wild turkey hunting in this area and all over the Southeast are equally popular. These activities are often practiced throughout various states such as, for example, Alabama, Georgia and further out. Avid hunters of birds and buck will therefore always do their homework to establish where they will be offered the best opportunities to hunt birds, buck or whatever animals they prefer. Once the enthusiast knows the county or state where they would like to hunt, the exact locale becomes important, such as the lodge that offers the hunter those opportunities to go out and have the best time before they leave again. Hunting lodges, therefore, compete for clients and business, and the best ones are those known for offering their clients those animals they are looking for, but more than that: sub-standard is not acceptable; paying hunters are interested in only the best, the healthiest prey whether those are deer, dove, pheasants or turkey. Turkey, for example, is a very popular bird among many hunters, and lodge and land owners that cater to this market, try their utmost to offer their clients the best examples of what those big birds are about. Lodges that stand out above


others are often those that offer good size flocks, flocks raised on good, fertile land with great access to food and water resources, space to breed and grow their poults. Every hunter wants to know they visit a great lodge or piece of land where they are offered the best, whether in Alabama, Georgia or any other locale where these birds are found. Because turkey hunting differs from, say, wingshooting, there are always certain safety aspects to be heeded, safety aspects specific to turkey hunting. Therefore the really good lodge will not easily send turkey hunters or groups out on their own; they will ensure that the best safety mechanisms are put in place to ensure that accidents do not happen, even though there are never any guarantees. Of course the lodge will offer information and tips pertinent to safety and other relevant, additional aspects that have an influence on the hunt itself, and the client’s chances at success. Good, knowledgeable, experienced lodges employ managers and support staff to assist their clients as much as possible. Some south-eastern states have experienced a decline in their turkey populations over time. Not so the good ones. The best of these lodges always try their best to ensure their turkey populations keep growing, even if they are controlled to offer a good balance between their habitat and hunting opportunities. Depending on the season that best suits the client, Alabama turkey hunting, for example, is offered by the best lodges during spring, and as such hunters know how to plan their hunting trip and/or leave from the office. Also, experienced turkey hunters know that they have to come prepared: this also means having the appropriate documents and licences for such hunts. A good lodge will be able to offer their clients information in this regard.
