Alabama Offers New License for Bait Hunting of Deer and Pigs

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – A new license allowing bait to be used in the hunting of white-tailed deer and feral pigs in Alabama is now on sale.

Al.com reports that the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is issuing the annual bait privilege license after a new law was passed. The Alabama Legislature approved the baited hunting measure last month.

There are several stipulations on the new baiting law.

The license costs $15 for Alabama residents; and $51 for non-residents.
