White-tailed deer are found in all 67 Alabama counties. Alabama's deer herd numbers in excess of 1 million, with huntable populations thriving close to all major metropolitan areas of the state. As recreational demand for deer hunting is growing rapidly, landowners in Alabama are realizing the potential income from leasing their land to deer hunters. This four-page publication describes the physical characteristics, life history, and habitat needs of the white-tailed dear, with extensive guidelines for herd, buck, and habitat management. Includes tables of deer-browse plants in Alabama and recommendations for planting.
